Leading ASTM A234 WPA carbon steel fittings manufacturers to offer SA 234 Gr WPA equal/ reducing tee with beveled ends to weld easily In Dubai
Types of SA234 Grade WPA elbow based on connection with a pipe?
Based on their connections, elbows are classified as socket weld, threaded or buttweld fittings.
- Buttweld elbows form a direct connection with the pipe. They are used for elevated temperature applications. The bevel edge of these fittings permits proper penetration of the weld.
- Threaded elbows are similar to socket weld elbows in terms of appearance. They are easy to install and remove because the openings of the fitting have been machined with threads.
- Socket weld elbows are welded to a pipe. A steel pipe can be inserted into the trapezoid area at the opening of the fitting. The diameter of a socket weld elbow is larger than the diameter of a pipe.
Stockists of ASME SA234 Gr WPA buttweld fittings offer UT, MT, or PT Non-destructive testing or as required, check ASTM A234 WPA concentric/ eccentric reducer dimensions and weight as per ASME B16.9
Outer die method of A234 Gr WPA Reducer: manufacturing process
The outer die method is one of the most popular techniques used in the manufacture of reducer fittings. The first step in this process is the cutting of a pipe, which is then pressed into the outer die. This action causes the pipe to compress into a smaller size on one end. The technique is ideal to manufacture small to medium-sized A234 Gr WPA Reducers.

What are ASTM A234 WPA carbon steel fittings used for?
Carbon steel alloys have high mechanical strength and good toughness. Because the content of carbon is substantial in this alloy, it exhibits higher hardness. These properties are beneficial in industries like petrochemical processing, power generating, chemical processing and OEM manufacturing.
