Braze Outlet

What’s The Meaning Of Braze Outlet?

These are fittings that form branched connections. Similar to a weldolet, they form a 90-degree branched connection. An ASME SA350 LF2 Braze Outlet is designed for use on brass, copper, iron pipes & KLM pipes. The fittings are available with either a socket or threaded connection.

Method Of Producing Brazolet

As they are intended for applications in elevated temperatures, the fittings are produced by forging. Once the forged Brazing Outlets are hot-worked, they will be cooled down to a specific temperature. The next step involves the branched fitting undergoing heat treatment according to ASTM specifications. Heat treatment is carried out by processes such as annealing, tempering, normalising, or quenching. The specifications also indicate the other parameters of producing them including the type of heat treatment and austenitizing/solution temperature. Along with specifying the temperature, and the cooling media, the quenching process is also detailed.

How To Choose Correct ASTM A105 Braze Outlets For Leakproof Connection?

It is important to remember a few key points while selecting a branch connection fitting. Amongst them, the run size is a crucial aspect that is to be considered, in addition to its integration into the piping system. The size of the fittings is designed such that they fit several run pipe sizes. For instance, if a branched connection fitting (½”) is marked 2” x 36” (run) by ½”, the olet can get integrated into all run pipes whose size is between 2” to 36”. If the fitting were placed on a 36” header pipe, the maximum radial gap will be 1/16”. The radial gap present will be between the base of the braze outlet at its crotch and the upper area of the run pipe. However, when the fitting and the pipe are welded, the gap becomes negligible. Another aspect that requires consideration during installation is the modifications made to the fittings. It is critical that the modification of the olet does not stray from its engineering design such as shortening or manipulating the crotch or heel of the olet. Yet, if required the skirt or toes of the ASTM A182 F304 Braze Outlet could be manipulated or shortened. To ensure a leakproof connection, the fittings must undergo a thorough inspection and regular maintenance. Furthermore, while welding the radial gap, a test of the piping system can help locate potential leaks.

Function Of Stainless Steel Braze Outlet

Similar to most fittings, ASTM A105 Braze Outlets change the direction of the flow. Because they are perpendicular to the header pipe, they change the flow by 90 degrees. The typical use of this olet is as an interface or connection to the fortified fittings.

Can I Connect A 3000 Lb Rating Carbon Steel Braze Outlet With A 6000 Lb Rating?

Yes, it is possible to connect a 3000 Lb Rating Carbon Steel Braze Outlet with a pipe that has a rating of 6000 Lb, provided the size for the assembly matches. While carbon steel has good tensile properties, it is advisable to not exceed the flow of media beyond 3000 Lb to prevent damage to the piping system. A higher force in the flow of media could potentially damage the fitting, thereby hindering the setup of the application.
