SOME DETAILS OF SOCKET WELD FITTINGS

SW Fittings are family of high pressure fittings are used in various industrial processes.



  • They are used for lines conveying flammable, toxic or expensive material where no leakage can be permitted, and for steam 300 to 600 PSI.
  • They are used only in conjunction with ASME Pipe and are available in the same size range.
  • They are used in areas where pipe-work is permanent and are designed to provide good flow characteristics.
  • They are are produced to several ASTM standards and are manufactured in accordance with ASME B16.11. The B16.11 standard covers pressure-temperature ratings, dimensions, tolerances, marking, and material requirements for forged carbon and alloy steel. Acceptable material forms are forgings, bars, seamless pipe, and seamless tubes which conform to the fittings chemical requirements, melting practices, and mechanical property requirements of ASTM A105, A182, or A350.
  • They are available in three pressure ratings: Class 3000, 6000 and 9000.
