We are one of the largest forged pipe fitting manufacturers, suppliers, and exporters in India, with stock in standard sizes available for immediate delivery worldwide. We produce stainless steel forged fittings, carbon steel forged fittings, as well as nickel alloy forged fittings. At Metline, forged fittings are available in NPT or BSPT threaded or socket weld (SW) form in various steel grades. Forged steel pipe fittings (Socket Weld Forged Pipe Fittings and Threaded Forged Steel Pipe Fittings) are machined from solid forgings. The quality of the fittings is critical in that they are designed to withstand higher pressures. In designing forged fitting, the most important factors are: uniformity of wall, wide bands, sharp threads properly chamfered and unrestricted flow.
We produce a wide range of threaded fittings and socket weld fittings such as elbow, cross, street elbow, tee, coupling, half coupling, cap, plug, bushing, union, outlet, sage nipple, bull plug, reducer insert, pipe nipple etc. Forged pipe fittings are produced as per ASME B 16.11, MSS-SP-79\ 83\ 95\97 with pressure rating of 2000, 3000, 6000, and 9000 LBS. Generally the raw material size for producing forged fittings is 19-85mm round bars. We are a specialist producer of socket weld and threaded fittings in stainless steel, carbon steel, alloy steel and nickel alloys.
Forged pipe fittings (Socket Weld and Threaded) are manufactured in compliance with ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) B16.11, MSS SP-79\ 83\ 95\97 and BS3799 guidelines, and are utilized to connect nominal bore schedule pipes and pipelines.
What is the pressure rating for various types of forged fittings?
There are a number of forged fittings produced with different specifications, in size range of 1/8″ to 4″ (DN6-DN100). According to their applications, there are divided into two categories i.e. threaded fittings and socket-weld fittings.
Socket Weld (SW) fittings are defined in the ASME B16.11. As with socket weld, a pipe is inserted into a recessed area of the fitting. Both the pipe and the fitting are square cut, with no need for beveled end or preparation other than cleaning the outside, which allows easy welding and installation. Socket weld fittings are used for high pressure piping applications. They are generally used in piping applications where the nominal pipe diameter is NPS 2” or smaller.
What is a Threaded Fitting?
Threaded fittings are similar to socket weld fittings. The most important differentiating factor is that these type of fittings have threads for example threaded tees, threaded cross, threaded elbow, threaded bends, threaded unions, threaded couplings, threaded nipples, threaded caps, threaded plugs, threaded inserts, and threaded reducers.
