A butt weld pipe fitting is designed to be welded on site at its end(s) to connect pipe(s) together and allow change in direction or pipe diameter, or branching or ending. This fitting then becomes part of a system for transporting fluids (oil, gas, steam, chemicals, …) in a safe and efficient manner, over short or long distances. Ameritube offers a variety of butt weld fittings in class 200 and class 700 and a large size range. Other types of fittings can be threaded or socket welded.
Belled end are made to fit over the pipe that they are connecting and are therefore faster to install due to less prep-time being needed to form the weld. There is no need to bevel or match connections on site before welding. The same weld would typically be used to join cast socket weld, forged socket weld or slip on fittings and flanges. Belled end fittings can also handle small misalignments in the piping system with no degradation to the joints within the system. Ameritube can provide belled end fittings in a variety of specifications, including Class 200 and Class 700.
