The main pipe onto which the branch connection is welded is usually called the Run or Header size. The pipe to which the branch connection provides a channel is usually called the Branch or Outlet size. Branch connections are in all sizes, types, bores, and classes, in a wide range of stainless steel, chrome-moly, and other alloys. In when Bonney Forge pioneered the "Shape of Reinforcement" for branch connections, who would have thought it would fast become a recognized industry standard.

Today, Bonney Forge Branch Connections offer complete run pipe reinforcement while avoiding cracks, fillet welds, and sharp re-entrant corner reinforcement tapering at the sides, thus preventing abrupt changes in thickness where the fitting joins the header pipe. ASME B The ends are bevelled to facilitate this process, and therefore the weldolet is considered a butt-weld fitting. The bore matches the outlet bore, and the existence of a counter bore roughly the size of the OD of the outlet provides a socket where the pipe can sit, facilitating installation and welding.

The bore matches the outlet bore, and the existence of this threading facilitates installation, as no welding is necessary. Available butt-weld to meet specific reinforcement requirements, and and classes for Socket Weld and threaded applications.

Available with male-socket weld or male threaded outlets. The attachment weld is easily examined by radiography, ultrasound and other standard non-destructive techniques. Manufactured to meet your specific reinforcement requirements. Available with socket or threaded connections. Specifying the Schedule of both the Run and Branch Generally the schedules of the run pipe and branch pipe are identical and thus specification of the equivalent schedule Weldolet assures the proper fitting being used.

Example: 16" Standard weight x 6" Standard weight is specified as a 6" standard weight fitting. Example: 16" Extra strong x 6" Standard weight 16" Standard weight x 6" Extra strong Special care is suggested to avoid confusing schedule 40 and standard weight as being identical above 10" schedule 40 is heavier and schedule 80 and extra strong above 8" schedule 80 is heavier.

Example: 8" Schedule 80 x 4" Schedule 80 fitting or extra strong fitting. Designs for thicknesses greater than these can be developed on request. Holding an Olet in place for tack welding Remark s of the Author Make sure that the supplier has a design approval for the fitting there are many small outfits out there making their own fittings without any documentation Try the site of Bonney Forge.


Weldolet and Dimension of Weldolet

Sazilkree The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. For dimensional information and available sizes, view the Sockolet datasheets: By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. Colorado — Section For dimensional information and available sizes, view the Weldolet datasheets: If step wepdolet for flow reasons, request weldolet bore be machined down to match Std Wt branch. Weldolet Branch vs Header Schedule Threadolets and sockolets are for small bore socketweld or threaded branch pipes and the rating is to match B Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project foge. Branch and Run Size The dimensions for a branch fitting are a common source of confusion. For dimensions and available sizes of the Elbolet, view the datasheet.



Outlet fittings are forged products with high strength and clear cost advantages over conventional pipe branching techniques. How are they installed? Quite easily: on one side, the fittings example a Weldolet is fixed onto the run pipe with a full penetration groove weld and, on the other side, welded or screwed on the branch pipe. Of course, the header pipe shall be properly cut in the proximity of the area where the pipe needs to be branched.
