Advantages and Disadvantages for SW Fittings


1. The pipe is no need beveling for preparation of weld.
2. The welding position can adjust to flat welding.
3. Generally no need temporary tack welding for alignment. This is because the fitting principle helps to ensure that the alignment is correct.
4. The socket weld metal is not be able to penetrate the bore of the pipe.
5. It has found that socket welding is more economical than butt welding. Due to elimination of special machines and reducing precision assembly requirements.


1. The welder should be aware that there is an expansion gap about 1.6mm between the shoulder of the socket and the pipe​.
2. Internal cracks and expansion gaps in the socket welding system promote corrosion. This reason make them considered as less suitable for radio-active or corrosive applications.
3. These types of accessories are also unacceptable for ultra-high hydro-static pressures in the food industry. This is because, in addition to not allowing complete penetration, it leaves cracks and gaps which can become very difficult to clean.

Marking & Packing

Products are packaged to ensure that there is no damage during transit. In case of exports, standard export packaging is done in wooden cases. All elbow fitings are marked with Grade, heat No. , Size, Degree and our trade mark. On special requests we can also make custom marking on our products.

Quality Assurance

In Taichang all fittings and flanges are subiect to strict inspection at each stage of the production process from starting material purchasing to product dispatch. They are visually examined for conformity to ASTM ASME MSS DIN EN and JIS codes and standards. Upon request, official certified inspection Agencies can be called in to witness the material reports dimensions and quality conformity of products.
