Commonly used pipe fittings for chemical industry include elbows, tees, reducers, caps and other components. Pipe fittings are often connected by butt welding, socket welding and screwing. When the inner diameter of the pipe fittings and pipe is greater than 50 mm, the way of butt welding is commonly used. The socket welding connection is mostly used for pipe fittings and pipe connections with an inner diameter of less than 40 mm or a relatively thin pipe. Of course, there are exceptions. Although the wall of lubricating oil pipeline is thin, it usually used butt welding, which is often used in some non-weldable components.
