Fittings


Lateral fittings are not covered by ASME B16.9 and unless they are reinforced, they are NOT rated at 100% working pressure of the pipe they are made from. Non-reinforced lateral fittings must be de-rated to 40% of the allowable working pressure of the pipe they are made from. These fittings can be manufactured, tested, and certified to material certifications such as ASTM A234, ASTM A403, and ASTM A420 in accordance with supplemental S58 of ASTM A960 (special fittings not conforming to an ASME or MSS dimensional standard). Our standard dimensions & special dimensions can be provided upon request. These fittings can be manufactured, tested, and designed at 100% working strength upon request with added reinforcement.


45 Degree
Reducing Lateral

Rated at 40% of maximum allowable working strength of the pipe they are made from. Can be UT or X-ray tested upon request.

45 Degree
Non-Reinforced Lateral

Size-on-size laterals are also rated at 40% of maximum allowable working strength of the pipe they are made from. Can be UT or X-ray tested upon request.

45 Degree
Reinforced Lateral

Reinforced laterals are specifically designed for each application. In order for these to be properly designed and quoted the operating conditions must be provided at inquiry to make the proper calculations for reinforcement. These laterals are designed to withstand 100% working strength of your application.

True Wye

Depending on the material grade True WYE’s can be manufactured, tested and certified in accordance with ASTM A234, ASTM A403, and ASTM A420 in accordance with A960 supplemental S58 (special fittings). These fittings are not covered by an ASME or MSS dimensional standard and dimensions can be provided upon request.

Stub End

Stub ends are manufactured in accordance with ASME B16.9 in short pattern and long pattern. They are manufactured, tested, and certified in accordance with ASTM A234, ASTM A403, ASTM A420, and MSS-SP75 depending on the material grade. Most of our stub ends are of welded construction and the welds are ultrasonically examined using phased array technology. Seamless stub ends can also be provided upon special request.

Butt Weld Cross

Our butt weld crosses are manufactured in accordance with ASME B16.9 and are manufactured, tested, and certified in accordance with A234, A403, A420, and MSS-SP75 depending on the material grade. Our size on size butt weld crosses 4", 3", 2" and 1" are manufactured from forgings and are seamless. All other sizes and reducing sizes are made from butt weld tees that are split, welded, and ultrasonically examined using phased array technology.
