Outlets or olets are integrally reinforced connections that connect a run pipe to an outlet pipe at either 45 or 90 degrees. The Stainless Steel Outlets connects a bigger piping component to a smaller one. These outlets showcase superior strength and have enhanced corrosion resistance properties across stress-induced environments. A Stainless Steel Outlet is forged at extreme temperatures and offers a clear advantage over a conventional branching technique. These outlets can be manufactured with different specifications. In the SS Socket weld Outlets, the outlet is put inside a recessed joint and welded in place using single fillet welds. The versatile stainless steel socket outlets are seen in high-pressure small-sized piping features.
These steel outlets are generally designed in 304 and 316 configurations. The Stainless Steel 316 Outlets are designed with a chemical content of 16% chromium, 10% nickel, and 2% molybdenum. This gives these outlets enhanced corrosion and oxidation resistance properties. They also perform well against pitting and crevice corrosion induced by acids. Stainless Steel 316L Outlets are low-carbon versions of the 316 grades. The lower carbon content in these outlets allow them to be welded easily as they are less susceptible to embrittlement. The Stainless Steel 304 Outlets are designed with 18% chromium and 8% nickel. These components have good corrosion resistance properties but are not resistant against pitting. They are cheaper in comparison to the SS316 grade. The Stainless Steel 304L Outlets are low carbon items that possess excellent working capacity at high temperatures.
The ASME SA182 Stainless Steel Sockolet is suited to work in elevated pressure and temperature applications. In a sockolet, the run pipe is connected to the branch pipe using a fitting. It is part of the socket weld family. A Stainless Steel Threadolet is a low-pressure grade designed with 90 degrees branch pipe. The branch pipe is screwed on the thredolet allowing it to be efficiently welded to the run pipe. The Stainless Steel Flexolet is a type of fitting that reduces the size of the fitting. These fittings are designated as per MSS specification.
