The piping industry is designed with different types of fittings that are utilized in connecting different fixtures. A Stainless Steel Threaded Union is a fitting that allows the pipe devices to be separated and reconnected back to the system without causing any deformation to any of the pipes. These unions are threaded directly to the fixture to securely seal the grade.
A Stainless Steel Union can be the main module of the unit connecting two corresponding pipes or an integral part of another fitting that can be easily separated. These unions showcase superior strength and have enhanced corrosion resistance properties. The Mss Sp-83 SS 304 Union has an 18/8 chemical composition consisting of chromium and nickel content. These unions have superior resistance to corrosive and oxidative media in stress-induced systems. A 316 SS Union is a grade that has higher chemical content of chromium and nickel with added molybdenum content giving them good corrosion and oxidation resistance compared to the 304 grade. These unions also have good tolerance to pitting and crevice corrosion in stress-induced setups.
A Socket Weld Union is seen in piping components of small sizes. In these unions, the pipe grade is inserted in a recessed socket and welded in place using a fillet weld. The robust Stainless Steel Socket Weld Union allows room for repair and replacing of certain items. They are referred to as the spools of the pipeline, which, when inserted complete the system. The repair process using these components is swift and saves a lot of downtime. A Forged Steel Socket Weld Union is processed at extreme temperatures to give its desired characteristics. These devices have low surface porosity and exhibit enhanced fatigue strength. The Carbon Steel Socket Weld Union is a cost-effective grade that is designed with a superior composition of carbon embedded in its composition. These unions are quality assured and produced with the best raw materials and technology.
