ASTM A234 WPB pipe fittings are pipe fittings in which the material is ASTM A234 WPB. These types of pipe fittings are used in pressure piping systems, where there is the need to use high temperatures or moderate temperatures and various very critical engineering applications. The standard pipe material fitting that is very popular, is ASTM A234 and this is actually indicative of the material properties of various types of alloy steel and carbon steel. WPB happens to be one of the steel grades of this standard. W stands for weldable, P stands for pressure and B stands for Grade B. The most common of all of the carbon steel pipe fittings in use today, is none other than A234 WPB.
ASTM A234 WPB fittings are in essence, fittings that are of butt welding ends. These types of fittings are very commonly used for welding with steel pipes of API 5L GR.B material or A53, A106, GR.B material. The various kinds of SA234 WPB fittings that are available are cross, reducers, elbows, caps and tees. There are also available ERW A234 WPB pipe fittings and seamless pipe fittings. ERW indicates the fittings that are manufactured from ERW steel pipes. Pipe fittings that are of Seamless A234 WPB, means that these have been manufactured from seamless steel pipes. Pipe fittings that are welded A234 WPB, indicates that these are fittings that are of a large size and are pieces that have been welded from plates of steel.
The process by which ASTM A234 WPB & WP9 fittings are manufactured, is known as ‘wrought’. And this means that it could be forged or casted. Normally, ASTM A234 WPB reducers, tees and elbows are made from steel pipes and the caps are manufactured from plates. Albeit, the pipe fittings that are large in size, are manufactured almost always in pieces and then these are welded together.
To ensure that our WP11 fittings meet only the very highest global standards, we run them through a series of very tough quality tests. These tests include the likes of: Pitting Resistance Test, PMI Testing, Hardness Test, Flattening Test, Intergranular Corrosion Test, Tensile of Area Test, Micro and MacroTest, Flaring Test, etc. It is only after our fittings have passed all of these stringent quality tests, do we then send them to our clients, based in all corners of the globe.
We are leading manufacturers, exporters, suppliers and stockists of ASTM A234 WPB pipe fittings and we manufacture these fittings from the finest raw materials.
