Forged Fittings are widely used to connect pumps, valves, pipes, and many other equipment. These fitting are mainly available in two types, such as threaded fittings, which connect a pipe with fittings by screwing, and socket weld fittings, which connect a pipe with fillet welds. These forged fittings are widely available in many materials and grades.
Grades of Forged Fittings:
This is one of the perfect materials to use for forged fittings. Stainless steel is available in different standards such as ASTM, ASME A, and SA 182. Various grades of Stainless Steel material such as 304, 304L, 3034H, 309S, 309H, 309H, 316, 316H, 316L, 316LN, 310S, 310H, 317,317L, 321, 321H, 347, 347H and 904L. All these grades are suitable for the forging process. Also, these grades are making forged fittings perfect to use in all complex and general applications of various industrial sectors.
Duplex and Super Duplex Steel
This material is also preferred for the forging process to fabricate different products. Duplex steel and super duplex steel have different grades, such as F51, F53, F55, F44, F45, F60, and F61. All these grades are available in standards like ASTM and ASME A.
Nickel alloy is used to manufacture forged fittings, which is available in ASTM, ASME SB 564, 160, and 472 standards. Nickel alloy is available in many grades such as UNS 2200 (Nickel 200), UNS 8825 (Inconel 825), UNS 4400 (Monel 400), UNS 6600 (Inconel 600), UNS 6625 (Inconel 625), UNS 6601 (Inconel 601), UNS 10276 (Hastelloy C 276), and UNS 2201 (Nickel 201). All these grades are ideal for forged fittings and make them able to sustain a certain amount of load in industrial applications.
The copper alloy has many grades such as UNS No C92200, UNS No 70600, 71500, C 70600 (Cu-Ni 90/10), UNS No C 83600, C 71500 (Cu- Ni 70/30), UNS No C 10100, C 10200, C 10800, C 10300, C 12000, and C 12200. All these grades of Copper alloy are used for forged fittings, and all these available in many standards such as ASTM, ASME SB 151, 152, 61, and 62.
Carbon steel is one of the widely used materials for forged fittings. This alloy is available in different standards such as ASTM 105, A694, A350 LF2, and A350 LF3. Carbon steel has various grades, such as F42, F46, F60, F65, F52, F56, and F70. Carbon steel grades are making forged fittings durable and sustainable for different industries.
Alloy steel is available in only one standard, i.e., ASTM A182. This material has grades like F1, F9, F5, F11, F22, and F91. All these grades are suitable to use in forged fitting manufacturing as per the industrial requirements.
Brass is also used for forged fitting manufacturing. This material is available in different grades, such as Brass CA 360, CA 345, CA 377, SAE J531, SAE J530, and ASA. All these grades are widely available in the market and making forged fittings suitable to use in different industrial sectors.
