Forged Steel

Forged steel is commonly used as a fitting material for pipes in various industries, including oil and gas, petrochemicals, power generation, and more. 

Strength and Durability

Forged steel fittings are manufactured by heating a piece of steel and then shaping it using mechanical or hydraulic presses. This forging process produces a dense and robust product that can withstand high pressure and temperature levels. This makes them suitable for critical applications where safety and reliability are essential.

High-Pressure Applications

Forged steel fittings are designed to handle high-pressure pipelines and systems. They are often used when standard cast fittings may not provide the required strength and integrity. These fittings can take the stress of high-pressure fluid or gas flow without deforming or failing.

Corrosion Resistance

Forged steel fittings can be made from various types of steel, including stainless steel or alloy steel. These materials offer excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. This is crucial in industries where the transported fluids or gasses may be corrosive. The choice of the specific steel alloy can be tailored to the application’s requirements.

Threaded or Socket Weld Connections

Forged steel fittings come in various types, including threaded and socket weld fittings. These connections are easier to install, making them suitable for various piping systems. Threaded fittings are screwed onto the pipe, while socket weld fittings are welded directly to the pipe.

Wide Range of Shapes and Sizes

Forged steel fittings are available in various shapes, including elbows, tees, couplings, unions, and more. They come in various sizes and configurations, allowing them to be adapted to different piping requirements.

Compatibility with Multiple Pipe Materials

Forged steel fittings can be used with different types of pipes, including carbon steel, stainless steel, and various alloy materials. This versatility makes them suitable for a wide range of applications.

High-Temperature Applications

Forged steel fittings are an ideal choice in industries with high-temperature processes. They can withstand elevated temperatures without deforming or failing, making them suitable for applications like steam lines or high-temperature fluids.

Regulatory Compliance

Forged steel fittings are often manufactured to meet industry standards and regulations, ensuring their quality and reliability in critical applications.
