Forged fittings

A brief guide on Stainless Steel 304L Forged Fittings

What are Forged Fitting ?

Forged steel fittings are pipe fittings made of forged carbon steel. Forging steel is a process that leads to extremely strong fittings. Carbon steel is heated to molten temperatures before being put in dies. After that, the heated steel is machined into the cast steel fittings.

Forged high-strength products are generally durable and resistant to environmental conditions. These pipe fittings have an excellent seal in your piping systems, reducing the probability of leaks. Forged steel fittings have a 37% increase in fatigue strength.

Stainless Steel 304L Forged Fittings and Its Types 

Chromium is found in Stainless Steel 304L Forged Fittings; nickel alloy has high flexibility and excellent shaping properties. It is not magnetic and has lower thermal conductivity than carbon steel. Lower carbon content in SS 304L Forged Fittings provides intergranular corrosion resistance and reduces carbide precipitation. It is appropriate for high-temperature applications as well as forged fittings. 

304L Forged Fittings are used for connecting, mounting, and configuring other products. 304L Forged Fittings are commonly used to join piping runs for in-line, offset, multi-port, and mounting setups to other tubing parts, tubes, hose, and other fluid transfer elements. Stainless steel pipe fittings or forged fittings are developed for use in applications where leak-tight protection is essential to quality and productivity.
