What is A234 WPB Steel pipe fitting?


A234 WPB steel pipe fittings mean the pipe fitting which material is ASTM A234 WPB ,
they are used for the pressure piping systems of moderate and high temperature
services. ASTM A234 is the standard of pipe fittings material , it indicates the materials
properties of different kinds of carbon steel and alloy steel, WPB is one of the steel grade in
this standard . W means weldable, P means pressure, B is grade b ,refer to the minimum
yield strength , like the astm A106 A53, Gr.B or API 5L Gr.B. A234 WPB is the most
common carbon steel pipe fittings material . (ASTM A234 A234M Standard
Specification)
A234 WPB pipe fittings are butt welding ends , commonly used to be welded with the steel
pipes of A106, A53, GR.B material, or API 5L GR.B material.

Type of the ASTM A234 WPB steel pipe fittings :


The regular products of A234 WPB pipe fittings are elbows, tees, reducers, caps, cross
. There are seamless and ERW A234 WPB pipe fittings, the seamless A234 WPB pipe
fittings means the fittings are made from the seamless steel pipes, ERW means the fittings
are made from ERW steel pipes . Welded A234 WPB pipe fittings mean the large sizes
fittings which are pieces welded from steel plates.
Manufacturing process of ASTM A234 WPB steel pipe fittings:
The process of A234 WPB pipe fittings manufacturing is called wrought which means it
could be casted or forged . Usually the ASTM A234 WPB elbows , tees, reducers are made
from steel pipes , the caps are made from plates. But the large sizes pipe fittings are
commonly manufactured in pieces and welded together .
Hebei haihao Group has more than 20 years experiences in ASTM A234 WPB steel pipe
fittings manufacturing , we can supply all the range of the fittings including the elbows
,tees, reducers, and caps of high quality , soon delivery.
