Piping connections of the weld socket type are advisable when the service conditions of any system and or environmental conditions are adverse.

For example:

– Heavy intermittent vibration stresses

– Strong water hammering

– Extreme temperatures, wide temperature variations

– Systems where installation time is expensive

Welding sockets are easily compatible with couplings of the cutting ring type, remove the ring and fit the welding socket instead.
