The Merit Brass stainless steel 316/316L butt-weld pipe fitting, schedule 40, is a long radius 90-degree elbow for changing flow direction between pipes. The elbow’s butt-weld connection is beveled to allow for a smooth bore and better fluid flow. Made of stainless steel 316/316L, the lower carbon content of this pipe fitting minimizes harmful carbide precipitation during welding, ensuring corrosion resistance. It meets both 316 steel strength standards and 316L extra-low carbon standards for quality assurance.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
Merit Brass manufactures pipe nipples following ISO 9001 standards for quality assurance. Family-owned since 1937, the company is based in Cleveland, OH. Merit Brass distributes pipe fittings to the United States and Canada.
