Welding is the process of fusing multiple parts through the use of heat or pressure. Welding is generally used on metals and thermoplastics. Welding fittings are carbon or stainless steel pipe fittings that make the linking of valves, pipes, and equipment easier. There are four types of welding fittings, 

  1. Sock Weld- 

A sock weld is a type of welding fitting that is generally used in pipes. It can be made of stainless steel, carbon steel, or alloy steel. This type of welding fitting comes in six different types, socket weld elbow, socket weld tee, reducing tee, reducers, couplings, and SW flanges. It can be coupled in four different ways, full coupling, half coupling, reducing coupling, and reducer insert.

  1. Butt Weld

A butt weld is a type of welding fitting that allows the user to change the direction of the pipe’s direction of flow, reduce the pipe’s size, or attach auxiliary equipment. This type of welding fitting is generally available in the form of elbows, tees, caps, and olets. Butt welds are most commonly made of nickel alloys, high yield carbon steel, and stainless steel.


  1. Threaded Weld-

One of the oldest forms of coupling pipes, threaded welds are mainly used for pipes that have a small diameter. This type of welding fitting is found in carbon steel, cast iron, and cast bronze. Threaded welds are mostly used for domestic water supply, cooling systems, and fire protections. 

  1. Flanged Weld-

A flanged joint is a type of welding fitting that allows multiple pipes to be bolted together through flanges. This type of joint welding is also used to connect pipes with valves and fittings. Flanged welds/ fittings are normally found in the shape of butt welds, sock welds, and threaded welds. 

There are four types of weldings. Gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, shielded metal arc welding, and flux cored arc welding. 

Welding has large scale applications and hence is a booming industry at the moment. It can be used in specializations such as automechnical engineering and agriculture or it can be employed on a daily basis. As a result of this, welding is a high demand skill that is being sought after by multiple employers.
