What are Outlet Pipe Fittings?

Olet pipe fittings (otherwise called Branch Connection Fittings or Outlet fittings) will be
fittings which give an outlet from a bigger pipe to a smaller one (or one of a similar size).
The fundamental pipe onto which the branch association is welded is generally called the
Run or Header size estimate. The pipe to which the branch association or connection
gives a channel is normally called the Branch or Outlet size. Branch associations are in all
sizes, sorts, bores, and classes, in an extensive variety of stainless steel, chrome-moly,
and different amalgams alloys.

Different types of Olet or Outlet Pipe Fittings:

1) Brazolet (Brazo Outlet)

Brazolet is utilized generally abroad as of late, it is utilized to interface or connect the


fortified fittings. It happens of conventional associating ways. The assortment of Brazolet
is made in phenomenal Forgings. It‟s intended for use with KLM and IPS metal or copper
tubing. It‟s accessible with socket or threaded connections.

3) Elbolet (Elbow Outlet)

Elbolet is used on 90°Long Radius Elbows (can be manufactured for Short Radius
Elbows) for thermowell and instrumentation connections. Available butt-weld to meet
specific reinforcement requirements, and 3000# and 6000# classes for Socket Weld and
threaded applications.
An Elbolet is used on 90°long radius elbows, short radius elbows and can be used on 180°
returns. However, an Elbolet on a short radius elbow is not used often. It typically is used
for Thermowell and instrumentation connections but can be used as a drain connection
when room isn‟t available for using a Weldolet. The Elbolet is available with buttweld,
socketweld or threaded connections.
Outlet is used widely abroad in recent years, It is used to connect the reinforced fittings. It
can replace the reducing tee, reinforce plate and reinforced pipe. It is used widely more
and more in high pressure high temperature large diameter and thick wall pipe. As it is
reliability, cheap, simple, good for flow, seriation, standardization and choose easily. It
takes place of traditional connecting ways. The body of outlets is made in excellent
Forgings. The material is same as pipe‟s. We can make outlet from Carbon steel, Alloy

4) Flexolet (Flexo Outlet)

Flexolets are like weldolets with a minor distinction i.e. flexolet has straight bore while
weldolet has decreased bore. We give flexolets butt weld, socket weld and threaded ends.
Hence, you can pick any of them as per the piping applications.

What is the difference between weldolet and flexolet?

All Weldolets are Flexolets but not all Flexolets are Weldolets in the same way that all
dogs are animals but not all animals are dogs.

The Flexolet and the Weldolet products are our two branch connection designs. They
perform the same function, which is that they reinforce the strength lost when a hole is cut
into the header pipe and they connect the header pipe to the branch pipe. The difference
in designs is that the Weldolet has a tapered bore while the Flexolet has a straight-through
bore.

See below:

The tapered bore provides a better transition (reduces the flow resistance) and it also
provides a lower stress intensification factor, which results in less stress on the welds and
longer fatigue life. The straight-through bore decreases the diameter of the part and
allows for larger run-size consolidations (meaning you can use them on a wider range of
header pipe diameters). Because of the smaller size of the straight-through bore, the
Flexolet tends to be less expensive as compared to the Weldolet.

5) Insert Weldolet (Insert Welding Outlet)

Insert Weldolet is the most widely recognized of all branch connections, and is welded
onto the outlet pipe. The ends are slanted to encourage this procedure, and in this
manner the weldolet is viewed as a butt-weld fitting. Weldolets are intended to limit stretch
fixations and give essential fortification / reinforcement.

6) Latrolet (Lateral Outlet)

Latrolets are a variety of weldolets. You have to connect it in same way, however these
Latrolets make a 45-degree connection to the principle pipe instead of a 90 degree. These
olets can be either butt welded, socket welded, or threaded.

7) Nipolet (Nipple Outlet)

Nipolets is only a blend of olets with nipples. These olets work like the weldolets or
threadolets, yet are with nipple. They come either with a plain end or a threaded end. You
can utilize either as indicated by the applications. Nipolets are broadly utilized for vents,
taps, or depletes (drains).

8) Sockolet (Socket Weld Outlet)

A Sockolet is the same basic design as a “weldolet” or “threadolet” where the major
difference is that a Sockolet has a socket for welding versus a buttweld connection that a
Weldolet has. This makes a 90°branch and comes in full size or reducing for a straight
piece of pipe. Sockolets are available in Class 3000, 6000 and 9000 for high pressures.

What is the difference between a weldolet and a sockolet?

www.steeljrv.com
www.steeljrv.com

The weldolet and the sockolet both have a run end and a branch end. The run end
connects to the larger diameter pipe, and the branch end connects to the smaller diameter
pipe. The connection to the run pipe is a fillet weld for both the weldolet and the sockolet.
They differ, however, at the connection to the branch pipe. The weldolet has a bevelled
end to butt weld to the branch pipe (which will also have a bevelled end), whereas the
sockolet has a socket into which a plain end branch pipe is inserted, then fillet welded
together.

General notes:

 Dimensions: Top Row in Inches / Bottom Row in millimeters.


 Bottoming Clearance – X – The purpose for the bottoming clearance in a Socket
Weld is usually to reduce the residual stress at the root of the weld that could
occur during solidification of the weld metal, and to allow for differential expansion
of the mating elements.
 Socket dimensions are in accordance with ASME B16.11. Design per MSS
SP-97.

 Source comes from Bonney Forge (except the sizes in millimeters).


 Sockolet® is a registered name. Another often used name is Socket Weld Outlet.

9) Sweepolet (Swept Outlet)

Sweepolet is a shaped, essentially fortified; butt-weld branch association with a low stress
escalation factor for low burdens and long exhaustion life. The connection weld is
effectively inspected by radiography, ultrasound and other standard non-damaging
methods. It‟s produced to meet your particular support prerequisites. It reduces the stress
concentration factors and pipe stresses.

Weldolet Vs Sweepolet

Weldolets (aka WOL) are cheaper in terms of purchasing cost than sweepolets (aka
SOL).

WOLs may, in some situations (large dia, thin wall) warp the pipe, i.e. unstraight and oval,
due to excessive heat input arising form the relative thick required weld metal layer.

Since for WOLs the weld metal thickness is always greater than for SOLs (where one only
welds the base metal wall thickness), welding may require some extra time to allow
cooling off on the heat input to prevent banana-warping the pipe.

SOLs are less standard, I think most of the time custom made. Without having specific
experience with SOLs, preparing and beveling the pipe for it may be more
difficult/time-costuming compared to WOLs. For WOLs, you can weld them on, and then
bore through the hole. This gives a smooth weld profile on the inside. This may give the
best option for a flushing branch, as there is not weld metal „sticking into the run‟ (provided
the pipe doesnt become oval, as this will cause the pig trap to become stuck perhaps).

Since the saddle form is quite specific (but then again, the SOL may be laid down on the
pipe, and the contour can be drawn), and a lot bigger than WOLs, more material has to be
removed.

If you use a SOL and the run pipe is large enough in dia, you may counter grind the root
weld to become flush.

WOLs can be RT-ed, SOLs can.

WOLs are likely to give more peak stress than SOLs, since the latter has a much more
continuous profile into the branch.

10) Threadolet (Threaded Outlet)

A threadolet is the same basic design as a “weldolet.” However the main difference is the
fitting has a female threaded connection to mate to the branch connection. This makes a
90°branch and comes in full size or reducing for a straight piece of pipe. It typically is in
the size range of 1/2″ to 2″ and is welded over a hole either drilled or burned in the pipe.

You use a “weldolet” when you want to weld a pipe or fitting directly to the branch fitting
and a “threadolet” when you want to screw the connecting pipe or fitting (e.g. valve) to the
branch connection.

I believe there is a ANSI standard for the dimensions and pressure rating of these type of
fitting.

Depending of the relative size of the olet and the main pipe run the affect can vary from no
affect to causing the header to bow or warp due to the heating and cooling of the weld. A
good run of thumb is to never use an olet that is larger that 1/2 the size of the main pipe
run. Size in this case being the nominal size.

11) Weldolet (Welding Outlets)

Weldolet (Welding Outlet) is the most common of all branch connections, and is welded
onto the outlet pipe. The ends are bevelled to facilitate this process, and therefore the
weldolet is considered a butt-weld fitting. Weldolet (Welding Outlet) is designed to
minimize stress concentrations and provide integral reinforcement. manufactured to meet
your specific reinforcement requirements.

What is a weldolet (Welding Outlet)?

A Weldolet is commonly known on drawings as a WOL and makes a 90°branch


connection. It comes in full size or reducing for a straight piece of pipe. A weldolet is
designated by the run length by the branch length. For example a 6-inch weldolet on a
19-inch pipe would be a 19×6 Weldolet.

Specifying the Schedule of both the Run and Branch

Generally the schedules of the run pipe and branch pipe are identical and thus
specification of the equivalent schedule Weldolet assures the proper fitting being used.

www.steeljrv.com
www.steeljrv.com

EXAMPLE:
16″ Standard weight x 6″ Standard weight is specified as a 6″ standard weight fitting.
Where the schedule of the run is greater or less than the schedule of the branch, it is
essential that both schedules be specified since (a) The Weldolet‟s reinforcing
characteristics are a function of the run pipe wall thickness, which in turn designates the
schedule of the basic Weldolet fitting to be used;(b) The wall thickness of the outlet or
branch end must match the wall thickness of the branch pipe.

EXAMPLE:
16″ Extra strong x 6″ Standard weight
16″ Standard weight x 6″ Extra strong
Special care is suggested to avoid confusing schedule 40 and standard weight as being
identical (above 10″ schedule 40 is heavier) and schedule 80 and extra strong (above 8″
schedule 80 is heavier).
