Pipe tee

A pipe tee is also called triplet,three way and "T" pieces and it can be used to either combine or split a fluid flow. Most common are tees with the same inlet and outlet sizes, but 'reducing' tees are available as well.

Tee Size

Pipe Tee is a type of pipe fitting which is T-shaped having two outlets, at 90° to the connection to the main line.

Reducing tee
Reducing tee

Reducing tee has a branch that is smaller than main run allows for branching off to a smaller pipe of equipment from main run.

Equal tees
Equal tee (or straight tee), means the branch diameter of this tee is same with the main pipe (Run pipe) diameter of this tee.
Lateral Tee
Lateral Tee
A Lateral pipe tee means a pipe fitting which is similar to a tee but has a side opening outlet branch at a 45 degree angle.
Barred tee
Barred Tee
A barred tee is a tee or any fitting with a branch used in pipelines that is pigged and has a restriction bar welded internally preventing the pig from traveling down a branch connection.

Saddle previously
Saddle previously is the ventilation ducts 'crotch tee', its shaped like pants, there Equal and unequal diameter, the formal name is "tube tapered pants tee."
Pipe cross
Pipe cross is used in the place where four pipes meet with the same diamete, A cross fitting allows four direction transition in pipeline fields.
Forged Tee
Forged Tee Fittings are pipe fittings that be formed mainly by forging. Forged Steel Tees conform to ASTM A105 and ASME SA105.

TEES: Extrusion method (Hot Forming)

The hot-extrusion process consists of enclosing a piece of metal, heated to forging temperature, in a chamber called a "container" having a die at one end with an opening of the shape of the desired finished section, and applying pressure to the metal through the opposite end of the container. The metal is forced through the opening, the shape of which it assumes in cross-section, as the metal flows plastically under the great pressures used.


Hot forming

Tees using raw material with a bigger diameter than the finished product, the branch outlet is extruded from pipe while the main body is being pressed.

The outlet's wall thickness can also be adjusted as needed. Applied to Tees with large diameters, heavy wall thickness and/or special material with challenging workability that cannot be manufactured using the hydraulic bulge method.



Fitting specification, Standard and identification

There are different varieties of pipe fittings made of various materials and available in various shapes and sizes.
