4Sanitary Butt Weld fittings are widely used in the food and beverage industry, particularly in Food Processing Plants, Breweries, Wineries, and Dairies. Conforming to conventional tube OD specifications, our polished weld end fittings make a flush connection that permits smooth flow through a process line. Sanitary Butt Weld tube fittings are best used in permanent installations where equipment can be cleaned in place (CIP) and removal from the system is not required.
Butt weld fittings are used to perform a number of functions in a process line. They can reduce or expand the ID of the line, change the direction of flow, split a line into two or more branches, or combine two or more sections of the line at a junction point. Other types of sanitary fittings (clamp fittings, etc.) have joints were turbulence can occur as the tube medium passes.
Sanitary Butt Weld tube fittings, by comparison, will allow medium to flow unimpeded because there are no gaps between the two welded segments. Also, the absence of a gasket eliminates spaces or pockets where bacteria can develop, which is a clear benefit in processing plants where even the slightest corruption could be catastrophic.
The most commonly used sanitary Butt Weld fittings are elbows, reducers, tees, and caps.
