Standard Specification for Non-Reinforced Extruded Tee Connections for Piping Applications
|Publication Date:||10 May 2000|
|ICS Code (Flanges, couplings and joints):||23.040.60|
1.1 This specification covers the pipe materials and dimensions for producing non-reinforced extruded tee connections manufactured by mechanical forming processes. The term "extruded tee connection" applies to butt-weld or socket-weld connections. This specification refers to the forming process that leads to welding or brazing.
1.2 The non-reinforced extruded pipe tee connection is an alternative to the tee fittings, nozzle, and other welded connections.
1.3 The non-reinforced extruded pipe tee connection has been widely used for systems in the marine, process piping, food, pharmaceutical, and similar industries.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 The extruded tee connection will be welded in accordance with Specification F722. Brazing of tee connections will be in accordance with ANSI B31.5.
