Zirconium Buttweld Pipe Fittings Manufacturers, Suppliers, Stockists – ASME B16.9, ASTM B653 Elbows, Tees, Caps, Olets, Reducers, Stub Ends, Crosses, Laterals, Return Bends

  • We have around 30 years experience in manufacturing of zirconium buttweld pipe fittings in size ranging from 1/2” to 60”, schedule from Sch5s to SchXXS. Metallica specializes in manufacturing elbows, tee, reducer, caps, crosses, stub ends, etc conforming to ASME, ANSI, and DIN standard. We also produce custom size pipe fittings made according to drawings from our clients. Our products are widely used in oil & gas, petrochemical, refineries, power plant, shipbuilding, metallurgy, paper making and other industries.
  • A zirconium buttweld pipe fitting is a type of pipe fitting, which is designed to be welded on site to connect pipes together. Welding of a zirconium buttweld pipe fitting to pipes or other fittings is generally done to allow change in direction of the piping system. Zirconium Buttweld fittings are generally identified or inquired in nominal pipe sizes with specified pipe schedule. Zirconium Buttweld fitting’s dimensions and tolerances are defined as per ASME B16.9 standard. All zirconium buttweld pipe fittings have beveled ends as per ASTM B653 standard. This helps create full penetration weld without any extra preparation needed for the zirconium buttweld fitting.
  • Manufacturing zirconium buttweld fittings – A zirconium buttweld pipe fitting is made by the process of hot forming that includes bending and forming to shape. The starting material of butt weld fitting is a pipe that is cut to length, heated and molded into specific shapes by means of dies. Heat treatment is also done to remove residual stresses and obtain desired mechanical properties.
  • Being one of the largest volume zirconium buttweld pipe fittings manufacturer and supplier in Mumbai, we can guarantee you the lowest prices. At Metallica Metals, we believe in selling in volume and increasing our customer base across the globe, enabling us to work on low margins. We have an extensive trader network across India, USA, Europe and the Middle East, who buy from us on a regular basis.
  • In addition to traders, we have many EPC contractors, companies and end users in various industries as our customers. We are leading zirconium buttweld fittings suppliers for various applications ranging from low/medium/high pressure or temperatures.
  • The major grades of Zirconium buttweld pipe fittings are Zr702 (R60702), Zr704 (R60704) and Zr705 (R60705). Zirconium alloys have low neutron absorption, therefore Zircaloy-2 (R60802) and Zircaloy-4 are designed to serve for nuclear industry which is stipulated with low Hf content < 0.01% per ASTM B353.
  • ASME 16.9 covers overall dimensions, tolerances, ratings, testing, and markings for factory-made wrought zirconium butt-welding fittings in sizes NPS 1⁄2 through NPS 48 (DN 15 through DN 1200). The term “wrought” denotes fittings made of seamless or welded pipes, tubing, plates, or forgings. These fittings include long radius elbows, reducing elbows, long radius returns, short radius elbows, short radius 180° returns, 3D elbows, straight tees, straight crosses, reducing tees, reducing crosses, lap joint stub ends, caps, concentric reducers, and eccentric reducers.Butt Weld Pipe Fittings Manufacturers and Suppliers

What is Zirconium?

Zirconium is a lustrous, greyish-white, soft, ductile and malleable metal that is solid at room temperature, though it is hard and brittle at lesser purities. Zirconium is a kind of active metal, which is easy to produce oxidation reaction. It can react with oxygen in the air at room temperature to form an oxide protective film. This protective film gives zirconium and zirconium alloys the best corrosion resistance. This oxide film can be further strengthened by heat treatment, and the surface microhardness can reach Vicat 480 (Rockwell C-scale 47). Most zircon is used directly in high-temperature applications. Even at low temperature, zirconium alloy has good ductility and strength similar to other engineering alloys. Oxygen is not only an indispensable component of oxide film, but also an alloy element to fill the structural gap and increase the strength of zirconium alloy. Zirconium alloy has no tendency from plasticity to embrittlement at low temperature. This material is refractory, hard and resistant to chemical attack. Because of these properties, zircon finds many applications, few of which are highly publicized.

With good nuclear properties and corrosion resistance, zirconium product is very important material for nuclear. Zirconium product mainly used for chemical equipment. For the higher cost, the zirconium tube use is not very common. In the chemical industry, it is mainly used in hydrochloric acid, molten alkali, acetic acid and other industries.

What is a Zirconium Seamless Buttweld Fitting?

  • A seamless buttweld pipe fitting is made directly from a section of seamless pipe material, by applying heat and pressure to transform pipe directly into an elbow or other shape.
  • A seamless fitting has no welded parts by itself, a characteristic demanded in some critical applications.
  • By comparison, a regular buttweld fitting has one, two or more welds, depending on dimension, shape and manufacturing method.
  • No weld means less risk of weld yield and porosities.

Properties of Zirconium Buttweld Fittings

  • Long-term validity as compared to other materials
  • Cost saving if it is well maintained
  • Corrosion resistant
  • High heat transfer efficiency
  • Eliminates expensive downtime due to equipment failure

Prices for Zirconium Buttweld Pipe Fittings

Prices for Zirconium buttweld pipe fittings are directly co related to prices of the raw materials such as iron ore, metal scrap, chromium, nickel and various other alloying elements. The production cost of heat resistant stainless steel and nickel alloy plates is high as they contain high amount of nickel and chromium. Meanwhile, mild steel material is among the lowest cost steel available, followed by carbon steel, 400 series stainless steels, aluminium, alloy steel, and 300 series stainless steel. Special alloys such as titanium, Inconel, Monel and Hastelloy cost very high as the nickel, chromium and moly content is very high.
