  1. Butt Weld (BW) Connection: Butt weld connections involve welding the ends of two pipe fittings together. This method is favored for its strength and sealing capabilities, making it ideal for high-pressure, high-temperature, and leak-sensitive applications.
  2. Socket Weld (SW) Connection: Socket weld connections feature one end of the fitting inserted into the other, joined through welding. Suitable for smaller diameters and high-pressure applications, socket welds offer a robust and reliable solution.
  1. Threaded Connection: Threaded connections utilize screw threads on the pipe fittings, allowing them to be screwed together. Common for smaller diameters, threaded connections are less common in high-pressure or high-temperature applications.
  2. Flanged Connection: Flanged connections involve using flanges at the ends of pipe fittings, connected to other equipment or pipelines. Widely employed for applications requiring easy disassembly and maintenance.
  3. Socket Connection: Socket connections entail inserting one end into another and securing them through threads, flanges, or alternative means. This method is prevalent in lighter-duty applications.
  4. Compression Tube Fitting: Applicable to metal piping systems, compression tube fittings achieve connection by compressing the pipe with a fitting, eliminating the need for welding.
  5. Grooved Connection: Grooved connections feature grooves on the ends of pipes, secured together through clamping or bolting.
