What is A234 WPB Steel pipe fitting?
ASTM A234 WPB steel pipe fittings are used for the pressure piping systems of moderate and high temperature services.
ASTM A234 is the standard of material ,which indicating the materials properties of different kinds of carbon steel and alloy steel. “WPB “is one of the steel grade in this standard. “W” means weldable, “P” means pressure, “B” is grade b .So A234 WPB pipe fittings are butt welding ends , commonly used to be welded with the steel pipes of A106, A53, GR.B material, or API 5L GR.B material
