Alloy Steel Pipe Fittings have a variety of elements in the range of 1.0-50% content, of its total weight. Manganese, molybdenum, chromium, silicon, vanadium and boron are the elements commonly alloyed with Alloy Steel products. Some of the less alloyed elements include copper, zirconium, cobalt, titanium, cerium, tungsten, zinc, tin, lean, and niobium.
All steels are basically alloys, but not all steels are named “Alloy Steels”. The elements alloyed with alloy steel Pipe Fittings give them different properties that make it effective in many applications. Other applicable properties of pipe fittings include corrosion resistance, toughness, wear resistance, strength and hardenability, Alloy steel pipe fittings include types like Tees, Reducers, Elbows, Cross, Pipe Bend and Stub End. Corrosion resistance and extreme temperature usability is enhanced with the addition of alloyants in high quantities. Strength and hardenability are enhanced with the addition of small quantities of alloyants. Exotic applications such as jet engine parts, spacecraft parts and nuclear reactor parts are made using alloy steels. The ferromagnetic properties due to iron present in alloy steel make it usable in electric motors in transformers.
