Carbon Steel pipe fittings contain 2.1% carbon of its total weight. Carbon Steel is when the content of chromium, molybdenum, niobium, nickel, cobalt, titanium, tungsten, vanadium and zirconium is not specified. The copper content should also be 0.40% of the alloys total weight.
The carbon content in these CS pipe fittings is high. This high content causes it to become harder and stronger, when exposed to heat treatment. The high carbon also lead to less ductility. High carbon also reduces the weld-ability of CS pipe fittings. Carbon Steel Pipe Fittings are available in varieties like Tees, Reducers, Elbows,Pipe Tee, Cross and Stub end. Carbon Steel includes three types i.e. low-carbon Steel, High carbon steels and High tensile steels. Low-carbon steels are also known as Mild steels or plain steels. Plain steel pipe fittings are commonly used for many applications. Mild-steels have low carbon content making it malleable and ductile. But the tensile strength is relatively low. High tensile steels are added with alloyants that increase its tensile strength. These High tensile pipe fittings have low carbon and elements that increase their strength. High carbon steel pipe fittings contain 0.30-1.70% of its total weight.
