Betts welded construction belled laterals are designed for use on cargo tanks and satisfy a wide variety of piping needs. The belled lateral offers multiple advantages over standard fittings. Significant reduction in joint preparation and fit-up time can be realized while the belled end allows for a fillet weld in place of a more difficult butt weld joint. Slight angular piping misalignments can be easily accommodated. 100% leak testing by Betts ensures no weld seam leaks.
Lateral fittings are manufactured in accordance with API recommended practice 1004 with a minimum burst pressure of 4 times the MAWP per 49CFR178.345-9(b).
