ASTM A403 WP316 Fittings
How do the size and thickness of ASME A403 WP316 buttweld fittings affect its price?
- The larger the size and thicker the wall of the fitting, the more raw material is required for its manufacture- this can increase the cost of the fitting.
- Larger dimension fitting by ASTM A403 WP316 fittings manufacturer in India are more difficult to manufacture- this can increase manufacturing costs.
- Larger and heavier fitting can be more expensive to ship- they may require specialized packaging, handling and transportation.
- The size and thickness of ASME A403 WP316 buttweld fittings can affect their price based on market demand- higher demand and command a higher price.

What is the difference between seamless and welded ASTM A403 WP316 fittings?
SA403 WP316 seamless fittings are made from a single piece of raw material through a hot or cold extrusion process.- they have a higher strength and are generally preferred for high pressure and temperature applications.
A403 Gr WP316 welded fittings are made by joining two or more pieces of raw material together through a welding process like TIG or MIG welding. They are generally less expensive than seamless fitting and are commonly used in low pressure and temperature applications.
SA 403 WP316 pipe fittings are manufactured in seamless/ welded construction according to ASME/ANSI B16.9

What are the advantages of using SA403 WP316 seamless fittings?
- Seamless SA 403 WP316 pipe fittings are made from a single piece of raw material- they are stronger and more resistant to cracking, splitting and other types of failure
- Seamless fitting have fewer potential points of weakness like welded seams, which can be susceptible to corrosion- they are ideal for corrosive environments like in the chemical and petrochemical industries.
- They have a smooth interior surface, which can improve fluid flow and reduce pressure drop compared to welded fitting.
- The absence of welded seams in seamless fitting makes them easier to clean and maintain- they have a reduced risk of contamination in food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications.
- Seamless fitting are less prone to failure – they have a longer service life and reduced maintenance costs.
- The fitting have a smoother and more uniform appearance- it is aesthetically pleasing in architectural and decorative applications.
- They are less likely to leak or fail- they are great for critical applications like in the oil and gas industry.
