Socket Weld Unions

Light Weight

     Bestweld manufactures light weight stainless steel socket weld unions with Teflon seats. They have been used successfully in a variety of industries, from plastics companies to distilleries, to pharmaceuticals and paper companies. Light weight socket weld unions can be used in many low pressure corrosive piping applications.


     Bestwelds Light Weight Unions are similar in concept to the standard ground joint unions but have a replaceable Teflon seat and a “Cadmium” plated nut. The ferrules are 304L or 316L Stainless Steel.

Cost Savings

     The time saved to fabricate Bestwelds Light Weight Unions will create a considerable savings to the user during installation and provides an easy access point to the interior piping for cleaning.
     Bestweld Light Weight Unions can help you save money when expensive high nickel alloy pipe is being installed i.e. C-276 and Alloy 20. With a Bestweld Light Weight Socket Weld Union only the inner ferrule pieces must be made to the same material as the pipe.
