Fabricated Outlets

Product Description

AMERICAN regularly furnishes pipe with welded-on outlets for proven effectiveness and simplicity in layout and installation. Outlets can readily be located at variable positions along the pipeline, and rotation1 of the pipe before it is assembled in the line can often position the outlet at any desired angle. This section provides detailed tabular data for 90° lateral and tangential welded-on outlets. Lateral outlets from 45°–90° in 15° increments from the parent pipe axis are also available as standard in some sizes with some additional outlet size restrictions. Consult AMERICAN for details.

The outlets are fabricated from centrifugally cast ductile iron pipe, manufactured and tested in accordance with ANSI/AWWA C151/A21.51. They may be furnished with any of AMERICAN’s bell ends, such as Fastite, mechanical joint, Flex-Ring or Lok-Ring. They also can be furnished with plain ends. The parent pipe also can be furnished with any type of joints.

This is a shop-fabricated product and is not intended for field fabrication. Welded-on outlets for ductile pipe are produced with qualified procedures and welders as per guidelines contained in ANSI/AWS D11.2, Guide for Welding Iron Castings. Joint materials are furnished with Fastite, mechanical, Flex-Ring and Lok-Ring bells. Parent and outlet pipe are normally furnished cement-lined in accordance with ANSI/AWWA C104/A21.4. Consult AMERICAN if other ends or linings other than cement are desired.
