Pipe Joining Methods
Pipe Joining Methods Featured in Processing
The October 2011 issue of Processing featured a contributed article by Bill Lowar, Power Division Manager at Victaulic, describing the different methods of pipe joining. While welding is described as a proves of melting and fusing pipe together, flanging uses a series of nuts and bolts to compress a gasket between two flanged pipe ends. Threading entails cutting cone-shaped channels into the pipe, applying thread sealant and then twisting the pipe into the threaded fitting. Grooving pipe consists of joining pipe with the ease of a coupling.
