Branch outlet fittings

Types of branch outlet fitting offered by M.E.G.A.

Among the branch outlet fittings, the so-called MEGALETS stand out, self-reinforcing branch outlets with a traditional 90° conformation to the main pipeline.

Depending on the different configurations, they are divided into:

  • Latromegalet, that can be installed to obtain a branch outlet with an angle other than 90°.
  • Elbowmegalet, that can be mounted on a curve.
  • Insert megalet, that can be welded directly inside the main pipe.

All these types of branch fitting outlets can be supplied with butt weld (BW), socket-weld, threaded and also flanged ends.

Megalets - developed and validated through continuous design processes - offer technical, technological and economic advantages over traditional branch outlets, as they allow the use of less filler metal and fewer welding hours as well as greater controllability with inherent non-destructive testing.

Branch outlets are manufactured from carbon steel, stainless steel, duplex and superduplex stainless steel, nickel alloys, copper alloys, titanium and other metals.

Branch fitting flanged outlets

Branch fitting flanged outlet is a type of piping component commonly used in industrial applications. Flanged fittings feature a flange at one or both ends, which provides a secure and leak-proof connection to other parts. This makes them ideal for applications that require high-pressure or high-temperature fluids, such as oil and gas, chemical processing, and power generation.

Branch fitting flanged outlets are particularly useful for branching off from a main pipeline to smaller pipelines, as they provide a reliable and durable connection. At M.E.G.A., we offer a wide selection of high-quality branch fitting flanged outlets that are designed to meet the needs of various industries. With our range of products, you can be confident that you're getting a dependable solution for your piping needs.

Nipple outlets

M.E.G.A. manufactures nipples, a one-piece branch connection fitting with an end that is either threaded or plain. Nipple outlet pipe branch fittings are commonly used in plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, as well as in industrial applications such as oil and gas, chemical processing, and power generation.

At M.E.G.A., they are available in a variety of materials, sizes, and configurations to suit different requirements. We offer a wide selection of high-quality nipple outlet pipe branch fittings that are designed to meet the needs of various industries.

Outlet fittings with butt weld (BW) or socket-weld

When it comes to branch outlet fittings in piping systems, there are two other common options for joining the outlet to the pipe: butt weld (BW) and socket-weld.

  • Butt welds involve welding the outlet directly to the end of the pipe, creating a strong and leak-proof connection.
  • Socket-welds, on the other hand, involve inserting the outlet into the end of the pipe and then welding around the outside of the joint.

Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages, and the choice between them will depend on various factors, such as the size and type of pipe, the pressure and temperature of the system, and the specific requirements of the application. 


How to configure the right branch outlet fitting for your needs

Choosing the correct branch fitting outlet for an industrial application is crucial to ensure that the piping system operates safely and efficiently. The first step in selecting the right branch fitting outlet is to determine the size and material of the main pipeline, as well as the size and direction of the branch connection. The branch fitting outlet must be compatible with the main pipeline and capable of withstanding the required pressure, temperature, and fluid flow rate.

Other factors to consider when choosing a branch fitting outlet include the type of fluid being transported, the pipeline's environment, and any regulatory or safety requirements that must be met. It is also important to consider the overall system design and the potential for future expansions or modifications.
