What is a sockolet?

The sockolet is a kind of branch pipe, which is a reinforcing pipe fitting used for branch
pipe connection in recent years.
The sockolet replaces the conventionally used reducer tee, reinforcing plate, and
reinforced pipe section, and has the outstanding advantages of safety, reliability, low cost,
simple construction, improved medium flow path, series standardization, and convenient
design selection. It is increasingly used in high pressure, high temperature, large diameter,
thick wall pipes, replacing the traditional branch pipe connection method. The main body
of the sockolet adopts high-quality forgings, and the materials are the same as the pipe
materials, such as carbon steel, alloy steel and stainless steel. Both the branch pipe and
the main pipe are welded, and the connection between the branch pipe and the branch
pipe or other pipes (such as short pipe, wire plug, etc.), instrument and valve are welded,
socket welded, threaded and the like.

Sockolet VS Wockolet

Weldolet and Sockolet are basically self reinforced fittings. Weldolet is used for Butt weld
branch connection where standard tee is not available due to size restrictions and the
piping is of critical high pressure service. Sockolet is used for socket welding branch
connection, which require reinforcing pad.
The weldolet and the sockolet both have a run end and a branch end. The run end
connects to the larger diameter pipe, and the branch end connects to the smaller diameter
pipe. The connection to the run pipe is a fillet weld for both the weldolet and the sockolet.
They differ, however, at the connection to the branch pipe. The weldolet has a bevelled
end to butt weld to the branch pipe (which will also have a bevelled end), whereas the
sockolet has a socket into which a plain end branch pipe is inserted, then fillet welded
together.
