Belled Lateral (Short Radius)
Print this page.

Betts welded construction belled laterals are designed for use on cargo tanks and satisfy a wide variety of piping needs.  The belled lateral offers multiple advantages over standard fittings.  Significant reduction in joint preparation and fit-up time can be realized while the belled end allows for a fillet weld in place of a more difficult butt weld joint.  Slight angular piping misalignments can be easily accommodated.   100% leak testing by Betts ensures no weld seam leaks.

Lateral fittings are manufactured in accordance with API recommended practice 1004 with a minimum burst pressure of 4 times the MAWP per 49CFR178.345-9(b).
