Radial/Tangential Outlets
The following configurations are suggested recommendations for the use and application
of welded outlets. These are typical installations showing a wide variety of situations
using welded outlets in either radial or tangential orientations. The details show the
utilization of flexible joints so that a bending moment or direct loading is not applied to
the welded outlet. The details may be used in drawings, project plans or submittals and
can be imported to CAD files as well. These configurations are not the only acceptable
installation arrangements for welded outlet applications. Please contact our Customer
Service Department at 1-866-DIP-PIPE for further assistance.

Welded Outlets Design Guidelines


1. Welded outlets are available with the following joint configurations:

Mechanical joint bell or plain end.

TYTON JOINT Pipe bell or plain end.

TR FLEX Pipe bell or plain end.

2. Additionally, the branch can be supplied flanged for limited applications such as manhole access or
air release. The parent pipe can be configured with any common U.S. Pipe socket. (Please consult your
U.S. Pipe Sales Representative for flanged applications.)

3. Pressure ratings are as shown in Table 1 on page 4.

4. Minimum thicknesses for pipe used in the fabrication of welded outlets are Thickness Class 53 for 14"
through 54" pipe, and Pressure Class 350 for 60" and 64" pipe.

5. Piping systems must be designed so that bending loads are not applied to the outlet (for example, no
fully deflected joints, no rigid joints and no restraining devices that create a rigid joint). TR FLEX Joints
are designed with slack in the socket to facilitate insertion of the locking segments. Provisions must be
made to stabilize the pipeline prior to hydrostatic testing to prevent bending loads from being applied to
the welded outlet (for example, all joint pullout must be fully extended before the branch is connected to a
branch line).

6. TR FLEX or HP LOK joints are designed with slack in the socket to facilitate assembly. It is
IMPERATIVE that all slack, or pullout, be removed prior to making final connections to the welded outlet
to avoid uncontrolled pipeline extension. Such extension can result in unpredictable loading and exces-
sive stress on the welded outlet.

7. Unsupported cantilever loading on the branch is not approved.

8. Welded outlets are not recommended in applications of persistent and frequent vibration.

9. Branch lengths are fabricated in accordance with the sketches shown in this brochure.

10. Outlet branches must be located at least 18 inches away from the plain end and 24 inches away from
the face of the bell end of the parent pipe. Multiple outlets on the same pipe must be spaced such that
there is a minimum of 24 inches of axial separation between the outside surfaces of the outlet
branches, no matter the orientation of the branches.

11. No portion of a welded outlet branch shall be subjected to impact or bending stresses during handling,
storage, shipment, installation or operation.

12. All coating and lining damage must be repaired before installation.

13. The weld area has a special protective coating that has been shop applied. If this is damaged, please
consult your U.S. Pipe Sales Representative for coating/lining repair information.
