What is a socket weld? A socket weld refers to the weld that joins specific pipe fittings like reducers, tees, and elbows with pipes. The pipe is permanently joined to the recessed region of the joint with a socket weld. The pipe fittings connected by this method are called socket weld pipe fittings.Socket weld pipe coupling fittings are referred to as SW pipe fittings. Therefore, SW couplings, SW tees, SW elbows, and other such parts come under the rubric of SW pipe fittings.
