Branch Connections

Branch Connections are used to connect one pipe into a another one that is larger or the same size.

Branch Connections make a far superior connection when compared to a stub-in. They are frequently called Thredolets®, Sockolets® and Weldolets® , but those names are trademarks of Bonney Forge® for the branch connections they manufacture.

  • One end is always welded onto the larger pipe.
  • TOL = Threaded outlet pipe.
  • WOL = ButtWeld outlet pipe.
  • SOL = Socket Weld outlet pipe.
