Reinforcement Pad Calculation for Branch Connection - …

A reinforcement pad or RF pad is used to strengthen the fabricated or welded pipe branch connection joints. Standard branch fittings such as Tee and Olets Fittings are generally used to take out the branch from the header or runner pipe, but these standard fittings are not easily available and economical for a large size range.

Base Elbow - Pad Reinforcement vs. Heavier Wall ...

The attachment is usually another piece of pipe, but for the masochists out there, can also be a structural shape. Many times, the local stresses at the attatchment are such that reinforcement of the elbow is required. This can be done via adding an external pad or by increasing the wall thickness of the fitting.

RF Pad or Reinforcement Pad – What Is Piping

Reinforcing Pad or RePAD or RF Pad (Fig. 1) is a donut-shaped pad that goes around the branch of a branch joint to add strength to the joint. It resembles a round metal washer that has been bent to conform to the curvature of the pipe. With the increase in pipe size, the cost of branch connection fittings increases.
