Often used in the power industry, this type of reinforced opening offers a number of design benefits. “Q-lip” style nozzles provide a butt joint attachment that can be fully radiographed. In addition, these custom forgings do not require fillet welding which enhances their performance when subject to cyclic (fatigue) loads.
COMPRESS provides several configurations when designing Q-lip nozzles. The Q-lip attachment detail may be applied to standard pipe, variable thickness, heavy barrel, and long weld necks.
The convenient Q-lip nozzle reports can be sent to your supplier for faster quoting as well.
