Pup Joints & Accessories
Prefabricated Pup Joints
Prefabricated Pup joints & fittings are used for temporary operations and removable piping systems. Each component is fitted with wing union ends for fast and easy installation. Commonly used in upstream oil & gas well sites, it can be useful in all industrial applications.
Contact us for urgent requirements as we have a large stock of unionised piping for figures 206, 602 and 1502.

Piping System Configuration
Straight Pipe (Pup Joint)
Standard lengths are 0.5m, 1m, 2m, 3m, 4m & 5m.
Lengths in feet are available on request.
Generally long radius (1.5 D) 90° or 45°.
Short radius is available on special request.
90° elbow made from a tee and a cap on opposite end to inlet. The cap is lead filled in order to protect the elbow against erosion.
Six combinations of equal tee fittings are available. When ordering tees, specify your requested position of male and female ends from left to right and perpendicular branch (M for male, F for female) as shown on figure: 1 x 2 x 3.
Special Fittings For Piping Systems
Special formats may be required in some piping systems such as wyes, laterals and crosses. FCE manufactures special fittings to client requirement comprising special shapes or specific materials.
FTE supplies racked containers to customer requirements which offer easier storage and ergonomic access. Proper racking also provides protection and an easier visual check of piping elements.
SPECIAL FABRICATION ON REQUEST
The tie-down clamp is one of the piping accessories supplied by Flow Test Equipment. The use of tie-down clamps may protect against severe damage and serious personal injury in case of unexpected failure under pressure and flowing conditions.
- With or without shackle.
- Cable can be supplied to client request.
ACME Thread Protectors
Incorrectly tighten union because of damaged threads makes the use and operation unsafe. Essential care by protecting threads during handling will improve your safety level. Hard plastic ACME thread protectors for wing unions are available.
FTE also provides data headers as per the same norms & standards the the pup joints.
