Why are fittings sometimes thicker and heavier than pipes to which they are connected

Why are fittings sometimes thicker and heavier than pipes to which they are connected

Fittings are sometimes thicker than their connecting pipes to meet performance requirements or due to manufacturing reasons.

Due to fitting geometry, stress is very different when compared to a pipe. Using extra material is often necessary to compensate for such additional stress, especially for tees and tight curve elbows.

Fitting manufacturers may not always stock plates or pipes for all metal grades or sizes. When responding to an order, manufacturers always use the right metal or alloy, but sometimes made with next-higher available plate or pipe size while still respecting specified inside diameters.
