FIT RITE Precision Pipe Fitting System

Buhrt Engineering manufactures the FIT RITE Precision Pipe Fitting System

This pipe fitting system dramatically improves the speed and accuracy of pipe fitting. The patented design ensures perfect “pipe fits” in 15% to 20% of the man-hours traditionally required.

The FIT RITE fixtures are powder coated carbon steel. Stainless Steel Tube Fitting Systems required for Sanitary/Food products are also available. Tube and Pipe systems can be Passivated or Electropolished.

The primary fixture is the Fitting Cradle. The Fitting Cradle positions pipe, pipe fittings and flanges such that all end up on the same centerline. Two (2) Fitting Cradles are included. Also included are one (1) Fitting Rest each for Tee, Pipe Nipple, Pipe, Short Radius and Long Radius 90° Elbows and 45° Elbow. A Tri-Spacer which helps adjust, set and hold the weld gap is also included.

Speed, accuracy, and safety

Spools consisting of pipe, flanges and fittings, in virtually any configuration, can be quickly and accurately “fit” and “tacked” for production welding. Flange bolt holes will straddle the natural centerline or can be oriented as required. Flanges and fittings will be precisely aligned, square, level, plumb, and exactly 90° or 45°. The system fixtures work exceptionally well with multiple copies of the same pipe spool.

  • FIT RITE Precision Pipe Fitting System brings speed, quality, and safety to a new level for pipe fabrication.
  • The man-hours saved in the “fit up” process will quickly provide excellent Return on Investment
  • Perfect flange alignment and bolt hole orientation in seconds
  • Fits are always perfectly aligned, level, square, and plumb
  • No helper or assistance required to produce a perfect “fit up”
  • Minimizes the need for traditional “fit up” tools
  • Can be used in Shop or Field

We have been using the 2″, 3″, and 4″ FITRITE Pipe Alignment System successfully for 7-months…[This system] improved both our fit up time and accuracy of level and square. The FITRITE System is simple to understand and learn. As well as mobile and can be moved from job to job.
