Connections For Pipe Bends To Change The Direction Of The Pipe

- May 16, 2018 -

Elbow In the piping system, the elbow is the pipe that changes the direction of the pipe. Divided by angle, there are 45 ° and 90 ° 180 ° the three most commonly used, in addition to other engineering needs also include 60 ° and other abnormal angle elbow. Elbow materials are cast iron, stainless steel, alloy steel, malleable iron, carbon steel, non-ferrous metals and plastics. The connections to the tube are: direct welding (the most common method) flange connection, hot melt connection, electrofusion connection, screw connection and socket connection. According to the production process can be divided into: welding elbow, stamping elbow, pushing elbow, casting elbow, butt welding elbow. Other names: 90 degree elbow, right angle bend, love and bend.

Elbow is a kind of connecting pipe fitting commonly used in plumbing installation. It is used to connect pipe bends to change the direction of the pipe.

Other names: 90° elbow, right angle bend, love and bend, stamping elbow, pressing elbow, mechanism elbow, welding elbow and so on.

Uses: Connect two pipes with the same or different nominal diameters to make the pipes turn at 90°, 45°, 180° and various degrees.

The bend radius is less than or equal to 1.5 times the diameter of the pipe and is greater than 1.5 times the diameter of the pipe.
