What Is a Pipe Elbow?

An elbow is a type of pipe fitting installed between two pipes mainly to change the course of direction. These buttweld fitting elbows are normally available in 90°, 60°, and 45° angles. However, nowadays, there are many other degrees of elbows available.

Reducing elbow, also known as reducer elbow, is a certain type when both the ends of elbow differs in sizes. This is normally used to connect two different sizes of pipe with a significant turn.

Long Radius Elbow and Short Radius Elbow

We are proud supplier of long radius and short radius elbows. In long-radius (LR) elbows, the radius is 1.5 times the pipe diameter, whereas in short-radius (SR) elbows, the radius is equal to the pipe diameter.

LR elbows are commonly used in applications with low pressure or minimal turbulence and where flow is critical. SR elbows are apt for pressurized systems and with tight spaces.

90° and 45° Elbows

90-degree elbow, commonly known as ‘90 bend’, ‘quarter bend’, or ‘90 ell’, gives a 90° turn to the connecting pipes. It is mainly used while connecting hoses to valves, deck drains, or water pumps.

A 45-degree elbow, also called as ’45 bend’, is widely used in number of industries such as water supply, air conditioning, agriculture, solar-energy facility, and electronic, chemical, and food pipeline networks.

Apart from buttweld elbows, you can also find threaded elbows and socket elbows with us.
