square pipe elbow

When pipes or tubes need to change direction, the use of an elbow is usually required. This devise usually follows a 90o or 45o angle, yet other specific angles may be necessary. Depending on the size of the ends, a reducing elbow or reducer elbow can be used, both of which having specially machined ends for butt welding, threaded (often female), or socketed.

When it comes to elbows, there are plenty of variations one can choose from. By far, 90-degree elbows are the most popular option for plumbing projects. But, depending on the individual job spec, other types might be desired. For instance, an elbow joint angled at 45 degrees can be good in certain cases. Moreover, the size should also be taken into consideration before purchasing an elbow joint- 3-inch being the most common. Plus, not to forget about material- stainless steel and PVC can both be utilized for various purposes. But elbow thickness is key too-with Schedule 40 and 80 being the go-to’s.

Creating a square pipe elbow requires two key steps. To start, you must insert a mandrel with the desired shape into the pipe. Then, a die with a cutting edge is placed over the mandrel and used to shape the pipe to match the elbow design. This time-honoured process using a mandrel and die set is one of the most popular methods for creating square pipe elbows.

For intricate, precise elbow shaping, one may opt to utilize a press. This machine comes complete with a die in the exact elbow outline desired. It is simply placed onto the pipe, with the pressure from its hydraulic ram compressing it into the perfect shape. In turn, the die slices into the tube, etched out in the form of an elbow.

Bridging two pieces of pipe together with weld metal is a surefire way to create an elbow. To begin, the pipe is situated side by side. The welder then disperses a row of hot weld metal along the point of connection between the pipes. Afterward, a grinder is utilized to rid the area of unnecessary weld material.

There are lots of harnessing opportunities when it comes to elbows and their various applications. For instance, in plumbing networks, elbows enable two pipes to attach at a precise right-angle, opening up alternatives for directional changes. They can also provide connection points between segments of ductwork in HVAC systems, and serve as a link between pieces of exhaust piping in automotive technology.

From 3-inch to 12-inch, whoever said size doesn’t matter certainly wasn’t referring to the world of elbows! The size and diameter of the pipe a person is working with will determine the elbow’s appropriate size. And fortunately, whatever the dimension, there is plentiful availability.

When determining the material best-suited for your elbow, take into account its intended application. A range of materials exist, including stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, brass, bronze, and copper. Most often, however, these three – stainless steel, carbon steel, and aluminum – will suffice.

From ninety to one-eighty, bent elbows come in a variety of shapes and sizes – for whatever your application may be. Most commonly seen in ninety and forty-five degree angles, options such as thirty, sixty and one-hundred-eighty degrees are available for a variety of applications. So when it comes to elbows, choose wisely based on your needs.

There are various iterations of elbows available, and the style you choose will depend on where it’s being installed. Long radius elbows and short radius elbows are two of the most commonly employed varieties, though butt weld elbows and socket weld elbows are also accessible and useful depending on where they’re being affixed.

A myriad of applications rely on the elbow, from household tasks to industrial endeavors. Here is a look at some of the most frequent uses.

• Plumbing – Elbows are a useful tool for pivoting pipes that need to shift directions. Though they are most often used to interconnect two separate pipes at a 90-degree angle, these components also enable abrupt changes of course.

To bring two sections of ductwork together, HVAC elbows are the joiner of choice.

Strong-willed automotive elbows are put to the test when it comes to joining two sections of exhaust piping.
