Pipe elbows

Pipe elbows are used to be installed between two lengths of pipe or tube allowing a change of direction,usually these elbows distinguished by connection ends. The ends of pipe elbows may be machined for butt welding , threaded , or socketed , so the elbows are consist of butt weld,thread elbow, socket elbow and other series.
Definition of Pipe elbows
An elbow is a pipe fitting installed between two lengths of pipe or tubing to allow a change of direction, usually a 90° or 45° angle, though 22.5° elbows are also made.
The ends may be machined for butt welding, threaded (usually female), or socketed, etc. When the two ends differ in size, the fitting is called a reducing elbow or reducer elbow.

Pipe elbows draws >>
Pressure: SCH5 to SCH160
Size range: 1/2 to 56 inches (DN 15 to DN 1,400mm), 22.5 Deg, 45 Deg, 90 Deg, 180 Deg
Manufacturing standards: ANSI, ISO, JIS and DIN
Process: butt welding, seamless, threaded , or socketed
Elbows are categorized based on various design features as below:
Long radius (LR) pipe elbows >>
Short radius (SR) pipe elbows >>

Note: L/R - Long radius, S/R - Short radius

Key Specifications/Special Features and Materials::
the material is selected accoding to the application use such as high temperature use,sanitary fitting,regular industrial use etc.
Application of pipe elbows:
Petroleum, chemical, power, gas, metallurgy, shipbuilding, construction, etc.
Abrasion resistant ceramic lined elobw:
SHS-self-propagating ceramic composite steel pipe and fittings, the new generation of wearable and corrosion resistant engineering pipeline, belongs to "863" Hi-tech Plan products. It is mainly used as grindable granule and corrosives in electric power, metallurgy, mining, coal, and chemical industry when transporting sandstone, coal fines, clinker, and aluminum liquid, etc. It is the ideal wearable and corrosion resistant engineering pipeline, with wear resistance 15 times higher than common steel pipe, smooth inner surface, and favorable liquor resistance.
Features of Alumina Ceramic lined elbow:
Alumina is a cost effective and widely used material in the family of engineered ceramics. Alumina ceramics have been developed and optimized for maximum wear resistance and corrosion resistance.

How to distinguish between pipe elbow and pipe bend?
