These Carbon Steel Bend Pipe Fittings have good weldability, where all standard welding processes can be used.
These Carbon Steel Bend Pipe Fittings have good weldability, where all standard welding processes can be used. Our Carbon Steel Stub End Butt Weld Pipe Fittings are not quite as easily welded as the austenitic grades but low thermal expansion in duplex grades reduces distortion and residual stresses after welding.
Steel pipe elbow is an important parts in plumbing pipeline systems and used to change the fluid directions. It ranges in different types as per body material there are stainless steel elbow, carbon steel elbow, and alloy steel; As per fluid directions there are 45 degree , 90 degree elbow and 180 degree; As per elbow length and radius there are short radius elbow (SR elbow) and long radius elbow (LR elbow); As per connections types there are butt weld elbow, socket weld elbow and threaded steel piping elbow.
If you are always confused about elbow descriptions, like what is butt weld elbow? what is SW elbow? What does LR, SR means? Then you need to read below and we will explain specifications and applications for each type elbow, you will find out what exactly is your need before your purchase.
