An Overview of 90-Degree Elbow

What are 90-Degree Elbow

90° elbows are used to connect two pipes that are at a right angle to one another. On a level installation, they serve as corner or railing ends. In other words, A 90-degree elbow is easily connected to pipes made of so many different materials, including rubber, steel, cast iron, copper, and plastic. This pipe-fitting device is bent in such a way as to cause a 90° change in the direction that the fluid or gas flows through the pipe. The elbow, which is also referred to as a “quarter bend,” is a pipe fitting used to shift direction.

Materials Material Types for used:
Materials used in 90° angle are as follows:

  • PVC
  • Rubber
  • Copper
  • Cast iron
  • Brass
  • Stainless steel
  • Bronze
  • Galvanized steel
  • Aluminum etc.

There are 45 degrees, 90 degrees, and 180 degree elbows according to fluid directions, It comes in a variety of varieties depending on the body material, including stainless steel, carbon steel, and alloy steel, There are two types of elbows: those with a short radius (SR elbow) and those with a long radius (LR elbow), There are three different types of elbow connections: socket weld, butt weld, and threaded steel piping elbow.

Steel 90 Degree Elbow Applications and Types

Steel pipe 90 degree elbows are a sort of pipe fitting that connects two pipes, to put it simply. The primary goal is to alter the path of events. As we all know, steel elbows come in a variety of degrees. The most common are 45 degrees, 90 degrees, and 180-degree steel pipe elbows. In case of exceptional requirements, pipeline systems also use other degrees like 60° or 120°.

The center-to-end distance of 90-degree elbow with long radii is 1.5 times the NPS in inches (R=1.5D), while that of elbows with short radii is equal to the NPS in inches (R=1.0D). Long radius elbows are utilized when room is available and flow is more important, while short radius elbows are typically employed in congested regions. Additionally, we are able to produce and provide stainless steel and carbon steel elbows in non-standard size angles, such as 60°, 100°, 120°, or 150°.
