Stainless Steel Elbow
The stainless steel elbow that walmi supply is butt-welding pipe fitting, the main function of elbow is to change the flow direction in a piping system. The standard angles of stainless steel elbows are 90°, 45°, and 180°, so they are named 90° elbows, 45° elbows and 180° elbows, 90° elbows and 180° elbows are also named 90° bends and 180° bends.
Both 90° elbows and 180° Elbows are available as both long radius and short radius, while 45° elbows are only available as long radius. ‘Long Radius’ means that the center-to-end dimension is one and a half times the nominal pipe size, namely R=1.5D. ‘Short Radius’ means that the center-to-end dimension is equal to the nominal pipe size, namely R=D.
