Elbows Pipe Fittings are used to redirect the flow of water between two pipelines. Elbows come in a variety of angles, including 22.5°, 45°, and 90°. Normal elbows are used if the pipes are the same diameter; otherwise, reducer elbows are required. Elbows Fittings come in a variety of materials.

Elbow Fittings are used more frequently than any other pipe fitting. It allows you to modify the pipe’s direction with ease. The two most common kinds of the elbow are 90° and 45°. It can, however, be trimmed to any degree. Elbows Pipe fittings come in two different radius types: short radius (1D) and long radius (2D) (1.5D).
A 90 Degree Elbow is placed between the pipes to change the direction of the pipe by 90 degrees. There are both long and short radius choices.
A 45 Degree Elbow is placed between the pipes to change the pipe’s direction by 45 degrees.
A Long Radius Elbow centerline radius is 1.5 times the pipe’s nominal size, or 1.5 times the pipe’s diameter. Because long radius elbows have less pressure loss than short radius elbows, they are often utilized in pipes. It required more space than a short radius elbow.
A Short Radius Elbow centreline radius is equal to the pipe’s nominal size, or one time the pipe’s diameter. Short radius elbows are used in applications where space is limited. It does, however, show a high-pressure drop owing to a rapid change in the flow direction.
The 90 Reducing Elbow is used to alter the direction of a pipe while also lowering its size in a piping system. The reducing elbow replaces one pipe fitting and cuts welding time by more than a third. In addition, the decreasing elbow’s steady decline in diameter over its arc minimizes flow resistance and lessens the influence of stream turbulence and probable internal erosion. These characteristics prevent the line from experiencing significant pressure drops.
