5in SW (socket welded) elbow is a normal size in industry applications.ASME B16.11 pipe fittings are forged fittings according to American Standard.


Socket Weld(SW) elbow is belong to forged fittings.Socket Weld(SW) fittings are high pressure fittings which are used in the pipe system,and only in conjunction with ASME pipes.SW fittings have same ranges of size(1/8”-4”) and pressures(2000lb,3000lb,6000lb,9000lb).

Class 3000 is the most common used among these pressures.Class 3000 can be labeled as 3M,where M means 1000,class 3000 fittings can withstand up to 3000 PSI.



90 degree elbow: These elbows can change the direction of the pipe by 90 degrees.

45 degree elbow: These Threaded Elbows make 45°changes of direction in the run of the pipe.



Straight elbow: The diameter of both ends of these elbows is the same.

Reducing elbow: A reducing elbow is a type of fitting which is used to join two pieces of pipe of different sizes.
