What is Socket Weld 90 Degree Elbow?
90 Degree Socket Weld Elbow makes 90° changes of course inside the extent of pipe to form a piping system. The way to associate the pipe is: arrange welding spine joints, hung joints and connection joints. Concurring to the era handle, it can be isolated into welding elbows, punching elbows, casting elbows, etc. A meddle fitting commonly utilized in the pipe foundation for the affiliation of a pipe bend. Socket Weld 90 Elbow is utilized to put through two pipes with the same apparent breadth to make the pipe turn 90 degrees.

Advantages of Socket Weld Pipe Fittings
The socket weld pipe fittings can be used in place of threaded fittings,so the risk of leakage is much smaller.
Socket weld pipe need not be beveled for weld preparation.
The weld metal can not penetrate into the bore of the pipe.
Construction costs are lower than with butt-welded joints due to the lack of exacting fit-up requirements and elimination of special machining for butt weld end preparation.
