ASMEB16.9 11/2 IN ASTM A53B 4D Bend

Steel pipe bend two pipes into a certain angle and connects them together to change the direction of the pipe. it could be bend directly from a finished pipe with cold bending processes, to different degrees.

Rated 4.7/5 based on 423 customer reviews

ASMEB16.9 is the standard for welded pipe fittings, 11/2 IN ASTM A53B 4D Bend used to change the pipeline direction. 3D and 5D bends are most common use in long pipelines. After that is 6D and 8D bend, as the compensation to complete for small degree change.Steel pipe bending usually required in large diameter in oil and gas pipelines, since it has better capacity to transport the material, and long pipelines will need different radius of pipe bends to be installed in complex conditions.

Product features

  • Since there is no irregular surface inside the pipe and the fluid does not have to change direction suddenly, the flow of bend is usually smoother.
  • They can be almost any bending radius and angle.
  • Pipe bends are commonly produced on site to meet a specific need by hot induction bending or cold bending.

Pipe Bend VS Elbow

  • Bending Radius of Bend and Elbow

Bending Radius of  Bend and Elbow

Steel pipe bend radius: Above 2 times of D, so there are 2D, 2.5D, 3D, 5D, 6D, 7D or 8D pipe bend.

Steel pipe elbow radius: R=1D or R=1.5D or 2D. Below 1.5D is short radius elbow, and more than 1.5D but not over 2D is long radius elbow.

  • Different of manufacturing processes

Bend: Could be bend directly from a finished pipe with cold bending processes, to different degrees.

Elbow: Shall be made according by standard manufacture procedures, with hot finishing or hot bending, to a certain degree, 45°, 90° or 180°.
