Bend Pipe Bend Tubes Supplier

Bending radius less than or equal to 1.5 times of pipe diameter belongs to elbow, and bending radius greater than 1.5 times of pipe diameter belongs to elbow

Rated 4.6/5 based on 588 customer reviews

Steel pipe bend two pipes into a certain angle and connects them together to change the direction of the pipe.

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°.
