BW 90 Degree Elbow A234 WPB WPC
A234 WPB/WPC BW 90 degree elbows are carbon steel butt welded fittings.Elbows also have 45 degree.These elbows have similar functions,the only difference is the 90 degree elbow can changes the direction in 90 deg while the 45 degree elbow can changes in 45deg.
BW 90 degree elbow is a commonly used pipe fitting in many insductries.ASTM A234 WPB / WPC are both represent butt welded (BW) fittings in American Standard.WPB and WPC are different grade of butt welded fittings,among this,WPB is more chosen grade.
BW 90 degree ELBOW
BW 90 degree elbow is formed by hot forming and connects steel pipes or other pipe fittings through butt welding process. Its function is to change the direction of the fluid by 90 degrees, so it is also called vertical elbow.
There are two types of butt welded elbow：Long Radius(LR) and Short Radius(SR).
Long Radius Elbow
Long radius elbow refers to the pipe outer diameter with radius of curvature equal to 1.5 times, i.e R = 1.5D.
Short Radius Elbow
Short radius elbow means that its radius of curvature is equal to the outer diameter of the tube, i.e R = 1.0D.
- High tensile strength
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Resistance to oxidation
