BW Elbow Alloy Steel Pipe Fittings
BW elbow is the most used elbows in all the type of elbows.There are types of elbows:BW (butt welded),SW (socket welded) and THD (threaded).Alloy steel pipe fittings are popular because the material is similar to carbon steel and its material can satisfy different demands.
BW elbow always popular in pipe system as it can change the direction for the pipes.BW elbow can be manufactured from alloy steel.Alloy steel pipe fittings have excellent funcations.
BW (Butt Welded) 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.Shanghai Zhucheng Pipe Fittings Manufacturing Co Ltd is an experienced manufacturer who supply high qualify alloy steel pipe fittings for years.
The end of Butt welded fittings are connected to the pipe system by butt welding.Butt weld fittings provide permanent leak-proof performance.BW fittings could made from seamless or welded pipe,and then through several processes formed to get the shape of pipe fittings.
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.
