BW 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.A234 WPB is the American standard, which stands for carbon steel butt welded pipe fittings.

 

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.
