3 inch pipe bend
Pipe bend is curved with a complete set of bending equipment, divided into two kinds of cold-simmer and hot-push process. No matter what kind of machinery and equipment and pipelines, most of them are used to bend pipes, mainly for oil, gas, infusion, engineering bridge construction.
According to its radius of curvature to divide: can be divided into long radius elbow and short radius elbow. The long radius elbow refers to the outer diameter of the pipe whose radius of curvature is equal to 1.5 times times that of the r=1.5D; short radius elbow refers to its radius of curvature equal to the pipe diameter, that is, r=1.0D. (d is the elbow diameter, R is the radius of curvature).
Specifications of 3 inch pipe bend:
Material: carbon steel or stainless steel
Size: 3 inch
Make methods: Push, press, forge, cast, etc.
Manufacturing standards: AMSE/ANSI,DIN
Connect method: Butt welding.
The long bending radius and tangent straight pipe length make the welding point less in a piping system, it will save the work and cost in the field. The most regular pipe bends are 30 degree, 45 degree, 90 degree, the bending radius are 3D, 5D, 7D, 10D, here the “D” means the nominal diameter of this bend.
