How to choose steel elbow

To effectively reroute liquid transmissions, piping elbows are commonly employed. Many material formations, dimensions, and finishes are available in this vein, including stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum and PVC. Additionally, those selecting stainless steel can discover a range of gradations and wall densities to best meet their needs.

An essential element in deciding which steel elbow is ideal for your needs is the material with which it will be used. Two variations of steel elbow are accessible: welded and seamless. If you require a strong, durable solution with an impressive pressure rating, then opt for a seamless steel elbow. Although they are more expensive than welded elbows, the additional cost may be worthwhile since they don’t have an outwardly visible seam.

When selecting a steel elbow, make sure to check the size. From miniature 1/2 inch elbows to massive 72 inchers, the size you choose will have an effect on the flow rate and pressure capacity. Most often, the right size is 2 inches, 3 inches, or 4 inches.

Steel elbows are offered in varying finishes, so there are multiple options to consider. Black oxide finish is the most economical of the bunch, and is best for applications that won’t be exposed to corrosive elements. Galvanizing an elbow costs more, however it’s extra protection against rust makes it worth the investment. To give extreme durability, a stainless steel finish should be considered; this finish may be more costly but has a superior corrosion rating and highest capacity for enduring pressure.
