Elbow Reducer Purchase Precautions

by | May 29, 2024 | News

The Elbow Reducer is one of the chemical elbow pipes fittings.It is mainly used to connect two pipes of different diameters. It can reduce the pipe diameter, reduce the pipe diameter, and prevent excessive flow from damaging the pipe.

By reducing the pipe diameter, the elbow reducer can effectively control the flow and ensure the normal operation and safety of the pipeline system.

Characteristics and advantages of This pipe fitting:

1.Smooth internal and external surfaces, small resistance, and strong fluid flow capacity. Reduce the pressure loss of the pipeline and improve the working efficiency of the system.

2.Good corrosion resistance, suitable for the transportation of various media.

3.Fewer connection points, low installation and maintenance costs of the pipeline system.

4.Easily change the flow rate and flow direction of the fluid. Meetting the needs of special applications.

5.Good pressure resistance, able to withstand certain internal and external pressures.

6.Has good sealing performance.

Elbow Reducer

When choosing a reducer, you need to distinguish the following specifications:

1.Control caliber: DIN standard (DN10-DN150), 3A/IDF standard (1/2″-6″), ISO standard (Ф12.7-Ф152.4);

2.International industrial standards: DIN, ISO, SMS, 3A, IDF, etc.;

3.Product materials: stainless steel 304, 316, 316L;

4.According to the radius of curvature:
There are long radius elbow and short radius elbow.
Long radius elbow means that its radius of curvature is equal to 1.5 times the outer diameter of the pipe, that is, R=1.5D;
Short radius elbow means that its radius of curvature is equal to the outer diameter of the pipe, that is, R=1.0D.
(D is the diameter of the elbow, R is the radius of curvature).

5.Pressure level: Sch5s, Sch10s, Sch10, Sch20, Sch30, Sch40s, STD, Sch40, Sch60, Sch80s, XS; Sch80, SCH100, Sch120, Sch140, Sch160, XXS;
The most commonly used are STD and XS.

Reducers have two types: concentric reducers and eccentric reducers, suitable for different scenarios:

Elbow Reducer

Concentric reducer:

  1. The center lines of the inlet and outlet pipes are on the same line, the reduction is uniform, and there is no offset.
  2. The structure is simple, easy to manufacture and install.
  3. Suitable for most conventional pipeline systems.

Eccentric reducer:

  1. The center lines of the inlet and outlet do not overlap.
  2. It can control the flow direction of the fluid to a certain extent, suitable for specific application scenarios.
  3. Reduce the complexity and cost of the pipeline system, such as avoiding additional elbows or turning equipment.
