Pipe Elbow : Long Radius (LR) Elbow, Short Radius (SR) Elbow
Manufacturer/Exporter : India
Dimension Standards : ASME/ANSI B16.9, ANSI B16.28, MSS-SP-43
Angle : 90° Elbow, 45° Elbow, 180° Elbow

An elbow is a pipe fitting which is used as a connection point between two lengths of pipes to produce a change in the direction of flow in the pipe, usually at an angle of 90°, 45° or 180°. Elbows are also commonly referred as bends, and are available in a range of materials such as Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Alloy Steel, Nickel Alloys, Duplex, and Cupro Nickel.

Also known as 90° bends, 90° elbows are manufactured as SR (Short Radius) elbows and LR (Long Radius) elbows. 45° elbows are typically made as LR (Long Radius) elbows.

GiPL is a leading manufacturer and supplier of short radius and long radius elbows. The long radius elbows have a center to end distance that is 1.5 times the NPS in inches (R=1.5D), while the short radius is equal to the NPS in inches (R=1.0D). Short radius elbows are generally used in tight areas, and long radius elbows are used when space is available and flow is more critical. We can also manufacture and supply carbon steel elbows and stainless steel elbows in non-standard size angles such as 60°, 100°, 120° or 150°.

The ends may be machined for butt welding, it can be threaded (usually female) etc. When the two ends differ in size, the fitting is called a reducing elbow or reducer elbow.

We are a high quality manufacturer and supplier of long radius elbows, short radius elbows, stainless steel elbows, duplex elbows, and carbon steel elbows as well as fabricated stainless steel elbows. We supply our products to customers in various industries including Energy Sectors like Nuclear Power, Thermal Power, Hydel Power, Captive power plants, Oil & Gas Sectors, Refineries & Petrochemical Sectors, Fertilizers & Mineral Sectors, Mining & Construction, Steel Production Sectors, Shipbuilding, Paper manufacturing, Pharmaceutical plants and Pipeline Projects.
