EN 10253-2 Elbow

What is EN 10253-2 elbow?

Used to connect two pipes, they change the flow of media at a predetermined degree. Although the degree of the fitting can be changed, an EN 10253-2 Elbow is most easily available at 45 and 90 degrees.

What is the manufacturing process of EN 10253-2 type a elbow?

According to the specification, the steel used here is of the killed variety. Typically, the elbow is produced from plates, sheets or tubes (seamless or welded). If they are produced from sheets or plates, the elbows are welded after being bent and formed to the desired state. When tubes are used to produce an En 10253-2 Type A Elbow, dies help shape and form the product. This process calls for the simultaneous use of heat, and force (bending and shaping). After the products are formed, they are cleaned and heat treated in accordance with the specification.

Types of EN 10253-2 type b elbow based on connection with pipe

There are 4 types of fittings available based on their connection to a pipe including – buttweld, socket welded, threaded and flanged En 10253-2 Type B Elbow.

When would you use a BS EN 10253-2 long radius 90 deg elbow?

Referred to as quarter bends, these fittings change the direction of flow by 90 degrees to form a perpendicular pipeline. They make a quick turn and are useful as instrumentation devices or to control a process system. They are seen in sectors such as chemical processing, fluid power, electronic, petroleum, pulp & paper plants.

En 10253-2 elbow 2D Vs 3D and 5D

These refer to the bend radius bigger than the diameter of a pipe. A 5D bend means, the bend radius of an En 10253-2 Elbow is sized at 5 times its pipe’s nominal diameter. Similarly, the bend radii for both a 2D & 3D elbow would be 2 & 3 times its pipes ND respectively. Compared to the other two, a 5D bend offers a smoother performance during its change in the pipeline‚Äôs direction.

EN 10253-2 elbow 5D available in all ferrous and non-ferrous metals including stainless, carbon, alloy steel, aluminum & copper as per ASME B16.9

How do you find the right EN 10253-2 short radius 45 degree elbow?

The right fitting is often based on 3 parameters – cost, application type and temperature requirements. For environments that deal with very high temperatures, carbon steel is ideal to be used as fittings. If the requirement of an application is corrosion resistance, then using materials like stainless steel, monel, Inconel, Hastelloy etc, would be perfect. If an EN 10253-2 Short Radius 45 Degree Elbow needs to be cost-effective, alloy steel or carbon steel would be your best bet.

Difference between EN 10253-2 type a and type b elbow?

Both elbow types are intended to be used in applications covered under EU Directive 97/23/EC. The primary difference between them is their wall thickness. EN 10253-2 Type A elbows are produced with the same thickness throughout their body, including the welding, ends. The thickness of a Type B Elbow will have an increased wall thickness only at its body. From its pressure perspective, type B can withstand a higher pressure in comparison to type A elbows.
