What is the length of the PVC pipe elbow?

In the piping system, the elbow is a pipe that changes the direction of the pipe. According to the angle, there are three most commonly used 45°、90° and 180°. In addition, according to the engineering needs, other abnormal angle elbows such as 60° are included. What is the length of the PVC pipe elbow?



The specifications of pvc pipe elbow are: 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 90mm, 110mm, 125mm, 160mm, 200mm, 250mm, 315mm, 400mm, 500mm, most PVC pipe specifications have a certain gap, this is normal The length of the PVC-U pipe is generally 4m or 6m, and other lengths are determined after negotiation between the supplier and the buyer.



There are many different specifications of the pvc pipe elbow, and the elbows of different angles are also very different in size. The pvc drain elbow size is generally 450*450pix, while the larger elbow size is 630*500pix. Of course, the specific problem needs specific analysis. The 90 degree elbow size is generally calculated according to the diameter of a known pipe, and the bending radius is often taken to be 1.5 times the diameter. Depending on the model, the 90 degree elbow size is different, and its length are also different.

In addition, if you have not used PVC pipes before, or are unfamiliar with the dimensions of PVC pipes, we strongly recommend that you review the following three important details about the size of PVC pipes:

1.The outer diameter is not the size of the PVC pipe.

2.PVC plan is very important

3.Some pipes are not compatible

The outer diameter is not the size of the PVC pipe.

You should always use the inside diameter of the tube to determine the size of your PVC tube. If you measure the outside diameter of a PVC pipe and order it based on this measurement, you will almost always receive a larger PVC size than expected. Do not order PVC products based on the outside diameter.

PVC schedule is very important

The PVC Schedule (abbreviated as SCH or Sch.) is the thickness of the PVC pipe wall. The most common schedule is 40, but Schedule 80 PVC can also be used. As the schedule becomes larger and larger, the pipe wall becomes thicker from the outside, so the inner hole (hole) of the pipe becomes smaller.

In order to get the correct PVC size guide, carefully read the markings on the pipe and measure the physical dimensions of the pipe. Compare with other objects if necessary.

Some pipes are not compatible

Not all types of pipes are suitable for PVC fittings. For example, the outer diameter of steel pipes and pipes is the same size as the corresponding PVC pipe and is dimensionally compatible, but it is not recommended for use with PVC fittings and fittings because it is not possible to connect the steel pipe to Plastic PVC joints. In most cases, the steel pipe can easily slip out of the fitting, causing the structure to loosen or possibly collapse.

More size customization requirements are welcome to inquire.
