We proudly provide an extensive range of stainless bends, available in both seamless and welded versions. These variations cater to the diverse needs of our customers, offering different levels of strength, durability, and cost-effectiveness.
Seamless butt weld elbows are constructed directly from a single section of seamless pipe material. This is achieved by applying heat and pressure to the pipe, transforming it directly into an elbow.
Seamless fittings, as the name suggests, have no welded parts within their structure. This unique characteristic is often sought after in critical applications where the integrity of the material is paramount. Unlike their regular welded counterparts, which may have one, two, or even more welds based on their dimension, shape, and manufacturing method, seamless fittings pose less risk of weld yield and porosities due to their weld-free nature.
We typically recommend seamless fittings for all pipe requirements equal to or smaller than DN600. The benefits of opting for real seamless elbows are notable:
On the other hand, welded elbows are fabricated from separate segments of pipes, resulting in a much lower price point compared to seamless ones. Welded pipes are typically made from steel plates, ensuring that welded elbow fittings maintain a uniform wall thickness, except in the weld seam area.
Welded stainless bends are commonly used when pipe diameters are significantly large, and the costs associated with producing seamless bends from a single piece become prohibitively high.
In conclusion, whether you require the robustness and superior mechanical properties of seamless bends or the cost-effectiveness and flexibility of welded ones, we have the perfect solution to meet your specific needs in stainless bends.
