How Should the Elbow Be Installed?

Jul. 29, 2020

As we all know, the stainless steel thread elbow 90° is an important part of the piping system. Elbows are similar to elbows, but there are some differences. The main function of the elbow is to connect two pipes of the same diameter, thereby changing the direction of the pipe. There are many materials for making elbows, usually stainless steel, alloy steel, or carbon steel.

Of course, there are some elbows of other materials, but there are relatively few elbows of other materials, and there are many types of elbows. According to the production process of the elbow, the elbow can be divided into welding elbow and stamping elbow. The most common angles of elbows are 45 degrees and 90 degrees. Of course, there are also 180-degree elbows. In the actual pipeline construction process, elbows are widely used in chemical, water supply, petroleum, and other industries.

To better use the elbow, you need to master the installation skills of the elbow, so as to give full play to the role of the elbow in the pipe connection. Therefore, when installing the elbow, you must pay attention to the installation skills of the elbow. Improper, the medium in the pipeline will flow out, affecting the entire production process and causing certain economic losses, but what should be paid attention to when installing the elbow?

1. Keep the elbow clean and tidy, and store it properly. The stainless steel elbows that have been stored for a long time should be checked regularly, and they should be kept clean when they are in contact with the working surface, and then stored neatly in dry indoor ventilation. Do not stack or store in the open air. Keep stainless steel elbows dry and ventilated.

Be prepared before installation. Be sure to carefully check the various standards of the stainless steel elbow before installation, such as whether the diameter of the elbow meets the requirements, this is still a problem during transportation, such as damage, if there is a problem with the elbow, please eliminate the problem before completing the installation.

2. During installation, the stainless steel elbow can be installed directly in the pipeline according to the use position. In this case, it can be installed anywhere in the pipeline. To facilitate the operation and maintenance of the elbow, please note that the stainless steel elbow can only For horizontal installation, attention should be paid to the sealing of the stainless steel elbow during installation to avoid leakage due to poor sealing and affecting the normal operation of the pipeline.

3. The bolts of the elbow valve packing cover should be evenly tightened to avoid accidental collision with the operator, hindering the movement of the valve stem or causing leakage.

The ball valve is connected to the elbow, and the gate valve is only fully opened or fully closed, so flow adjustment is not allowed. Therefore, the sealing surface is corroded and abrasion is increased. Prevent packing leakage.

4. The elbow should use a hand wheel, do not use levers or other management tools, so as not to damage the valve components. Close the handwheel clockwise, otherwise, open the handwheel and use it correctly to ensure correct operation.
