Copper elbow is a plumbing fitting used to change the direction of a copper pipe in a plumbing system. Elbows are essential components in piping networks, allowing for the redirection of fluid flow around corners or obstacles.
Elbows have a 90-degree or 45-degree configuration, indicating the angle at which they redirect the flow of fluid. The most common type is the 90-degree elbow, which makes a right-angle turn in the pipe. Copper elbows typically have sockets or openings at both ends, allowing for the insertion of copper pipes. The joint is usually sealed using soldering techniques, where molten solder is applied to create a secure and watertight connection.
Elbows come in various sizes to accommodate different pipe diameters, and they may have long or short radius designs depending on the specific requirements of the plumbing system.
