Elbow; they are stainless fitting elements that enable pipes and therefore fluids (heat, gas or other products) to rotate in different directions, especially in pipelines, at different angles. Stainless elbow is one of the most used materials in pipelines.
Elbows are angled and generally used as 90° angles. Also, 22.5°, 30°, 45° angled ones are also used.
The ends of sanitary elbows can be machined for butt welding, threaded or socketed. When the sizes of the ends are different, it is known as the reduction elbow, which connects two pipes of different diameters and also provides a change of direction.
Hygienic Elbows; It is produced from stainless steel, is generally used in the food and pharmaceutical industries to prevent bacterial growth and is produced as resistant to high pressure. A Sanitary Elbow is a type of sanitary fitting that is mounted between two lengths of pipe or tube to allow for a change of direction.
Types of Hygienic Elbow
Where are sanitary elbows used?
Sanitary are special plumbing components used in hygienic applications in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries where hygiene is important. It is designed to maintain cleanliness, prevent contamination, and promote health and safety.
At the same time, sanitary elbows can be used safely in all kinds of hygienic environments as they do not provide an environment for the reproduction of organisms such as germs, rust and bacteria.
The most important feature of hygienic elbows is that they are hygienic. These fittings are manufactured from non-toxic, corrosion-resistant materials for use in industries that demand “food-grade” cleanliness, ensuring zero contamination of the surrounding environment. Sanitary elbows are typically made of 304 or 316 grade stainless steel to provide a sterile and wear-free surface.
