For production of large size seamed elbow pipe fittings, we usually place two steel plates into corresponding mold first, conduct compression forming with hydraulic machine and put these two pieces together through butt welding. One of the biggest advantage of the production process is that the caliber obtained is ranging from 6 to 100 inches and the largest wall thickness could be 100mm.
For miter elbow pipe fittings, where multiple pieces are welded together, the largest caliber we could provide is 160 inches. Or we could produce this kind of elbow according to customers’ design. During miter elbow production process, we will conduct compression forming directly if the raw steel plate is relatively thin. If the plate is thicker, heating will be required before forming. Once formed, the semi-finished pieces will be welded together by twos. Then X-ray films will be scanned on 100 percent of the butt weld to detect any possible defects. (In general, the X-ray films will be kept for 5 years or longer time if required.) If the welding is qualified, then heat treatment and surface treatment will be conducted subsequently.Production Process
