Special Pressing of a Chrome-Moly Elbow for the Oil Refining Industry

Two Elbow Single Elbow Steel Elbow


Special PressingConrex Steel, a leader in the custom fabrication of large steel products, was contracted by a customer to produce a smooth flow elbow that would be integrated into their process. A mitred elbow would not be suitable in this application; we determined that the best route would be to fabricate a segmental flow elbow instead. We applied special pressing capabilities to create the segmental construction necessary to produce these parts as required.

These elbows would need to fit a Cr-Mo pipe with a nonstandard diameter. Made from normalized and tempered SA387-11-2, the 90-deg elbows were 1" thick, had a 56" I.D., and a bend radius of 84". There were five segments making up the final unit. Each segment was formed, trimmed, bevelled, fitted, and tacked to ensure that the elbow would function properly. The segments were assembled into the final elbow piece and shipped to the customer's facility. To learn more about this steel fabrication project, feel free to contact Conrex Steel.
