CPVC elbow fittings are plastic fittings that are used to connect two pipes at a specific angle. This is done to provide flexibility, reduce friction and turbulence in the plumbing systems.
CPVC stands for Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride which is a very strong and rigid polymer that withstands temperatures upto 93 Deg C.
CPVC elbows have another name, that is CPVC bend. Though the names are different, the function is the same. These are made using the injection molding process.
Different varieties of CPVC Pipe elbows are available depending on the size of the pipes and the angle they need to be joined at.
They require solvent cement to make a joint with the pipe and these joints are highly reliable and leak proof.
The most common type of CPVC elbows are 90 degree elbows. These elbows, when connect two pipes, form an angle of 90 degrees. This is one of the most commonly used fitting and are used in all the kinds of plumbing systems.
Elbows are also available in reducing type also known as CPVC reducing elbows which connect a pipe of higher size with one of smaller size.
Another type of CPVC bends are 45 degree elbow. These elbows connect two pipes at an angle of 45 degrees. These elbows cause much lower turbulence and friction in the flow as compared to the 90 degree elbows.
CPVC elbow fittings generally have female threads which are screwed with the male threads on the bathroom fittings. The threads may be all plastic or might be made up of brass and manufactured using a process known as insert molding. Elbows with brass threads are also called brass threaded elbow.
