  The main difference between stainless steel elbow and carbon steel elbow lies in the difference of material.

  What are the characteristics of different two materials.

  Stainless steel elbows can be kept free of corrosion and rust for a long time. 45 °, 90 ° and 180 ° elbows can be produced according to standards.

  Carbon steel elbow is a metal pipe fitting that changes the direction of the pipeline on the carbon steel pipeline. The connection methods include screw thread and welding. According to the angle, there are three most commonly used elbows: 45 ° and 90 ° 180 °, and other abnormal angle elbows such as 60 ° are also included according to the needs of the project.

  In terms of material properties, stainless steel elbows will not have uniform corrosion like carbon steel elbows, and there is no need for protective coating during application; The strength of stainless steel elbow determines whether the water pipe is firm and collision resistant, which is an important requirement for the construction of water supply. Therefore, under the condition of being hit by external force, the possibility of leakage of stainless steel water pipe is very small.

  In terms of wear resistance, carbon steel elbow has its advantages and uses. Carbon steel elbow is a common connecting pipe fitting in pipeline installation, which is used for the connection at the bend of the pipeline. Carbon steel elbow can be favored by the market and continue to replace some traditional wear-resistant materials. The fundamental reason lies in its excellent product quality and in the comparison with traditional wear-resistant materials.

  Carbon steel has good wear resistance and toughness, simple production process and reasonable comprehensive economy. It is suitable under many conditions and is welcomed by users. This also makes the thick wall wear-resistant elbow more widely used and cheaper.
