Schedule 80 CPVC ELLS
Schedule 80 CPVC elbows are a key piece of most CPVC piping systems. Available in sizes ranging from ¼” – 24”, these ell fittings have a 90 degree or 45 degree bend. Elbow fittings may come in socket (also known as slip) ends or with threaded ends. Schedule 80 CPVC is an excellent choice for hot and cold temperature industrial applications like chemical processing and water treatment. CPVC is known for its relatively high temperature rating of 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Unlike some types of CPVC piping, Schedule 80 CPVC is IPS size, the same sizing system as standard PVC pipe. CPVC elbows are important for creating turns and bends in a pipe line. This is useful for maneuvering around obstacles or changing directions. Sch 80 CPVC elbows require solvent cement for proper installation. Alternatively, some elbows come with threaded ends for connection to another threaded fitting or threaded pipe. All our Sch 80 CPVC fittings feature NPT threaded ends for compatibility with standard NPT threaded valves and accessories.
Depending on the application, one may choose to use 90 degree elbows or 45 degree elbows, or both throughout their piping system. As the name implies, Schedule 80 CPVC 45 degree elbow fittings have two connections ends situated 45 degrees apart. This offers a less severe bend than the standard 90 degree ells. Elbows with even smaller degree bends are also available.Commonly, Schedule 80 CPVC pipe and fittings are made with a light gray color to distinguish them from similar PVC products and other materials. Like PVC, CPVC is a lightweight and cost effective option for liquid handling uses. It is easy to find, relatively inexpensive to ship, and extremely durable. Schedule 80 CPVC also possesses excellent corrosion resistant properties and chemical compatibility.
