Schedule 80 PVC 45 Ell's
The beauty of creating a piping system from scratch is the ability to determine exactly where flow will go. Since pipes don't bend, fittings allow for adjustments in the direction of a system. When a system needs to turn, ells, allow that to happen. These Schedule 80 PVC 45 ells turn flow in a 45-degree angle, so the system can move around obstacles or flow can be directed to a certain part of the building or landscape.
These PVC 45 ells are made from Schedule 80 PVC. This material is thicker than Schedule 40, so these fittings can withstand high temperatures and higher pressures than similar Schedule 40 fittings. This means they can be used in chemical mixing applications where high pressure and temperatures are common. Factories and laboratories often use these fittings. They can be found in agriculture, landscaping and home plumbing as well.
Schedule 80 PVC 45 ells are available with threaded or slip socket ends. Regardless of the end used, adhesives are often applied to strengthen the connection at these vulnerable joints. Some of the Schedule 80 PVC 45 ells are reinforced to provided added stability at the joint in a high-pressure system. Diameters for these fittings range from 1/4 to 12 inches.
