Advantages of butt weld elbows:

  • Less material less cost

    Elbows connect pipes via butt welding. Compared to threaded elbows, they require 10%-75% less material

  • Less material less weight

    Total weight is also reduced for elbows

  • Powerful & tight

    No threaded connection cuts extra space, and adds an extra strong hold

  • Less frictional loss of energy

    Better total energy saving in flow and transfer
