What is a 180 degree short radius elbow?

Category: 180 Degree Elbow

A 180 degree short radius elbow is a type of elbow that has a smaller radius than a standard 180 degree elbow. It has a radius equal to the diameter of the pipe, which makes it more compact and useful in tight spaces. However, the short radius design can cause greater resistance to flow and may result in increased pressure drop.
