Seamless. Flawless. Enormous.
Thanks to their optimum radius of r~1.5 d, the seamless bends have excellent hydraulic properties and offer a total of 31% less calculated pressure loss than segment-welded bends. Another impressive feature is that even the largest bend (90°, d 1000 mm) can be transported in a standard truck or shipping container, avoiding additional costs.
Potential areas of application for large bends are in pressure pipes (e.g. wastewater disposal, drinking water supply), in the energy sector (e.g. mining, cooling water piping) and in water treatment plants.
Thanks to the low-stress processing method, the seamless pressed pipe bends have very high dimensional accuracy. There is no need for additional brackets or similar stabilisers for transport and storage. With an angular tolerance of ±2°, SIMONA® Seamless Bends offer the best dimensional stability within the market – over the entire range.
