A pipe bend is a curved section of a pipe used to change the direction of fluid flow. It is used in industrial and construction applications to route pipelines around obstacles or create more efficient piping layouts.
The weight of carbon steel bend is the total mass that a pipe requires to bend itself at a 90-degree angle.
Pipe Bend Weight Formula
The Pipe bend weight calculator uses the given formula
PBW is calculated in kgs
OD is the outside diameter of the pipe bend (in mm)
T is the wall thickness of the pipe bend (in mm)
R denotes the mean radius of bend (in mm)
How to Calculate Pipe Bend Weight?
To calculate the weight of a pipe bend accurately, you will need to know the outside diameter, wall thickness and mean radius of the pipe. All the measurements should be in millimeters.
You can now finally calculate the pipe bend weight using the formula given above:
