Global Stainless Long Radius BendsWe fabricate long sweeping bends manufactured to customer requirements up to 500mm in diameter which proves to be an excellent choice against segmented bends, or more commonly known as 'lobster back' bends. Long radius tube bending is popular in 5, 6 and 8 inch diameters, commonly used for milk powder, cheese, and chocolate factories, wineries, producers of powdered soap flakes and delicate food process conveying such as the potato chip industry.  

Global Stainless Long Radius BendsOur long radius bends (long radius elbows) offer smoother, quieter flow, less back pressure in the conveying, such as less wear in an abrasive product application, and provides less product damage. The other main advantage is that the weld seams on these bends run the length of the bend, so there is an important self cleaning advantage, and less food product is able to get trapped, allowing for superior hygiene.

Why choose long radius tube bending?

  • Smoother, quieter flow which heavily reduces the amount of product damage.

  • Less back pressure on conveying with less wear in an abrasive product application.

  • Our weld seams run the length of the product providing superior cleaning and hygiene, especially for food related industries.
