Solder Ring Obtuse Elbow
Solder Ring Obtuse Elbow also know as 45 degree elbow and 135 degree elbows are pre-soldered capillary connectors used in plumbing and are ideal when fitting pipes at an offset angle.
To obtain perfect joints, the inside of the fitting and the outside of the copper pipe are cleaned using coarse steel wool, flux paste is applied, the pipe is inserted into the fitting and heat applied from a portable propane torch until a ring of solder shows at the edges of the fitting. To obtain a durable joint, water must not be poured on the solder joint to cool it. Fittings are now made with lead-free solder.
The fittings come in a great variety of configurations, such as Tee-pieces, straight couplers, elbows or bends, reducers (to join pipes of different diameters), stop-ends, and there are versions with screw threads (male or female) at one end to fit taps and galvanised iron pipes.
This is a simple and cost effective method of jointing copper tubes to EN 1057.
Suitable for use above ground and on hot or cold domestic and commercial systems.
