This is a highly abrasion resistant elbow design. The Hammertek elbow virtually eliminates elbow wear. Due to the patented design, your product changes direction by deflection rather than impact with the wall in a standard bend. This is a highly abrasion resistant elbow design.
The Smart Elbow provides long-wearing protection from elbow failure in pneumatic and hydraulic conveying systems.
The Smart Elbow for pneumatic and slurry conveying systems virtually eliminates elbow wear, product degradation, plugging, surging, cross-contamination, noise, turbulence, etc. Due to patented design, your product changes direction by deflection rather than impact with the elbow walls and/or pipe walls.
The Smart Elbow protects against wear and leakage in pneumatic applications better than any other elbow type. Its tremendous long-wearing properties eliminate repair costs in terms of materials and labor, as well as costs relating to compliance with an EPA clean-up/material disposal regulations.
Combining superior design with a selection of alloys, the Smart Elbow can withstand virtually any conveying situation, especially when high technology coatings are used. Corrosives and abrasives can be conveyed safely, and will no longer cause leaks, costly downtime or the disposal problems which worn elbows inevitably create.
Smart Elbow interiors may be coated with several materials, including carbide-type coatings on elbows of 4” and larger internal diameters, and porcelain coatings on elbows of 1 1/2” to 16” internal diameters.
The Smart Elbow is offered in aluminum, cast iron, ductile, carbon steel, stainless steel 304 and 316, Hammerlast Series 400 and Hammerloy. These standard metallic compositions include a hardness range of 90 to 550 BHN. Special coatings that will withstand temperatures in the range of 1500o F are also available..
