What is a pipe bender used for?A pipe bender is used to bend a range of piping but most commonly; plumbing and conduit (electrical) piping.
It is used to bend pipe in different directions and around obstacles instead of creating a fitting.
Bent tubing can be needed for instances such as: moving water and electrical pipes around obstacles (for example, light boxes, skirting boards and stairs).
It can also be used for making pipes for refrigerator connections.
Bent tubing is also used in motoring particularly for motorcycle exhausts and accessories.
Why use a bent pipe instead of a fitting?
There are a number of reasons why once you’ve got the hang of bending pipe it is much better than constantly using fittings.
Not only is it cheaper and quicker, but for water pipes it removes the risk of leaking joints, a problem that can arise with fittings.
Pipes are used to transfer liquids, gases, masses of small solids in various industrial applications. The production of these pipes involves various metal working tools. Pipe bending is the one of the preferred metal-forming process used to permanently form pipes or tubing. Pipe and tube benders are the tools used for the purpose of bending pipes and tubes during the metal-forming projects. These pipe benders tools are used to create roll cages, frames, gates, etc.
Hydraulic tube and pipe benders are utilized in automotive, chemical, and mechanical industries, or wherever heavy wall piping and tubing are required.
