Global Stainless Long Radius Stainless Steel Bends
The Global Stainless patented, double-curved, metal forming process provides a good alternative to traditional segmented bends. The company fabricates long sweeping bends up to 500 mm in diameter, which provides a good alternative to segmented bends, commonly known as ‘lobster back’ bends. Long radius bends are commonly used for production of milk powder, cheese, chocolate, wineries, breweries, powdered soap flakes and delicate food process conveying, such as the potato chip industry.
The long radius bends offer smoother quieter flow, less back pressure in the conveying of product, which results in less product damage. The other main advantage is that the weld seams on these bends run the length of the bend, as opposed to a segmented bend, so that there is an important self-cleaning advantage, as food product is not able to get trapped, allowing for good hygiene. The weld seams are high-quality, full-penetration, smooth food-grade welds.
The bends are uniformly finished by acid-dipping or polishing to the user’s specifications. The company can manufacture long radius bends from 5, 6, 8, 10, 12 inches through to 500 mm O.D. with thicknesses up to 3 mm, made from type 304 or 316 stainless steel. It also rolls stainless steel tube from 1- to 4-inch diameter down to a radius of 600 mm. Plastic rollers are used for the 4-inch tube, so no scuff marks are made on the tube during the rolling process.
Global Stainless has installed bends in many food and dairy factories throughout New Zealand, and is now exporting its bends.
