Bend 8" Schedule 40 with PVC Bendit

Posted by

One of our customers used our 20B to bend 8" Schedule 40 pipe to a 12 degree inside radius.  Mission accomplished in 75 minutes as the pipe was heated to 203 degrees.  The next unit will be heated a little longer to make bending easier.  

They first wrapped the pipe with fiberglass insulation to keep the heat in the pipe and they also used 4 pieces of aluminum flex duct and positioned the PVC Bendit in the middle to help the heat radiate outwards and help the pipe keep its form.  They used a Variac transformer to regulate the temperature.
