Lobster Back Bend

800NB steel water ‘S’ lobster back bend fitting.

The 800NB lobster back bend below are firstly cut into segments from steel pipe using pattern developments created through 3D Cad platform. These segments are tack welded together to form a “lobster back bend”. Once it has been dimensionally checked the bend is welded, tested and sent for coating.

Once complete the lobster back bend is coated with a DWI approved fusion bonded epoxy coating and lining and delivered to site ready for installation at a UK water industry site.
