Piping is an essential element in the construction industry and has universal applications, especially in petrochemical and energy projects. Since piping is such a crucial aspect, numerous techniques have evolved how pipes are fabricated, bent, and fitted. One such technique is induction bending.
What is High Frequency Induction Bending (HFIB)?
Induction bending employs the principle of induction to heat a pipe locally. As a result, the pipe has a narrow heat band. As the pipe is pushed by an accurate drive system in a heavy frame, the heated content is moulded into a curve in a narrow zone.
After that, the bent part is allowed to cool by water/air to form the bent shape. This process of bending is both automated and continuous.
Major Advantages of Induction Bending
Like other advanced techniques in piping, induction bending has certain advantages that are important to be mindful of some worthwhile advantages of this technique are:
In the case of this bending process, the subsequent fabrication process will be instant. In essence, there will be no need for you to remain dependent on elbows. Overall, the method is favourable and popularised for good reason.
Essential Applications of Induction Bending
Most of the induction bends are in pipeline systems used to transfer liquids and gases. They are also used in applications that require bends with larger diameters with accuracy and dependability as well as laminar smooth flow. Induction bends are commonly used in the following industries:
The Process of Induction Bending
Induction bending consists of several steps that are needed to be done with precision and care. The steps involved in this method are:
Induction bending is an advantageous technique involved in piping systems to make the project more economical and secure. Since induction bending has several applications in important projects related to petrochemical and energy, people must know about the value of this technique and how to implement it correctly.
