Pipe Bender Applications
Tips: Can a manual pipe bender be used for square or rectangular pipes, or is it only suitable for round pipes?
A manual pipe bender is typically designed for bending round pipes and tubes. The bending dies or shoes that come with a manual pipe bender are usually rounded in shape to accommodate the curvature of round pipes. Therefore, using a manual pipe bender directly on square or rectangular pipes may not yield satisfactory results.
However, there are certain manual pipe benders available in the market that come with specialized attachments or accessories specifically designed for bending square or rectangular pipes. These attachments can provide the necessary support and shaping to bend square or rectangular pipes with a manual pipe bender.
Alternatively, for bending square or rectangular pipes, it is more common to use a dedicated pipe bender specifically designed for those shapes. These dedicated pipe benders often have different types of bending die or shoes that can properly shape square or rectangular pipes without damaging or distorting them.
It's important to note that the compatibility of a manual pipe bender with square or rectangular pipes may vary depending on the specific model and manufacturer. Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions and recommendations to ensure you are using the manual pipe bender correctly and with the appropriate pipes.
