8 Inch 90 Degree Mechanical Joint Connection Elbow, Ductile Iron Construction. This particular fitting is a 90 Degree Elbow Fitting for Ductile Iron Pipe applications that features Mechanical Joint connections. An elbow is an important fitting as it is used in order to connect two sections of iron pipes. The elbow has 8 inch nominal diameter connections on either side. Its connections on either end feature “mechanical joint” style connections which have machine drilled holes for proper installation. The mechanical joint utilizes a nut and bolt system, and depending on the size of the pipe, there will be more bolts required for a secure connection. This elbow fitting has a 90 degree angle to it, which allows you to change the direction of the piping network. Ductile Iron Pipe systems are most commonly used in the transportation of potable water.
