Compression Fitting elbows are a type of plumbing connection used to change the direction of a pipe while maintaining a secure and leak-resistant connection. They are particularly useful when there is a need to navigate around obstacles, make turns, or connect pipes at angles. Compression fitting elbows are part of the family of compression fittings and share the same basic design principles, utilizing a ferrule and compression nut to create a tight seal. Here are some important points about compression fitting elbows:

Design and Function:

  1. Ferrule and Compression Nut:Like other compression fittings, compression fitting elbows consist of a ferrule (compression ring) and a compression nut. The ferrule is positioned over the pipe where it interfaces with the fitting, and the compression nut is threaded onto the fitting.
  2. Sealing Process:When the compression nut is tightened onto the fitting, it compresses the ferrule against the pipe. This compression creates a watertight seal that prevents leaks.
  3. Elbow Design:Compression fitting elbows are designed to change the direction of the pipe at a specific angle, commonly 90 degrees or 45 degrees. The fitting’s internal design accommodates the bend without compromising the sealing mechanism.
  4. Materials:Compression fitting elbows manufactured by Conex Metals are available in Brass and Stainless Steel. The material choice depends on factors like the type of fluid being transported, compatibility with the piping material, and the system’s pressure and temperature conditions.


Compression fitting elbows find applications in various plumbing and fluid systems, including:

  • Water Supply Lines:They are used to navigate around obstacles, corners, or tight spaces in water supply systems.
  • Gas Lines:Compression fitting elbows are used in gas piping systems, providing a secure and reliable connection while changing the direction of the gas flow.
  • HVAC Systems:In heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, they are used to route pipes around structural elements or other components.
  • Irrigation Systems:Compression fitting elbows are used in irrigation systems to adjust the direction of water flow around landscape features.


  • No Special Tools:Unlike soldering or welding, no special tools are required for installation. Only a wrench is needed to tighten the compression nut.
  • Leak Resistance:Compression fittings provide a reliable and leak-resistant connection when properly installed.
  • Reusability:Similar to other compression fittings, compression fitting elbows can be disassembled and reassembled multiple times without compromising the seal, which can be useful for adjustments or repairs.

Compression fitting elbows provide a flexible and effective solution for changing the direction of pipes in various plumbing and fluid systems. Proper installation and adherence to best practices are crucial to achieving leak-free and reliable connections.
