- Each tool bends up to 180 degrees and large radius bends are ideal for preventing smooth inside walls from cracking, flaking and generating particulate contamination.
- The open side slips over the tubing at any point. You get smooth long bends with no marking, scraping or flattening.
- No need to figure spring-back – it’s been done for you.
In the mid 1980's a well known semi-conductor fabrication facility in silicon valley was experiencing a 40% rejection rate of their chips due to particulate contamination in their process piping caused by bending tubing with standard radius tubing benders.
A contractor installing the process lines was asked if he could come up with a solution to the problem. After a couple of years of trial and error, the KBS Long-Radius Tubing Bender was invented and reduced the rejection rate from 40% to less than 10%. For a number of years now, KBS Long-Radius Tubing Benders have been required by all chip plants for contractors installing high-purity process piping.
