Benders for Rent

Piping can be made of metal materials like copper and stainless steel or plastic material like PVC. Regardless of the material, these piping options are each commonly used in construction projects, many of which require reshaping. Pipe benders are used to bend piping to form curves and angles. Along with pipe stands and supports, benders are essential for project work. United Rentals offers a variety of bender styles, including mechanical, electric, manual and hydraulic.

 

FAQs about Benders

Can you bend PVC pipe?

  • Yes, PVC pipe can be bent. Of course, this comes with specific instructions to ensure efficiency and to prevent damage to the piping. To ensure the best possible outcome, we recommend consulting with United Rentals specialists by contacting your local branch before getting started.

How do you bend PVC pipe?

  • PVC pipe can be bent after being exposed to a heating agent that shifts its composition from a state of inflexibility to a state of high malleability. With multiple possible approaches to pipe bending, it may be difficult to decide on the best one. You can find more guidance on pipe bending here.

Can I use PVC and metal piping in the same project?

  • Yes, PVC piping can be attached to metal piping. To do so requires knowledge of proper connecting and sealing techniques to ensure efficiency and safety. For the best outcome, be sure to consult with our specialists for support.

FAQs

How to Choose the Right Bender to Rent

Expand the sections below for information on choosing the right bender for your next project.

What’s the difference between benders used on pipes, tubes and conduits?

The difference is the material being cut. Rent a pipe bender to bend pipes, which are round and rigid and have thicker walls than tubes. Rent a tube bender to bend tubes, which can take a variety of shapes and are often less rigid than pipe.

The two benders work the same way and can be used interchangeably except when you need to bend very large or very small pipes or tubes. To get an accurate bend, remember that pipes and tubes are not measured the same way. Pipe is measured by the inside diameter. Tube is measured by the outside diameter.

Rent a conduit bender to bend angles in conduit, the rigid or flexible tube made of metal or other materials that protects electrical wiring.

What are common types of pipe, tube and conduit benders?

The four main types of benders are manual, electric, hydraulic and mechanical. Pipe, tube and conduit benders can be driven by any of these mechanisms. For example, conduit benders are typically manual or mechanical, but powered models, such as this powered conduit bender, offer versatility and speed.

Manual bender

A manual bender, also known as a hand bender, is cheap, easy to use, easy to transport and suitable for many bending jobs, given enough elbow grease. Manual tube, pipe or conduit bending requires some skill, but it’s a good way to fabricate custom shapes. A lever tube bender lets you easily bend copper or aluminum conduit or tubes.

There are limits on what a manual bender can bend, with most models maxing out at 1.5-inch diameter pipe, tube or conduit.

Electric bender

An electric bender features an electric gear drive and is often programmable, making it ideal for quickly producing the same bends over and over. It is the best option for high-speed operations.

Hydraulic bender

A hydraulic bender is sturdy and powerful. It can create precise angles in pipes and tubes as large as 4 inches in diameter or in pipes with thicker walls. A hydraulic pipe bender rental can be used to craft handrails, vehicle chassis and roll cages and can be used in other automotive and mechanical applications. Electricians use hydraulic benders to bend rigid conduit or conduit that's too large for an electric bender.

Mechanical bender

A mechanical bender falls in between a hydraulic bender and a manual bender in terms of what it can bend. It relies on manual force, but a ratcheting mechanism increases the force you can apply. Most models can bend ½-inch to 2-inch piping or PVC conduit. (If you're using PVC conduit, you may want a bender with a heating component to soften the plastic.) Mechanical benders typically have wheels.
