curva suave
Explanation:
o 'codo de radio amplio'

What type of bends - smooth radius/90 degrees etc? .
A: Smooth bends are better than elbows, because this will prevent possible blockages in the pipework. Either a copper pulled bend, or two 45° bends together (for plastic) is recommended.

----------------------------------------------------
Where a pulled bend in the pipe run exceeds an angle of 60 degrees or where a fitting is used and the angle is in excess of 45 degrees, then a custom fitting cover shall be manufactured from either tube or sheet insulation of at least the same thickness as the
incoming insulation. http://www.armaflex.com/www/armacell/ACwwwAttach.nsf/ansFile...$File/036-028-GB(WW).pdf
