elbow fitting

Based on the context, I believe it is referring to an elbow fitting.

Fittings are used in pipe and plumbing systems to connect straight pipe or tubing sections, to adapt to different sizes or shapes, and to regulate fluid flow, ...

我对“借转角”的理解是用于借转的角。Fittings are used to turn corners.

Note added at 8 hrs (2010-12-27 20:38:41 GMT)

A pipe elbow is a fitting installed between two lengths of pipe or tube allowing a change of direction, usually in the 90° or 45° direction.

In this case, it is the fitting installed between the bell mouth (承口) and socket (插口).
