warp / bend / ell


Explanation:
Verzug = warp (normally in Ernst and otherwise)
However, I am not happy with that one (unless you are).
A change in direction of a pipe is usually accomplished by an "ell"(Bogen / Ellbogen). That would be an element that is inserted; and it has an L-shape. If they have just bend the pipe (plastic / heating) or it is an indefinite angle, bend might be better.
