It was on a hot water circulation line, and the rolled edge caused cavitation to orrur in the elbow, eroding it out. That was a new one for me....
I've also seen pex fittings blow off, iron and galvanized rot out..... so, they all have issues one way or another, lol.
They sure do all have their pluses and minuses. Had a 90 blow off on a circulation line? Like, a boiler with a whole 15psi on it or a high pressure boiler?

No, the 90 didn't come off, the elbow eroded out and it sprung a huge gushing leak.
It was on a hot water line, as in hot water, not cold. House was huge, so the hot lines ran a circulation pump back to the tank to keep hot water in them at all times. No waiting for hot water that way. Only had to travel from the already warm line up the wall to the fixture.

Gotcha. I read it as the elbow blew off because the pipe wasn't reamed out.. couldn't figure out why that would happen. Caused a pinhole leak from not reaming it out, yup.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
