What is the goal of coating the steel with ceramic? Wear resistance, corrosion resistance, thermal insulation? Are you looking to coat the inside or outside of the elbow? The answer to these questions will help people give you a more appropriate answer.

A high energy thermal spray would probably do the best as you can apply a fair thickness. There are lots of "mixtures" that can be applied. Wear, resistance to shock, chipping, adhesion vary wildly with the different materials. If "plasma" is used, make sure that it is one with high energy capability.James Watts
