copper tube elbow on pellet stove outlet

I have a pellet stove with 6 heat output tubes...I put a copper elbow into the far left (3/4") tube to divert the blowing air to the side (wife sits there)......is this going to be OK? I figure it is since the melting point of copper is WAY up there (1800+ F)...it seems to be working, but just want to make sure. Thanks

just an FYI all...the copper elbow has turned black! What a bonus as the stove is black!..it works great. I put one on each end vent to push air sideways, and the remaining 4 still blow straight out..had it on all day Sunday....a bag of pellets worth, and absolutely no issues....I used an elbow that reduces on one end (smaller male) and expands on the other...the male side fits snug in the opening which I believe are pretty standard 3/4". I just went to HD and kept checking on the stoves until I foudn one that would work..a little ingenuity would allow you to really experiment on different angles all over..
