What is a Pipe Flange?



Yarong Fitting supplies a wide range of pipe flanges in carbon steel, stainless steel, and also nickel alloy. We can also supply unique flanges such as weld neck pipe flanges, unique product demand as well as high-yield piping flanges.


Steel pipeline flanges are offered in a range of designs and pressure courses. In enhancement to defining pressure course, specific flanges such as weld neck pipe flange & socket weld flange also call for defining the pipeline schedule.


A pipeline flange attaches piping as well as parts in a piping system by the usage of bolted gaskets as well as links. This kind of link in a pipeline flange enables for convenience of disassembly as well as splitting up for repair work and also routine upkeep.


Pipeline Flange Material



The threaded flange is also called screwed flange or screwed-on flange. Spectacle and also line blind flanges are comparable to a blind flange yet various since they fit in between 2 flanges. The flange that makes up the orifice flange is typically a welding neck flange.



Carbon Steel Flange A105


This standard cover forged carbon steel piping parts for ambient- as well as a higher-temperature solution in pressure systems. Flanges are purchased either to dimensions defined by the buyer or to dimensional specs such as ASME 16.5 and also API 6A. Forgings made to ASTM A105 are usually restricted to an optimal weight of 10,000 lbs.


A pipeline flange attaches piping and also elements in a piping system by the usage of bolted gaskets and also links. This kind of link in a pipeline flange permits for simplicity of disassembly as well as splitting up for repair work and also routine upkeep. Pressure vessels as well as pipelines for numerous procedures.


Stainless-steel Flange - 316/316L (UNS S31600/S31603)


Kind 316 is a molybdenum steel handling boosted resistance to matching by services having chlorides as well as various other halides. Additionally, it gives outstanding tensile, slips, as well as stress-rupture toughness at raised temperature levels. Kind 316 is readily available in reduced carbon (316L) as well as high carbon (316H) alloys.


Specifications


ASTM: A312, A376, A358, A269, A249, A403, A182, A351, A479, A276 

ASME: SA312, SA376, SA358, SA269, SA249, SA182, SA276, SA403, SA479, SA351 


Steel Pipe Flange Types


As typical as it may appear to several individuals, a whole lot of consumers ask what is a flange? Trupply has actually produced a presentation video clip to describe various kinds of flanges, its functions as well as exactly how they are utilized on the pipeline.

In enhancement to defining pressure course, particular flanges such as weld neck flange & socket weld flange additionally call for defining the pipeline routine. These flanges are likewise recognized as ANSI Flange or ASME B16.5 Flange.

Weld Neck Pipe Flange

A weld neck flange should define the pipeline timetable for the birthed. These flanges are additionally understood as ANSI Flange or ASME B16.5 Flange.

Threaded Flange

The threaded flange is likewise called screwed flange or screwed-on flange. This sort of flange is made use of where welding is not an alternative. The threaded flange is most frequently made use of on low-pressure applications and also smaller sized pipelines (approximately 4" nominal).

Slip-On Pipe Flange

A slip-on flange is developed to slide over the end of the pipeline. Both the within and also exterior of the pipeline is bonded on the slip on flange. These flanges are likewise understood as ANSI Flange or ASME B16.5 Flange.

Lap Joint Flange

Lap joint flange also named Van Stone Flange. In a lap joint flange, the flange itself is not in call with the liquid. Individuals perplex lap joint flange with slip-on flange as they look extremely comparable with the exemption that lap joint flange has rounded sides on the behind and also a level face.

Blind Pipe Flange

A blind flange is a strong flange without any birthed or threaded opening and also is utilized to shut completion of the pipeline, installations, valves, or devices. Blind pipeline flange is likewise made use of for pressure testing devices. Blind flange comes both as an increased face as well as the level face.

Spectacle Blind Flange

Spectacle as well as line blind flanges are comparable to a blind flange however vary due to the fact that they fit in between 2 flanges. One the side of a spectacle blind is totally shut for total circulation closed off, whereas the various other end is open for complete circulation.

Orifice Flange

Orifice flange is a unique flange and also is constantly utilized in sets. Orifice flanges are pre-drilled with touched openings made in the flange edges to suit the metering pipeline. The flange that makes up the orifice flange is typically a welding neck flange.


Pipe Flange Dimensions


The weblink listed below offers flange dimensions for 150 #, 300 # as well as 600 # flanges.


Yarong fitting produces Korean standard (KS), Japanese standard (JIS), American Standard (ANSI), German standard and English standard of the high and medium voltage of various specifications of steel, stainless steel, alloy steel elbow, three, different diameter pipe, pipe cap, elbow, flange, socket series pipeline component production more than 5000 tons of goods, inventory.
