To fix pipes between themselves and with the use of hardware, a flange is most often used. It is quite versatile, it perfectly copes with pipes of various diameters. Quality aisi 304 flat flange is able to resist all negative operating factors. Including high pressure in the pipe line.
Main area of operation
Pipe lines for the transfer of liquid and gaseous media are used everywhere. The simplest and most effective way to connect individual pipe sections is to use a welded flange. Made of stainless steel, it will not be a weak element in the highway. Perfect for the following areas:
- Agriculture, including farmland.
- Public utilities for laying water supply and sewerage.
- The most diverse mechanical engineering and assembly of mechanisms.
- Oil and chemical industry, mining.
- Pharmaceuticals, plants for the processing of specific raw materials.
Flanged mounting on large diameter pipe lines proved to be especially effective. It is enough to weld the flange with high quality, to ensure the connection with a reliable sealing gasket, so that the subsequent operation of the pipe does not require maintenance.
Flange mounting feature
Despite the approximately identical appearance of the mount, they have technical features. This feature allows you to use flanges more competently, under certain operating conditions. Including resist depressurization with a sharp increase in pressure inside the pipeline. According to the method of fastening, the devices are divided into the following groups:
- with threaded shank;
- free placement on the welded part;
- frequently used, collar;
- internal threading on the flange;
- classic, flat welded.
Unlike classic steel, which is subject to corrosion and other negative operating factors, stainless steel flanges are more practical. The increased cost is fully compensated by the absence of emergency situations on the pipeline. Durable stainless steel flanges, as a quality standard, are used in where the alternative is unacceptable. A wide range of products will allow you to choose exactly those fasteners that are best suited for physical parameters.
