Well, the need for flanges usually occurs when the pipe stopped working or starting cause issues which affect the overall performance. For correcting the error, the need for blind flanges occurs. However, these flanges are handy and there are lots of options in a market where you can buy such flanges very easily. The flanges are also used for tearing down the old pipeline or also for stopping it forever.
- Welding Neck flange: It is easy to recognize welding flanges as they come with the long tapered hub which goes from the pipe and fitting over the thickness of the wall. Such flanges are highly used in a reinforcement related application that includes evaluating the temperature and high pressure.
- Socket Weld Flange: Especially design for the pipe which requires small high-pressure size, the socket weld flanges is basically used for decrease the stress that occurs at the root of the weld. Such things happen when solidification like process had done.
- Lap Joint Flange: Unlike other Shaft Forgings, Lap joints have their own advantages such as it barely contact with the fluid which also decreases the issue of corrosion. It is also completely favorable for reuse purpose which helps in saving a lot of money and time.
- Stub end: This flange is largely used with Lap joint flange and for low-pressure work. Stun End is cheap and basically, uses for an application that is noncritical. Apart from this, stub end is also available in different type of shapes, dimensions and for different pipes. These flanges are light in weight and also resist corrosion
