As the mainstay of our business, we are dedicated to providing our customers with all possible options of flanges in a wide variety of steel, chrome, and nickel alloys.
Pipe Flanges are widely used as a popular category of pipe fittings. A flange is used to mechanically connect two pipes together. It can also be used to mechanically connect a pipe to a tee, valve, choke or any other piece of equipment. Flanges are available in round, square, and rectangular shapes. In some cases, flanges are usually in the shape of a ring or a plate to form a rim at the end of a pipe when fastened to the pipe. This is an example of closet flange.
A flange can also be a plate for covering or closing the end of a pipe. This is a blind flange. Thus, flanges are considered to be projecting or internal components which are used to support mechanical parts. They are like rims which are used to strengthen the mechanical part or they are a means of attaching that part to another part or surface.
Uses of pipe flanges:
Flanges are used for variety of purposes. The main purpose is to connect pipes but they are also used for connecting other equipments. Flanges are fit to a variety of other components besides pipes. They are fitted to bellows, ducts, wheels, and cameras. We give below the various uses of pipe flanges:
Flanges are also placed on beams to provide additional strength.
They prevent the beam from failing.
They are used for guide, as the flange of a train wheel.
Flanges are used for attachment to another object like for example, the flange on the end of a pipe, steam cylinder, etc.
They are fixed on the lens mount of a camera.
A flanged rail is a type of rail with a flange on one side to keep wheels from running off.
