spectacle blind flanges
Separating one part of a line from another requires a spectacle blind, able to switch from closed to open and back again. Bleed rings provide a means to release pressure from the pipe through a controlled opening.

Can be attached to the pipe without welding (sometimes an additional seal weld is used as well)
Ideal for higher pressure and temperature applications for small pipe sizes
Not recommended for larger loads, especially when subjected to higher torque
Uses of threaded flanges:
Threaded flanges can be fitted to pipes of various sizes without welding and this is one chief benefit for which these flanges are highly demanded.
They can be used in extremely high pressure applications, particularly at or near atmospheric temperature, where the necessary post weld heat treatment is not possible.
They are ideal for small diameter piping applications.
They are economical and time saving devices.
These threaded flanges are normally designed for non-cyclic applications.
The flanges are suitable to be used in applications where welding is hazardous.
They can be used in highly explosive areas.
