A flange is an external rim that is used for strength. They are used on rails to prevent them from wearing out easily and to keep the wheels in motion.
‘Industrial stainless steel flanges’ (Also known as ‘หน้าแปลนเหล็กสแตนเลสอุตสาหกรรม’ in the Thai language) are mainly used to connect pipes, pumps, sheets and various other types of structures that require intermediate connecting points.
As with other mechanical equipment, stainless steel flanges are also available in various types to meet diverse needs. Several types are described below:
Weld Neck Flanges: Flanges type are those attached to the neck of the pipe. Welded flange thickness in the manner similar to the dimensions of the pipe is connected to. Flanges are typically used for high-pressure applications.
Socket Weld Flange: Socket weld flanges are those that are used as a shoulder to the pipe to rest on. They consist of outer holes used to insert the pipe.
The thickness Flange: The flange is used to join different segments of the pressure vessel. The size and design depending on the specifications of the vessel that is used to connect.
Lap Joints: Types of flanges used in applications that require dismantling regularly. It is welded to the end of the stub and can be rotated freely.
Ring Joint: This joint is attached to the pipe without welding. They usually have a raised surface with the engine ring outlet into it.
stainless steel flanges are available in various sizes and grades like F 304, 304L, 304H, 309S, 309H, 310S, 310H, 316, 316Ti, 316H, 316L, 316LN etc. These values represent the standard attributes of steel required to comply.
