A flange is a connection technique for pipes, valves, pumps, and other equipment materials to construct a pipeline system. It also enables easy washing, examination, and modification. Flanges are usually joined via welding or screwing. Flanged joints are made by bolting two flanges together and sealing the gap with a gasket.
Stainless Steel flanges come in a variety of materials and grades. Flanges can be made out of a variety of different materials. The most generally used materials for SS flange fabrication include carbon steel, high yield carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, duplex, and super duplex steel, and various nickel alloy grades such as Inconel, Incoloy, Hastelloy, and Monel.
Sulfuric hydrochloric, acetic, formic, and tartaric acids, as well as acid sulfates and alkaline chlorides, are all resistant to corrosion in stainless steel 316L Flanges. Exhaust manifolds, heat exchangers, cryogenic pipes, valve, and pump trims, and other applications include chemical and petrochemical operations, the pulp and paper industry, and the food sector.
Stainless Steel 316L Blind Flanges are available in a range of styles and are resistant to corrosive materials. SS Lap Joint Flanges are used to link a pipe to a recessed region of valves, fittings, and flanges.
316L stainless steel flanges have a lower carbon content than 316 stainless steel flanges. These flanges are in charge of reducing carbide precipitation’s catastrophic effects. ASME SA182 316L Socket Weld Stainless Steel Flanges offer better creep resistance, may be used in corrosive situations, and have superior welded joints.
Corrosion resistance between granules in sub-zero temperatures, stainless steel 316L Threaded Flanges are as robust as nails, allowing them to be employed in the petroleum industry. The creep rupture strength of these flanges is very strong.
To connect small bore pipes, Stainless Steel 316L Lap joint Flange is utilized as a projection of a wedding effect on the pipes. These flanges come in a wide range of diameters, thicknesses, and pressure ratings, among other features.
Weld Neck flanges made of stainless steel 316L are typically used to reduce the curve from a larger pipe to a smaller pipe, resulting in higher pressure than before the run.
Slip-on flanges made of stainless steel 316L are well-known for their low material costs and ease of installation. You can choose from a variety of diameters and low-pressure variants. Unlike welding neck flanges, this flange does not have a neck to rest on the pipe, necessitating double welding.
