Weld Neck Flanges — Dimensions, Grades & Applications
What Is Weld Neck Flange?
As the name recommends, this flange is appended to the pipe by welding neck of flange. This aides in exchanging worry from the flange to the pipe, making it appropriate for high pressure weight applications. The internal width of this pipe flange is made by the pipe’s size.
Weld neck flange is not the same as different sorts of flange as far as having a long tapered hub point and smooth move of thickness in the area of the butt weld interfacing them to the pipe. The long tapered hub point of the weld neck flange gives a critical support of the flange appropriate from the perspective of energy and imperviousness to pressure weight and dishing. The smooth move from the flange thickness to the thickness of pipe wall affected by the taper is very valuable under circumstances of rehashed twisting, bending happen because of line development or other variable strengths, and creates a durable energy of welding neck flange congregations equivalent to that of a butt welded joint among popes, which, in useful way, is indistinguishable as that of an unwelded pipe.
Along these lines, this kind of flange is more reasonable for the majority of the extraordinary administration conditions, regardless of whether this outcomes from hoisted temperature or high weight pressure, and whether stacking circumstances are essentially steady or change between expansive points of confinement; welding flanges are particularly proposed for overseeing explosives, exorbitant and combustible or flammable fluids, where local disappointment or loss of solidness can be come about after a lamentable result or occasion.
Dimensions of weld neck flanges
To the extent the sizes for these flanges are concerned, every one of these flanges are accessible in the market in conveyed measure, going from ¼'’ to any size. On the off chance that we discuss the wall thickness of these flanges, they are from schedule 5s to schedule XXS and are normally heavier.
Presently, how about we see the pressure weight appraisals or ratings and measurements of these flanges? The measurement is ANSI, MSS-SP-44, BS 3294, API 605 150lb to 2500 lb.
The confronting of these flanges is additionally of various styles, including raised faced, large tongue and groove, ring type joint, small tongue and groove, and etc. It is to be noticed that every one of these particulars are not simply standards, but rather can be adjusted and exceptionally presented in the case of any project where customization is required. We significantly stock flanges in standard sizes and materials. For particular needs, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
