Stainless steel flange is a kind of disc parts, in the pipeline engineering is the most common, stainless steel flanges are used in pairs.
In the pipeline engineering, stainless steel flange is mainly used for pipe connection. In connection with the need to connect the pipe, all kinds of installation of a piece of flange, low pressure pipe can use stainless steel wire to connect the flange, 4 kg more than the use of stainless steel welding flange. Two stainless steel flange plate with the sealing between the points, and then use the bolt fastening.
Different pressure stainless steel flanges have different thickness and different bolts. Pumps and valves, in connection with the pipe, the part of the equipment, the shape of the corresponding stainless steel flange, also known as the stainless steel flange connection.
All in the vicinity of the use of the two plane bolt connection and the closure of the connecting parts, are generally referred to as the “flange”, such as ventilation pipe connection, this kind of parts can be called “flange type parts”. But this connection is only a part of the device, such as the connection of the flange and the pump, the pump is called “flange type parts”. Relatively small, such as valves, can be called “flange type parts”.
In industrial pipe, the use of flange connection is very extensive. In the family, the stainless steel pipe diameter is small, and it is low pressure, can not see the flange connection. If in a boiler room or in the production site, there are all of the flange connection pipe and equipment.
