- Oct 08, 2018 -

Flange, also known as flange flange or flange. The flange is the part of the shaft and the shaft that is connected to each other for the connection between the ends of the pipe. It is also used for the flange on the inlet and outlet of the device for the connection between two devices, such as the flange of the reducer. A flange connection or a flange joint refers to a detachable connection in which a flange, a gasket and a bolt are connected to each other as a combined sealing structure. Pipe flange refers to the flange used for piping in the pipeline installation. It is used on the equipment to refer to the inlet and outlet flanges of the equipment. There are holes in the flange, and the bolts make the two flanges tightly connected. The flanges are sealed with gaskets. Flange threaded connection (threaded connection) flange, welded flange and clip flange. Flanges are used in pairs. Low-pressure pipes can be used with wire-bonded flanges. Weld flanges are used for pressures above four kilograms. A gasket is placed between the two flanges and then bolted. Different flange thicknesses for different pressures use different bolts. Pumps and valves, when connected to the pipeline, part of these equipment, also made into the corresponding flange shape, also known as flange connection. Joint parts that are bolted at the same time around two planes are generally referred to as "flanges". For example, the connection of ventilation ducts, such parts can be called "flange parts". However, this connection is only a part of the equipment, such as the connection between the flange and the water pump, it is not good to call the pump "flange parts". Smaller such as valves, etc., can be called "flange parts".
