Tips to consider when choosing steel flanges

Posted By Metal group     November 30, 2022    


Stainless steel is superior to other metals due to its physical properties, such as excellent corrosion resistance, toughness etc. Also, various industrial, commercial and residential items are manufactured using this metal.


For example, stainless steel pipes are one of the most common products made from this metal and are supported by certain accessories made from the same metal. Copper Nickel Pipe Fittings are one of the accessories used for this purpose, and they come in wide varieties.Many suppliers offer steel flanges for both commercial and private use. Many provide individual product specifications on standard data sheets or the package itself.


Industrial steel flange


The specification for stainless steel cable ties depends on the product's application. Forged flanges standards and specifications are very strict.



These Duplex Flanges are used in industries such as petrochemicals and potable water. They must meet specifications that meet the specified temperature, pressure and thread requirements for the specific application. Failure to meet these specifications in any of these industries can result in a catastrophic release.


Steel flange for homes

Houses, apartments and townhouses can use stainless steel flanges for their heating and cooling systems. These systems often work partly by moving water or steam for heating or cooling.


For example, homes that still use space heaters must force water through the coils to generate heat. These systems use Super Duplex Flanges for operation, and similar to industrial flange specifications, these flanges must meet thermal resistance and mating requirements to prevent failure.


Types of stainless steel pipe flanges


  • Weld Neck Flanges: Weld neck flanges have the same angle and thickness as the pipe. It is considered for severe service conditions such as high temperatures or below zero and for high-pressure applications.



  • Slip-On Flanges: They have a slightly larger diameter than the pipe, making it easier to slide over. These stainless steel flanges are fillet welded and are ideal for low-pressure applications.


  • Threaded flanges: These flanges are used for special applications and can be easily assembled since they do not require welding. On the other hand, they are not recommended for applications involving bending stresses, high pressure, or high temperatures.


  • Lap Joint Flanges: These are slip-on flanges used with trunnion end fittings. They are ideal for piping systems that require regular inspection and maintenance.


  • Socket Weld Flanges: These are designed for small-diameter, high-pressure pipes. It has internal welds that contribute to its durability and resistance to fatigue. Also known as socket weld flanges, they are used in the chemical processing industry.


  • Orifice Flanges:The function of these steel flanges is to provide access to a line for measuring liquids or gases. 


  • Union or Ring Type Flanges: These are used for high-pressure and high-temperature applications. Ring-type joint flanges have a groove that can be easily compressed into blind, slip-on, or weld neck flanges. They help prevent leaks in pipes.


Perhaps an essential aspect of steel flange specifications relates to the steel from which it is made. Because Copper Nickel Flanges are located at pipe attachment points, they are subjected to additional pressure. That is why they must pass different standards and rigorous tests for steel.
