Frequently Asked Questions:
What is a pipe flange?
What is a Pipe Flange? A pipe flange connects piping and components in a piping system by use of bolted connections and gaskets
Where are pipe flanges used?
The main use of flange is to connect pumps, pipes, valves, and other equipment to make a pipework system. Usually, flanges are threaded or welded, and you can connect two flanges by bolting them with gaskets and providing a seal that gives easy access to the piping system.
What are the types of flange?
Different Types of Flanges and Their Uses

What is the function of flange?
Flanges are used to connect pipes with each other, to valves, to fittings, and to specialty items such as strainers and pressure vessels.
Why are pipe flanges important?
Flanges are helpful to connect pumps, valves, pipes, and other parts to form a piping system. The use of flanges allows a person for maintenance and easy repair of the pipe system.
How many types of flanges in piping?
Pipe flanges can be divided into eight types based on design. These types are blind, lap joint, orifice, reducing, slip-on, socket-weld, threaded, and weld neck.
What is a steel flange?
A steel flange is a forged or cast plate-like device. These can be used to strengthen and connect columns, beams or pipes
What are the advantages of a flange?
Flanges Provide Easy Maintenance
What is a slip on flange?
Slip on Flange is essentially a ring that is placed over the pipe end, with the flange face extending from the end of the pipe by enough distance to apply a weld bead on the inside diameter
What is a blind flange?
The blind flange is basically a flange that does not have a hub or a bored center.
What is RF in piping?
The Raised Face flange is the most common type used in process plant applications, and is easily to identify. It is referred to as a raised face because the gasket surfaces are raised above the bolting circle face.
