Flanges are a type of pipe fitting that is utilized in connecting pipes, valves, and pumps in the piping industry. A Socket Weld Flange is a fixture that is used in connecting small pipes in high-pressure systems. These flanges are inserted in a recessed socket and are subsequently welded using a single fillet weld. The Socket Weld Flange is generally seen in applications where the stress on the components is low. These flanges help save space and are very useful in systems where internal welding is difficult.
The versatile Socket Weld Pipe Flange is made having low integrity welds and is available in different pressure classes. These flanges have schedules ranging between SCH 5 to SCH 160 and XXS. They are available having a raised or flat face type. The Socket Weld Raised Face Flange is one of the common face types in the industry. These flanges have a raised surface near the bolting area allowing the flange to tightly seal the item in place. A Socket Weld Reducing Flange has a robust design allowing it to connect piping fixtures of different sizes in the system. They have a unique construction with rigid geometry. Socket Weld Orifice Flange is manufactured to measure the flow of fluids and gases in the system. These flanges are designed in a disc shape and generally have a ring-type or raised face finish.
Socket weld flanges are designed in different configurations to suit different projects. The Stainless Steel Socket Weld Flanges possess superior strength and showcase enhanced corrosion resistance properties. These flanges work well in high as well as low-temperature setups. Carbon Steel Socket Weld Flanges are designed with either high, mild, or low carbon content. This content of carbon influences their ductility and strength across stress-induced conditions. The versatile Alloy Steel Socket Weld Flanges are produced with different alloy grades making them usable for different applications. They are durable and require low levels of maintenance.
