A flange is a device that connects and influences the characteristics of the flow in different systems. A Weld Neck Flange is a high-strength module that is designed to work in high-pressure and temperature applications. Designed with a long protruding or tapered hub, the versatile Weld Neck Flanges provide support to a wide spectrum of piping features during the vigorous movement of fluid or gases in the system. They are butt-welded and allow for equal weight distribution with the connected item. Carbon Steel Weld Neck Flanges are high-strength components that are very ductile and formable. These flanges are likely to be corroded in harsh conditions. The Alloy Steel Weld Neck Flanges are designed possessing different alloys that give them different features allowing them to thrive in stress-induced environments.
The Stainless Steel Weld Neck Flanges are one of the most utilized flanges in this grade. These flanges are highly resistant to corrosive media and oxidative reducers. The 304 and 316 grades of stainless steel are commonly seen in the industry. Stainless Steel 304 Weld Neck Flanges are designed with an18/8 content of chromium and nickel, giving them good tolerance in different environments. The Stainless Steel 304L Weld Neck Flanges are low carbon grade flanges. These flanges can be easily welded and resist the formation of grain boundary after the welding process. Stainless Steel 316 Weld Neck Flanges are designed with a superior chemical composition consisting of 10% nickel, 16% chromium, and 2-3% of molybdenum. The content of molybdenum gives them superior resistance to pitting and corrosive media than the 304 grades. The Stainless Steel 316L Weld Neck Flanges are lower carbon versions of the 316 grade.
A Weld Neck Raised Face Flange is the most common face type in the industry. These flanges have a raised surface near the bolting area ensuring a leak-proof sealing. Long Weld Neck Raised Face Flange has a larger head in comparison to a normal weld neck flange that acts as a boring extension to the module. The Raised Face Weld Neck Reducing Flange helps connect piping modules of different sizes in the industry.
