Weld Neck WN Flange are designed to be joined to a piping system by butt welding. This kind of flange include lots of specification, Weld neck Flange is expensive because of its long neck and cost of people for contact WN flange with pipeline or fitting, but is preferred for high stress applications. The necks, or hubs, transmits stresses to the pipeline. The gradual transition of thickness from the base of the hub to the wall thickness at the butt weld provides important reinforcement of the Weld Neck flange. The bore of Weld - Neck flange matches bore of the pipeline, reducing turbulence and erosion.
Slip on Flange has a low hub because the pipe slips into the flange prior to welding.It is welded both inside and out to provide sufficient strength and prevent leakage.Slip-on flanges are all bored slightly larger than the O.D.of the matching pipe.They are preferred over welding neck flanges by many users due to their lower initial cost,but final installation cost is probably not much less than that of the welding neck flange because of the additional welding involved. We are a professional flange manufacturer and the standards we can produce is ANSI, DIN, BS and EN1092-1. Our brand is TANA and we do best for our products.
Blind flange is used to close ends of piping systems. It is a kind of round plate with no center hold but with all the proper bolt holes. This blind flange is available in various sizes and materials and is used to provide positive closer on the ends of pipes, valves or equipment nozzles. This flange helps in easy access to a line once it has been sealed. The blind flange is sometimes custom made or machined to accept a nominal sized pipe to which reduction is being made. This reduction can be a threaded reduction or welded reduction.
Flat faced flange is a flange that is machined flat and does not have a ridge like a raised face or ring type joint flange. The flat surface allows for the gasket to have full contact with the entire mating surface. The purpose of the flat face is to eliminate the bending moment put on the flange when the bolts are torqued. When using cast iron or fiberglass flanges, this bending moment can easily break the flange.In general, flat faced flanges are used in low pressure and temperature environments such as water treatment or pump suction flanges. Flat face flanges are usually common when the piping or piping components are brittle such as plastic, fiberglass or cast iron. However, it should be noted that these flanges come in all different types of materials, including steel.
Plain Flange (Plate flange) is also called flat flange, plate slip on flange or a ring flange. It looks like a flat circular disk with inner bore and bolt holes on it . It is one kind of the slip on flange.Plate flange means the flange is like a flat plate, it could be Raised Face (RF) sealing face , commonly the plate flange could be RF or FF face, the Raised Face Plain Flange is much popular in regular industry systems.In ANSI/ASME B16.5 flange standard , there is no plate slip on flange , only hub slip on flange in it , but in different projects the ANSI B16.5 plate flange is used a lot for decrease the cost of the projects. The ANSI /ASME B16.5 plain flange should have the same dimensions and PCDs with the Slip on flange, the only difference is without a hub on the flange.
