Joining Method Flanged


Flanging maybe used for threaded or plane-end pipe. After a flange component is installed on the pipe, and prior to being attached to another flange product a gasket is placed between the two flange components and bolted together for a leak free joint.  It is important to select the proper gasket material based on the fluid application.  Flanged joints are primarily used where piping components cannot be serviced in-line and where rapid field assembly and frequent disassembly are desired. Flanged systems normally are available 125, 150, 200, 300 psi.  Flanged systems are used almost entirely above ground and should be checked periodically to insure leak free systems.  Improper installation of flanged joints can lead to costly repair problems.   To insure joint integrity completely follow manufactures instructions.
