What Are the Different Types of Metal Flanges?

  Commonly found in plumbing applications, metal flanges provide a quick and easy method for joining lengths of pipe to one another. A flange consists of an external ring around one end of a structure, pipe, or tube that contains matching boltholes for easy assembly. In contrast, pipes that require joining but lack any flanges normally involve either welding or soldering as the joining method. There are several different types of metal flanges available to cover a wide variety of applications. These include the copper flanges, iron flanges, Super Duplex Stainless Steel Flanges, and stainless steel flanges; these are implemented as structural flanges, plumbing flanges, and even microwave flanges.

  The types of metal flanges one may encounter often depends on their applications or uses. For example, water pipes generally use a copper or stainless steel flange, since a ductile ironflange can fail over time due to the natural result of rust forming when water reacts with iron. In other words, the product passing through any given flanged system dictates the appropriate materials used in the construction of the flanges, as well as in the tubing or piping itself.

  We have adopted advanced production equipment and technologies to manufacture our socket flanges and plate flange, which can not only improve product quality, but also save raw materials. Our products have high strength, good toughness and resistance to corrosion.
