  Carbon steel flange is the connecting device of two large-caliber pipelines, usually two carbon steel flanges with a number of fastening bolts.ASME B16.5 Carbon Steel Forged Blind Flange is a disc-shaped part, which is most common in pipeline engineering. Flanges are used in pairs. Carbon steel flange is a kind of flange made of carbon steel. Low carbon steel has good plasticity and low strength. Flange connections may need to withstand high tensile, compressive, torsional and shear strength. Carbon steel flange is a better choice.

  In pipeline engineering, carbon steel flanges are mainly used for the connection of steel pipes. In pipelines that need to be connected, one flange can be installed in all kinds. In low pressure pipelines, wire flanges can be used. Welded flanges can be used under pressure of more than 4 kg. Sealing points are added between the two flanges, and then bolted. Carbon steel flanges with different pressures have different thicknesses and bolts. When pumps and valves are connected to pipes, parts of these equipment are also made into corresponding flange shapes, also known as flange connections.

  In the family, the diameter of the pipeline is small, and it is low pressure, so the carbon steel flange connection can not be seen. If you are in a boiler room or production site, there are flanged pipes and equipment everywhere.

  Carbon steel flange is widely used in petroleum and natural gas pipelines, oil refining cracking units and nuclear industry. It has compact structure, reliable sealing, simple structure and convenient maintenance. The sealing surface and spherical surface are often in closed state. It is not easy to be eroded by medium and easy to operate and maintain. It is suitable for water, solvent, acid and natural gas.
