The pipe flange with neck has good rigidity, small welding deformation and good sealing performance. It can be used for occasions with pressure of 1.0 ~ 10.0MPa.
Type B flange for vessel is also a socket welding flange, which is used in occasions with high sealing requirements. During design, socket welding flange can be checked as integral flange.
Used for socket welding flanges in boiler and pressure vessel, petroleum, chemical industry, shipbuilding, pharmaceutical, metallurgy, machinery, stamping elbow, food and other industries: commonly used in pipelines with PN ≤ 10.0MPa and DN ≤ 40
