Socket Weld Flange

The stainless steel socket weld flange is similar to a slip-on flange, except only one fillet weld is made to the pipe and flange. The socket weld flanges  is welded with the pipe by inserting the socket into the pipe and backing the piping out linking 1/16” and 1/8”. It is used to prevent the enlarging pipe on the inner side of the weld from expanding while cracking the weld on the fitting. There are a also various contradictory procedure for confirming that the pipe has sufficient evacuation when welding. First insert and mark  the pipe fully into the Ansi B16.5 socket weld flange before use then remove the pipe so that the nick has removed and make the weld. The abbreviation of socket weld is SW Flange which have implementation in industries that uses piping.

Socket Weld Flange is available in Flat Face, Raised Face and RTJ type connections. Socket Flanges that are adaptable with ASME B16.5 are only accessible in the here under amalgamation. The counter bore is moderately substantial than the O.D. of the corresponding pipe, permitting the pipe to install into the flange homogeneous to a slip-on flange. The I.D. of the machine pipe is the same as the diameter of the smaller bore. A limitation is mould at the lowest point of the bore which sets as a shoulder for the pipe to rest on. This annihilate any limitation flow when using a socket weld flange.

The other method is by using a tool called a gap o’let. It is a springy spacer which is inserted between the pipe and the socket weld flange. The use of gap o’let should be examined before conniving a piping system. The reason for this is over time, the gap o’let may dislodge itself from the flange and travel downstream of the flange. This flanges were initially designed for compact diameter, high pressure pipe.

Moreover the products are available at very fair & competitive price.

Types Of Pipe Flange

Slip-on flange, weld neck flange, threaded flange, socket weld flange, blind flange, lap joint flange are the most common types of steel flanges. The special flanges such as orifice flanges, long weld neck flanges, spectacle flange to cater all industrial needs. In fact steel pipe flange are manufactured according to international quality standards which are available in various material, sizes & dimensions. In hazardous welding areas where the situation is extraordinary and areas are highly volatile. For that reason one can use our pipe flanges as an advantage in working those circumstances. Thereupon we timely deliver the products within stipulated time frame. High durability, corrosion resistance technique as well as dimensional accuracy are the advantages of our products. Our range of flanges consequently got approval in the global and the domestic markets
