What Is A Flange Used For?

What Is A Flange Used For? A flange, also known as a flange flange or flange, is a part used for connecting shafts to shafts or equipment to equipment. It can mainly connect the pipe end, and can also connect the import and export of the equipment, such as the reducer flange.

The flang connection or flange joint is a detachable connection of a group of sealing structures formed by connecting flanges, gaskets and bolts. The flanges are sealed with gaskets and are usually used in pairs. Depending on the pressure requirements of the pipe or equipment, the thickness of the flang and the bolts used will also vary. France has a wide range of applications in the chemical, petrochemical, fire and drainage industries.


Operating Steps

1. Preparation before installation:

Check the integrity of the flang and its accessories (such as bolts, gaskets) to ensure that there are no damage or defects.

Clean the connection surface, remove oil, impurities, etc., to ensure that the connection surface is smooth and clean.

2. Installation process:

Align the flang with the device or pipe to be connected, ensuring a tight fit of the connecting surface.

Install and tighten the bolts correctly according to the type and specification of the flang. Pay attention to the tightening sequence and strength of the bolts to avoid the situation of too tight or too loose.

When installing the gasket, ensure that the position of the gasket is correct and smooth. And it can avoid displacement or damage of the gasket.

3. Check and test:

After the installation is complete, check the appearance of the joint to ensure that there is no leakage or loosening.

Pressure test or tightness test as required to ensure joint performance and safety.

4. Maintenance and maintenance:

Regularly check whether the bolts and gaskets at the flang connection are in good condition. And workers can replace them in time if they are damaged or aged.

Clean and maintain the joint regularly to avoid problems such as dust accumulation and corrosion.
