Flanges is type of forged cast iron that is specially designed for connecting pipe section or any other machinery that requires transitional connecting pipe. These flanges are used in every industries from industrial to commercial fitting projects. There are many well known manufacturer or suppliers who provide their best services in the all around the world. But finding the appropriate flange can be difficult which perfectly fit for your particular application.
For that, you have to understand the need of flange for particular application such as flange type, size, diameter and material. Although, if you need a flange for plumbing projects than it should be corrosion resistance. Some basic type of flanges that have huge demands are alloy steel flanges, stainless steel flanges( which is also known as “หน้าแปลนสแตนเลส“ in the Thai language) and carbon steel flanges.

Stainless steel flanges is commonly used for making flanges. They utilized as a plate which is used to cover or close the end of pipe. That’s why stainless steel tube flanges considered to be an integral part of components which used to support mechanical parts or system. They also comes in different designs such as socket weld, slip on, weld neck, lap joint and so on. Generally, they are used in plumbing application as water connectors.
In addition, as compared to stainless steel grades, the carbon steel pipe flanges have a higher carbon content. They also plays a important role for providing the hardest and strongest material. Further, these flanges have good durability and they offer better heat distribution properties.
Apart from that, among alloy steel grades, when metals like Nickel, Chromium and Molybdenum along with other alloying element content consist of less than 10.5% of the total alloy percentage, they are defined as low alloy steels. Generally, most low alloy steel flanges possess a precise chemical composition.
All these are some important types of steel flanges which is widely popular among people or many construction, mechanical and commercial industries. So, you have to find the right one as per required need of application.
