Flanges link pipes, valves, pumps, and other pieces to form a piping system. Flanges are usually welded or bolted together. The use of flanges simplifies the maintenance and repair of pipe systems. Instead of inspecting the entire pipe, a tiny part of it can be carefully examined and the fault located using a flange.
The following are the five most important benefits of The following are the five most important benefits of flanges:
1. Easy assembly in tight areas where typical flange fittings may not have enough clearance for wrenches. They're easier to assemble with modest torque.
2. Adapters in the hose line, pipe, or tube can be removed in hard-to-reach regions where flexibility is required.
3. Pipe connections, tubes, or huge hose links with high pressure, vibration, or shock pressures may be more easily damaged than standard large hydraulic fittings.
4. Making connections in solid lines, such as metal tubes or continuous pipes, enables easy maintenance.
5. Reduce the possibility of components becoming loose in high-demand hydraulic applications.
