Application of Flange Gaskets in Various Industries
A flange not only serves in connecting pipes, valves, pumps and other equipment to form a piping system,but also provides easy access for cleaning, inspection or modification. Flanges are usually welded or screwed by bolting together two flanges with a gasket between them to provide a secure seal.
Flange gaskets and seals supplied by our Delhi based gasket company
has been serving required purpose in different fields, such as in pipelines or transportation equipment of petroleum, gas, water, etc., many manufacturing units and those of power generation, chemicals, and chemical fertilizers, construction and so on in all states of North India- Rajasthan, Himachal, UP, Punjab, Haryana etc.
Now that we have a fair idea about what are flanges and gaskets and what are the main types of flanges used in various industries
, let see what industries they serve in. Applications of flanges -
Let's consider the connection between the engine and the transmission in an automobile, where both contain a number of moving parts that can easily get damaged if exposed to dust or other small objects get inside of them. By connecting the outer casings of the engine and transmission by flanges and bolts, engineers protect the inner workings of both.
Even though the small flanges in electronics like camera and other devices do not usually have to sustain high pressures, they do have to hold tight so they can keep out dust and harmful particles. In case of a camera, the glass of a lens and the rest of the body of the camera are connected in a secure fashion by flanges.
Water pipes at many places usually have to withstand heavy pressure and may be sudden pressure also, so it’s important to connect the two sections of pipe securely using flange gaskets. AT times pipes that are soldered or welded together do not withstand the pressure but using flanges and bolts is a much safer way. This way, even if gases build up high pressures inside the pipe, it will often hold with no problem.
We can often see the steel long weld neck flanges being used in chemical and petroleum industries
, as well as commercial and residential buildings
that experience high levels of stress and fluctuating temperatures. Here, the extended tapered neck solves the purpose.
Forged flanges are used as a connection component for pipes, valves, pumps and other equipment to form a pipe work system. They provide easy access for cleaning, inspection, modification or repairs.
Other varieties like spectacle blinds, ring spacer and spades etc are used for varied requirements like permanently separating pipe systems, or just to connect with each other or at the end of pipe or at the junction that would possibly be a future expansion into that direction and so on.
