What Is a Pipe Flange and Why Is It Important?
A pipe flange is a critical component of a piping system, designed to join pipes, components, and equipment together. The use of a flange allows for easy disassembly of your system for maintenance, repairs, and modifications.
A flange joint consists of a flange, a gasket, and bolting, forming a leak-proof joint. Flanges are commonly found in industrial equipment and are essential for ensuring the smooth operation of your piping systems.
