Threaded flanges look very similar to Slip-On flanges but the main difference is that the threaded flange has been was bored out to match a specific pipe inside diameter. The backside of this center opening is then threaded with the relevant-sized tapered pipe thread.
Threaded Flanges can be used in very high pressure services and their major advantage is that they can be assembled without welding.
Uses of threaded flanges :
- Threaded flanges can be fitted to pipes of various sizes without welding and this is one chief benefit for which these flanges are highly demanded.
- They can be used in extremely high pressure applications, particularly at or near atmospheric temperature, where the necessary post weld heat treatment is not possible.
- They are ideal for small diameter piping applications.
- They are economical and time saving devices.
- These threaded flanges are normally designed for non-cyclic applications.
- The flanges are suitable to be used in applications where welding is hazardous.
- They can be used in highly explosive areas.
The various types of threaded flanges are as follows:
- Plain Threaded Flanges
- Female Threaded Flanges
- Male Threaded Flanges
