In the present era, everyone want to use steel pipe because it is clean, durable, corrosion resistant material. Stainless steel pipes are substitution of the old style and the traditional galvanized pipes.
These steel pipes are comes in different styles, sizes and for different reasons. They have a long life span and more flexible and rigid that’s why most of people fond of steel pipe.
Stainless steel flange (it is also known as “หน้าแปลนสแตนเลส“ in the Thai language) is also used in plumbing system and it’s a very common type of steel material. It is a cast ring of steel that designed to connect mechanical sections of pipe or join pipe to a pressure vessel, pump, valve or any other piece of equipment. It provides easy access for cleaning, inspection or modification.

Apart from that, there is some basic types of steel flanges are available that usually use by plumbers in plumbing system. These flanges is slipped over the pipe and setup by welding process at both top and base side of the flange.
Weld Neck Flange: By using this, they provide sufficient strength to the connection and prevent leakage. This flange is favored over weld neck flanges as less accuracy is required when cutting pipe to length, the cost to produce is lower but there is nearly the same outcome.
Socket weld flange: It is used on smaller sizes of high pressure pipes. This flange is attached to the pipe by a fillet weld around the hub of the flange. It allows a smooth bore and better flow of the fluid or gas inside of the pipe.,
Instead of this, flanges still has more other types those are also used for different application. These flanges are perfect solution for long use. They have various different designs with good features.
