Frequently Asked Questions About Flanges

Q: What is a flange?

A: A flange is an external or internal ridge used to attach one object to another. This includes connecting everything from industrial pipes and cylinders to the mount of a camera lens. 

Q: What are flanges used for?

A: Flanges are used to attach two parts, most often pipes. Since flanges have ridges, they form a lip where bolts or screws can be used to secure parts together. This additional material creates stronger bonds and reduces the chance of leaks from the pipe. Flanges also allow greater control over temperature and pressure within the pipes by forming a reliable seal. As a result, our flanges have been used in oil, gas, and nuclear facilities as well.

Q: Which industries use flanges?

A: Almost every industry utilizes flanges in some capacity. The oil and gas industry relies on flanges to prevent costly leaks in their extensive piping systems. Nuclear, gas, and electrical plants all use flanges, along with many industries reliant on liquid or gas transportation.
