What is Pipe Flange
A pipe flange is disc, collar or ring that attaches to pipe with the purpose of providing increased support for strength, blocking off a pipeline or implementing the attachment of more items. Pipe flanges are usually welded or screwed to the pipe end and are connected with bolts. A gasket is inserted between the two mating flanges to provide a tighter seal. Pipe flanges are either custom with dimenions provided by the customer or they are manufactured according to published specifications.
