What is a flange?
A pipe flange is a method of connecting pipes, valves, pumps and other equipment to form a piping system. It also provides easy access for cleaning, inspection or modification. Flanges are usually welded or screwed. Flanged joints are made by bolting together two flanges with a gasket between them to provide a seal.
Carbon Steel Flanges are required for making tight, secure, & leak-free connections to an existing piping system according to need. JS Flanges have pre-drilled holes for hassle-free bolting using appropriate fasteners. JS flanges are also suitable for making fire pipe fitting in a reliable manner and during building & construction work. This category offered by JS FITTINGS includes Carbon Steel Welding Neck Flanges, Carbon Steel Slip-on Flanges, Carbon Steel Threaded Flanges, Carbon Steel Plate Flanges, Blind Flanges, Socket Welding Flanges, Ring Type Joint Flanges, Carbon Steel Reducing Flanges, and Carbon Steel Long Weld Neck Flange. They have a robust structural configuration with Anti-rust oil surface or galvanized surface thus assure good corrosion resistance. These steel flanges are highly durable in nature and do not require any special maintenance.
What flanges are used in petrochemical industry?

In many applications, engineers need to find a way to close off a chamber or cylinder in a very secure fashion, usually because the substance inside must differ from the substance outside in composition or pressure.
Flanges are integral parts of many engineering and plumbing projects.
They do this by fastening two pieces of metal or other material together with a circle of bolts on a lip. This “lip” is a flange.

Plumbing

You can connect two sections of metal piping by soldering or welding them together, but pipes connected in this way are very susceptible to bursting at high pressures. A way of connecting two sections of pipe more securely is by having flanged ends that you can connect with bolts. This way, even if gases or liquids build up to high pressures inside the pipe, it will often hold with no problem.

Mechanics

In order to connect two sections of a large, enclosed area, it is often best to used flanges and bolts. An example of this is the connection between the engine and the transmission in an automobile. In this case, both the engine and the transmission contain a number of moving parts that can easily get damaged if they get dust or other small objects inside of them. By connecting the outer casings of the engine and transmission in this way, engineers protect the inner workings of both.

Electronics

Flanges have a specific purpose in cameras and other electronic devices. Though flanges in such items do not usually have to sustain high pressures, they do have to hold tight so they can keep out harmful particles. These flanges are usually found connecting two different materials, such as the glass of a lens and the rest of the body of the camera
