Swivel Ring Flange permits 360° rotation of an outer ring around a hub, to allow easy alignment of bolt holes when attaching to a mating standard flange. This capability is important when only a single diver is available to align and make up the flange connection. Moreover, the outer ring Flange of the Swivel Ring Flange assembly is held in position by a retainer ring that freely rotates around the inner weld-neck hub for quickly positioning the bolt holes of the two joining Flanges.
Although, Swivel Ring Flanges are extensively suitable in subsea applications. They are useful across multiple application in the following areas :
- Chemical Engineering
- Onshore Oil&Gas
- Paper Plants
- Finally, food & Pharmacy
Swivel ring flanges are on duty to simplify the final tie-in process of subsea pipelines. By allowing the 360° rotation of the bolt-holes to align with those of the mating flange, They particularly reduce dive-time and makes connection easy.
Flanges are mainly suitable for piping applications alternatively for a welding connection. The most common types are weld neck, slip-on, lap joint, threaded, swivel flange, socket weld, and blind flanges. The selection of each type mainly relies on your strength requirement for the flanged joint. All types have the characteristics of convenient installation and maintenance.
The Swivel Ring Flange is comparable to a set of stub end and lap joint flange, with the difference that a Swivel Ring Flange is suitable for higher pressure and mostly in offshore as well as sub-sea applications. The swivel ring flanges adjust for bolt hole misalignment in the field via rotational adjustment of the bolt hole pattern on the flange ring relative to the spool piece.
