Threaded Flange 8 hole is socket weld flange that can be used in piping systems where it is not possible to carry out welding of flange on to the pipe. Such as in highly explosive areas where welding can create a potential hazard.
Socket weld Threaded flanges are available in sizes up to 4 inches and multiple pressure ratings. However, they are suitable, mostly, small size piping in low pressure and low-temperature applications, like water and air utility services.
Threaded Flanges can be used in very high pressure services and their major advantage is that they can be assembled without welding. And the additional torque generated on the cylinder or pipe when the flange is deformed is small. The disadvantage is that the flange is thick and the cost is high. Suitable for connection to high pressure pipes.
Threaded flanges are also a mandatory requirement in explosive areas. Such as gas stations and plants, as the execution of welded connections in such environments would be dangerous. It is recommended not to use a threaded flange to avoid leakage when the temperature of the pipe changes sharply or the temperature is higher than 260 °C and lower than -45 °C.
Flanges are mainly suitable for piping applications alternatively for a welding connection. Most common types are weld neck, slip-on, lap joint, threaded, swivel ring, 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.
Threaded Flanges are suitable for special circumstances with their main advantage being that they can attach to the pipe without welding. Sometimes a seal weld is also used in conjunction with the threaded connection. They also look very similar to Slip-On flanges. But the main difference is that the threading flange is bore out to match a specific pipe inside diameter. The backside of this center opening is threading with the relevant size taper pipe thread.
