They very profusely understand their customer’s requirements and work towards achieving high customer satisfaction. They manufacture and supply excellent quality, wide range of flanges all over the globe.
Blind flange is a flange that does not have a hub or a bored center. These have the face thickness of a flange, a matching face type and similar bolting pattern. It serves the function similar to that of a plug or a cap. Blind flanges look like a plate with bolts holes around. There is no inner hole on the blind flange comparing to other type flanges, so the blind flange is used to close the end of a vessel or piping system.
The materials used for the manufacture of these flanges are – Carbon steel, Alloy steel, Stainless steel, Titanium, Nickel alloys, etc.
The types of Blind Flanges are
Raised Face – The small raised section around the bore is an implementation of the gasket used in this system.
Ring Joint Face – This face type is used in high-pressure and high-temperature processes, featuring a groove in which a metal gasket sits to maintain the seal.
Tongue and Groove –These flanges feature matching grooves and raised sections. This aids in installation as the design helps the flanges to self-align and provides a reservoir for gasket adhesive.
Male & Female – Similar to tongue and groove flanges, these flanges use a matching pair of grooves and raised sections to secure the gasket. However, unlike tongue and groove flanges, these retain the gasket on the female face, providing more accurate placement and increased gasket material options.
