Weld Neck Flanges
Weld neck flanges attach to the pipe by welding the pipe to the neck of the pipe flange. The allows for the transfer of stress from the weld neck pipe flanges to the pipe itself. This also reduces high stress concentration at the base of the hub of the weld neck pipe flanges. Weld neck pipe flanges are often used for high pressure applications. The inside diameter of a weld neck pipe flange is machined to match the inside diameter of the pipe. Weld Neck Pipe flanges with a hub have published specifications that range from 1/2″ thru 96″. TongKang Flange provides Weld Neck pipe flanges in all material grades, specifications and sizes.
Weld-Neck flanges or welding-neck flanges can be differentiated from all other types of flange by their long tapered hub. In addition, there is also a gentle transition of thickness in the region of the butt weld that joins them to pipe or a fitting. Weld-Neck flanges or welding-neck flanges are best suited for severe service conditions, whether loading conditions are substantially constant or fluctuate between wide limits.
Weld Neck Flanges are flanges with the wall thickness of the flange having the same dimensions of the matching pipe, the lighter the pipe is, the larger the bore, conversely, the heavier the pipe, the smaller the bore, they are normally used for high pressure, cold or hot temperature.
