Slip-On (SO) Flanges:

Ease of Installation: SO flanges slide over the end of pipes, facilitating quick and hassle-free installation.

Cost-Effective Solution: Known for their simplicity, SO flanges offer a cost-effective option for connecting pipes.

Limited Pressure Rating: While suitable for low-pressure applications, SO flanges may not be ideal for high-pressure environments.

Weld Neck (WN) Flanges:

Enhanced Strength and Stability: WN flanges feature a protruding neck that provides added reinforcement, enhancing the structural integrity of the joint.

Superior Performance in High-Pressure Environments: With their welded connection, WN flanges offer greater resistance to pressure and temperature fluctuations, making them ideal for demanding applications.

Precise Alignment: The welded neck ensures accurate alignment of the flange and pipe, minimizing the risk of misalignment and leakage.

Understanding Flange Sealing Surfaces

Flange sealing surfaces play a critical role in ensuring leak-free connections in piping systems. Common sealing surface types include:

Flat Face (FF):Suitable for low-pressure applications, FF flanges feature a flat mating surface.

Raised Face (RF):RF flanges feature a raised ring around the bore, allowing for better alignment and improved sealing performance.

Ring Joint (RTJ):RTJ flanges use a metal ring gasket to achieve a tight seal, making them suitable for high-pressure and high-temperature applications.
