A blind flange is a rigid disc that is used to seal off a pipeline or form a barrier. A blind flange, like a standard flange, has housing holes around the circumference and gasket binding bands cut into the contact point. A blind flange, on the other hand, has no hole for liquids to flow in.
A forged blind flange is placed between two exposed flanges, thus stopping the flow of water via a pipe. This form of blockage is frequently utilized while connecting a new line to an existing line or putting in a new valve.
In absence of a blind flange, repairing or doing constant monitoring on a pipeline would indeed be nearly difficult unless circulation is cut off at the previous valves, however, this might also affect miles of the piping network.
Through the use of forged steel blind flanges, there has been substantially accelerated pipeline construction. It has also simplified the work of maintenance and component replacing. Pipe segments may now be built and sent to the construction site anywhere in the globe. We may easily be fastened in position once there, and the restoration is complete.
At Shacha Technoforge, we ensure that the quality of forged steel blind flange or any of any other material is sturdy enough to terminate and hold off the flow of a liquid in a pipe network. We offer three different types of blind flanges, such as
A36 Steel Plate
Stainless Steel 304 and 316
Carbon Steel Flange (CSA W47.0)
Choosing Blind Flanges
Whenever you need to select blind flanges, you should examine the optimum flange materials and specifications in accordance with your planned application's pipe standards and needs. In practice, the flange composition must be the same as the connected pipe's material. Steel and stainless steel are the most frequent blind flange materials.
Steel is the recommended material for strength. Shacha Technoforge supplies forged and plate steel blind flanges. 304L and 316L stainless steel flanges are also available in forged or plate forms. For corrosion protection, our forged stainless steel flanges are frequently preferred.
Application of Blind Flanges
Blind flanges have been utilized to shut the terminus of a pipe system and prohibit flow, whereas other flange varieties form a connecting point that enables the passage of liquid, gas, or air. Blind flanges are used for assessing pipe strength, creating a point of accessibility in a pipe network, temporary sealing of a piping system whilst changing or fixing the line, and creating a long-term sealing to terminate a piping system.
