Stainless Steel Thermowell langes are specialized parts used in industrial process control systems to shield temperature sensors (thermometers or thermocouples) from corrosive or abrasive substances, high pressure, or other environmental elements that could harm or compromise the measurement's accuracy.
ARAMCO, the Saudi Arabian Oil Company, has its requirements for the materials and products they utilize. ARAMCO-Approved Flanges must comply with requirements for the type of steel used, its chemical composition, mechanical properties, heat treatment, and non-destructive testing, to name just a few.
Socket Weld Neck Flanges are designed to be welded onto pipes using a socket weld connection. They are widely used in high-pressure piping systems where welding is necessary to make a safe and leak-free connection. For a more stable weld, socket weld neck flanges, like slip-on flanges, have a socket designed to fit over the pipe.
Blinds Flanges are a subset of piping flanges used to close off a pipe or valve's termination. They connect to other flanges or fittings and are flat plates with bolt holes. Depending on the application and the precise specifications of the piping system, blind flanges are frequently built of materials like carbon steel, stainless steel, or other alloys.
Screwed/Threaded Flanges are flanges with a threaded bore that can be screwed onto a corresponding pipe or fit with a matching thread. These flanges are widely used in low-pressure applications where welding is impractical or permitted. Additionally, they are ideal for piping systems used to transport gases or liquids under extreme pressure or with corrosive properties.
Spectacle Blind Flanges often called spectacle flanges or figure 8 blinds, are specialized flanges used in pipelines and piping systems to temporarily or permanently block off a piece of a pipe. Two metal discs joined by a central piece make up the flanges of spectacle blinds.
Ring Type Joint (RTJ) Flanges are used in high-temperature and high-pressure applications, primarily in the oil and gas sector. A metal ring gasket fits into a carefully crafted groove on the face of flanges used in Ring Type Joints. Usually, soft iron, low-carbon steel, or other materials appropriate for a particular purpose are used to create the metal ring gasket..
