Blind Flanges Main Features and Specifications Table

The blind flange is mainly used at the end of the pipeline to play a secret role but also can be used in the pipeline that needs to be repaired or overhauled to do the role of blocking.

Commonly there are round blinds, square blinds, and figure of 8 blinds, etc. If you have the need we can customize the shape of the blinds to fit your pipeline according to your requirements.

The difference between the blind and the flange is that there is no hole in the middle, so the medium can not pass, while the flange has a hole in the middle mainly to connect the two pipelines, the medium can be normal through the blind is mainly to play the role of blocking.

A blind plate is a plate-like the flange, there are bolt holes, but there is no hole in the center, installed in the pipeline, the pipeline medium can not pass, and the pipeline will be sealed, which mainly play a role in blocking the pipeline, mainly used in the end of the pipeline, or temporary need for maintenance.
