B. Types of 4″ Pipe Flanges

  1. Weld Neck Flanges (4″ WN):
    • Design: 4″ weld neck flanges have a long, tapered neck that seamlessly connects with the 4-inch pipe. They feature a raised face for enhanced sealing.
    • Applications: Ideal for high-pressure and high-temperature applications due to their structural support and stress distribution capabilities.
  2. Slip-On Flanges (4″ SO):
    • Design: 4″ slip-on flanges slide over the 4-inch pipe, with a bore slightly larger than the pipe’s outer diameter. Typically, they are welded only on the outside and come with a raised face.
    • Applications: Commonly used in low-pressure and non-critical applications where quick and cost-effective installation is required.
  3. Blind Flanges (4″ BL):
    • Design: 4″ blind flanges have no bore and are used to seal the end of a 4-inch piping system. They feature a flat and solid design with no openings.
    • Applications: Primarily employed to cap off or close the end of a 4-inch pipe or vessel. They are often used during pressure testing or system isolation.
  4. Threaded Flanges (4″ TH):
    • Design: 4″ threaded flanges have internal threads, allowing them to be screwed onto 4-inch pipes or fittings.
    • Applications: Suitable for low-pressure and non-critical applications where a threaded connection is preferred.
  5. Socket Weld Flanges (4″ SW):
    • Design: 4″ socket weld flanges feature a socket-like design that permits the insertion of the 4-inch pipe, followed by fillet welding on the outside.
    • Applications: Commonly used in small-bore, high-pressure applications, such as those found in the petrochemical industry.
  6. Lap Joint Flanges (4″ LJ):
    • Design: 4″ lap joint flanges consist of two parts: a flat, stub-end, and a backing flange. They allow free rotation around the axis of the stub-end.
    • Applications: Typically utilized in applications requiring frequent disassembly and reassembly, such as piping systems with regular maintenance needs.

C. Materials and Specifications of 4″ Pipe Flanges

  1. Materials: 4″ pipe flanges are available in various materials to suit diverse applications, including carbon steel, stainless steel, alloy steel, and non-ferrous materials like brass and copper.
  2. Sizing Options: The sizing of 4″ pipe flanges is based on the nominal diameter of the pipe, which is 4 inches (101.6 millimeters). It’s essential to choose the correct size to ensure a proper fit and sealing in your piping system.
  3. Pressure Ratings: Flanges are rated for different pressure classes (e.g., 150#, 300#, 600#, etc.), indicating their ability to withstand specific pressure levels, typically measured in pounds per square inch (psi).
  4. Facing Types: Flanges may feature different facing types, such as raised face (RF), flat face (FF), or ring-type joint (RTJ), tailored to accommodate various sealing methods and specific application requirements.

Understanding the different types of 4″ pipe flanges, their materials, and specifications is essential for selecting the right flanges to meet the specific needs of your 4-inch pipe systems. Whether it’s for high-pressure applications, quick installation, or routine maintenance, choosing the appropriate 4″ pipe flange type and material is crucial for ensuring the efficiency and reliability of your piping systems.
