The main component in the manufacturing of carbon steel flanges is iron and carbon steel. These Forged Carbon Steel Flanges have been used to make the connection of valves, pumps, or other equipment. Grade of steel changes on material and its carbon content.
The different grades of carbon steel flanges are ASTM A105, ASTM A182, ASTM A694, ASTM A516, ASTM A350. 1% to 2% is the weight of carbon in the carbon steel flanges. The increase of carbon content in the element makes steel sturdier and stiffer. It makes things less ductile. Higher carbon can reduce weldability if not treated with high heat.
Carbon steel A105 Flanges
Carbon steel A105 flanges are forged steel piping components that can be used for valves, flanges and fittings in pressure systems at a higher temperature. You can operate on carbon steel flanges between 0 degrees to 550 degrees.
This is suitable in hydrocarbon and marine engineering processes. It has been used in nuclear power plants, oil and gas equipment, valves manufacturing, petrochemical plants, pump manufacturing plants, and many other places.
Carbon steel A350 LF2 Low-Temperature Flanges
Carbon steel A350 LF2 flanges are made with ring-rolled carbon flanges, valves, low alloy steel forged, and forged fittings for low temperature. These flanges have extensive durability, strength, pressure resistance.
This type of carbon steel flange provides machinability when it is hardened, forged. It provides moderate strength. It is mainly in high demand because of its higher hardness. Real Engineering is one of the best Buttweld Fittings Manufacturer in India.
Carbon steel low Alloy A182 Flanges
This grade of carbon steel is helpful for stainless steel pipe flanges, valves, and other high-temperature service. This type of steel is suitable for low corrosion applications. These flanges do not wear out quickly. Use of these flanges is widespread mainly used in chemical, paper, petroleum industries.
The features of these flanges types are most suitable as it stays for a longer period and does not require repairing after installation. If you purchase these products from the proper place then it can ensure durability.
Carbon Steel A694 Flanges
This is the most carbon stress-reliant steel flange material. It is suitable in the high-pressure transmission of gas and oil piping. The products made with this steel are used in high yield service.
The manufacturers of these steel need to build steel that can withstand high, cryogenic temperatures. The increased carbon content with heat treatment makes it less ductile. If there is a lack of heat treatment then it can reduce the ability to weld.
Forged carbon steel Flanges
There are different ways to manufacture flanges. The most prominent way is casting and forging. Flanges are plate-like devices that can be added at the end of the fitting, valve, pipe that can put a piping system altogether.
The manufacturers develop flanges that can be used in pipes and fittings. Forged steel has the superb mechanical property that any other product and it has great use for industrial purposes. It is often used with an attachment of a valve at the pipe end. It is functional for inlets and outlets.
