Flange connection is to fix two pipes, pipe fittings or equipment on a flange plate respectively, add flange pads between the two flange plates, and fasten them together with bolts to complete the connection. Some pipe fittings and equipment have their own flanges, which are also flange connections. Flange connection is an important connection method for pipeline construction.

The flange connection is easy to use and can withstand greater pressure. In industrial pipelines, flange connections are widely used. In the home, the pipe diameter is small, and it is low pressure, and the flange connection is invisible. If it is in a boiler room or production site, flanged pipes and equipment are everywhere.

It consists of a pair of flanges, a gasket and several bolts and nuts. The gasket is placed between the sealing surfaces of the two flanges. After tightening the nut, the specific pressure on the gasket surface reaches a certain value and deforms and fills up the unevenness of the sealing surface to make the connection tight and leak-proof. Flange connection is a detachable connection. According to the connected parts, it can be divided into container flange and pipe flange.
