Socket Welding Flange

Socket Weld Flange

The socket welding flange is similar to a slip-on flange except it has a bore and a counterbore dimension.

The counterbore is slightly larger than the O.D. of the matching pipe, allowing the pipe to be inserted into the flange similar to a slip-on flange. The diamter of the smaller bore is the same as the I.D. of the matchine pipe A restriction is built into the bottom of the bore which sets as a shoulder for the pipe to rest on. This is eliminates any restriction in flow when using a socket welding flange.

The flanges we supply mainly include Welding Neck, Blind, Slip-on, Lap-Joint, Socket, Spectacle, Forged, Reducing and Threaded.
