Lap Joint Flange
Stainless Steel Lap joint flanges are similar to slip-on flanges, except they are not welded to the piping. A lap joint sub-end is employed to pipes, which is subsequently secured by a lap joint flange. In comparison to other flanges, this flange is made of low-carbon steel. The main advantage of this type of flange is that it can rotate around the stub end. This allows for easy alignment during installation. In the case of stainless steel, it lowers piping costs. These flanges are reusable and simple to disassemble. Stainless steel lap joint flanges are widely used in petroleum and medical industries.
