Long Weld Neck Flanges
As compared to regular neck weld flanges, long weld neck flanges are designed with long necks for pipe fitting. These pipe-fitting flanges are integral self-reinforcing & function similarly to neck weld flanges. Stainless Steel long-neck weld flanges are most suitable for high-pressure & high-temperature piping in the gas & oil industries. These flanges are mainly designed to be used in place of weld neck flanges for a bolt-up connection to the vessel. The design of the long weld neck flanges helps in transfer to the base on the connection of the vessel. It has square cuts at the ends that are made to replace the pipes. Long-weld neck flanges are the lightest wall connection. These flanges are made from forged carbon & stainless steel.
