Different grades of Carbon Steel Blind Flanges Available in Market

Flanges are useful in blocking off a particular portion of a pipe or a nozzle on a vessel. Here, the carbon steel flanges contain carbon, which gives tensile strength ductility to the product. Here, in carbon steel blind flanges, the carbon is present in a higher amount, which reduces the product’s ductility. Carbon steel blind flanges show the presence of higher carbon compared to stainless steel. The high carbon gives a lower melting point to flanges and makes them malleable also, they offer better heat distribution ability. Carbon Steel Blind Flanges are useful in permanent connections as they are tough and show high resistance to wear and tear. ASTM A3015, ASTM A182, ASTM A694, and ASTM A105 are the most common grades available for Carbon Steel Blind Flanges.

Carbon Steel A105 Flanges

These grades of flanges undergo process of forging and are components of forged carbon steel piping. These components are applicable in fittings, flanges, valves, and others. Operational temperature range of these flanges is 500 to 550 Degree. These flanges play a crucial role in hydro-carbon, marine engineering, heat exchangers, pump manufacturing, chemical and petrochemical plants. Besides, there are various types of this grade of flanges is of various types including Plate Flanges, Weld Neck Flanges, and Blind Flanges.

Carbon Steel A350 LF2 Flanges

The Carbon Steel A350 LF2 Flanges are available in many forms as ring-rolled flanges, valves, low-alloy steel forged, and forged fittings. The grade of carbon steel blind flanges is widely known for its temperature and pressure endurance, high strength, and persistence. Besides, these Carbon Steel A350 LF2 Flanges provide maximum machining ability if annealed under an appropriate temperature range. These products are normalized or forged, thus gaining moderate strength and offer leakage proof connection at a low cost. Due to its more magnificent hardness property, these flanges are usually more in demand than standard austenitic stainless steel.

Carbon Steel A350 LF2 Flanges

The Flanges are available in many grades and forms as carbon and ring-rolled flanges, valves, and low-alloy steel forged. Besides, forged fittings are also suitable for low-temperatures. These grades of flanges are famous for its temperature and pressure resistance capacity, toughness, and endurance. The Carbon Steel A350 LF2 Flanges grants the highest machining ability after annealing and normalized forging.

Carbon Steel A182 Flanges

These carbon steel flanges are applicable in stainless steel pipe flanges, rolled alloy, forged valves, and forged fittings.
