What is a Hydraulic Flange?
Hydraulic flanges connect tubes, pipes, or hoses to components (pumps, valves, etc.) to form a leak-free fluid control system. Flanged joints consisted of two flanges bolted with a gasket between them to provide a tight seal.
Hydraulic flanges are preferred over other fitting types for several reasons. The bolted design eliminates the need for threaded connectors, and allow for quick and easy assembly. Additionally, the simple design allows for installation in tight places, as well as easy maintenance.
Where Are Hydraulic Flanges Used?
Hydraulic flanges are found in fluid systems in a wide variety of industries. Because of their ease of installation, easy maintenance, and overall durability, they are found widely in the piping industry.
