It is a good idea for you to become familiar with all the components that make it possible for you to transport water to different locations. One such component is a flange pipe. This nifty piece of equipment is shaped just like a circular disc or ring. You can use it to connect pipes or sewer lines to increase the strength of their connections. You don't have to use this appendage to add more connections, and you can also use it to block off passageways as well.
Knowing when and how to use a flange pipe can save you a lot of trouble in the long run. In order to make sure it situated properly on the line, you need to use a gasket in between the two connectors on the fittings to create a together and stronger seal. You can have these pieces of hardware custom made so that they can fit any size lines. Keep in mind that the sizes you specify need to be in regulation with the building codes and guidelines for you location. Some sizes are better suited to withstand certain temperatures. There are several types of these pipe connectors that you should be aware of.
The slip-on version of this piece of hardware can actually be used to slide over the piece that you want to secure. The inside of the fitting is made so that it is slightly larger than the outside. This makes it possible for the hardware to fit over the sewer line and still have a tight fit. Many hardware stores will have these connectors in the ring or hub section.
The weld neck version of these connectors is used to attach lines and pipes. In order to completely secure these pieces onto the lines to make a tight seal, they need to be welded together. By welding the connectors onto the lines, this reduces the amount of pressure and tensile stress that can cause breakage and complications later on.
The blind flange pipe is one that can be used at the end of pipes and sewer lines. These are used to completely seal off the ends so that there is no loss of pressure. This piece of hardware is great for projects that require future work. In the event that some work needs to be done on the inside of the sewer line, the blind pipe flange makes it possible to do so without completely disrupting the pressure of the whole system.
The thread pipe version of this piece of hardware fitting is designed so that it appears to be similar to the slip on fitting, however it has tapered threads. This makes it easy to use with sewer lines that have threads. It is not necessary to weld these connectors onto the lines since the threads make it possible to secure the pieces together tightly.
Keep in mind that there are more sizes and types of the flange pipe for you to use. Pay special attention to the building requirements and sizes of the lines you will be using in your projects.
