What is a socket welding flange, and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

The socket welding flange is called (SW flange), and the basic shape of the socket flange is the same as the flat welding flange with neck. A socket is opened in the inner hole of the flange, and the pipe is inserted into the socket and welded. Weld the weld ring on the back of the flange. The gap between the socket flange and the grass groove is easy to corrode. If the internal weld is welded, corrosion can be avoided. The fatigue strength of the socket flange welded on the inner and outer sides is 5% greater than that of the flat welded flange, and the static strength is the same. When using this socket flange, its inner diameter must match the inner diameter of the pipe. Socket flanges are only suitable for pipes with a nominal diameter of 50 or less. Plug welding flange sealing surface shape: convex surface (RF), concave and convex surface (MFM), tongue surface (TG), ring connection surface (RJ) socket welding flange application range: boiler pressure vessel, petroleum, chemical industry, shipbuilding, pharmaceutical , Metallurgy, machinery and elbow stamping industries. Socket welding flanges are usually used in pipelines with PN≤10.0 MPa and DN≤50. Advantages and disadvantages of socket welding flanges and butt welding: socket welding is usually used for small pipes with a diameter less than DN40 and is more economical. Butt welding is usually used for parts above DN40. Socket welding is the process of first inserting a socket and then welding (for example, there is a flange called a socket flange, which is a projection welding flange, which is a connection when connecting to other parts (such as valves). Butt welding method The connection form of flange and pipe welding. Socket welding is usually to insert the pipe into the flange and weld it. Butt welding uses butt welding flanges to weld the pipe to the butt surface. Although X-ray inspection is not possible, butt welding can accept butt joints. Therefore, it is recommended to use butt welding flanges to improve welding inspection requirements. Butt welding usually requires higher requirements than socket welding and post-welding. The quality is also good, but the inspection methods are stricter. Butt welding requires X-ray inspection. Socket welding can be used for magnetic particle or permeability testing (carbon powder, penetrating carbon steel) such as stainless steel). If the fluid in the pipeline does not require high welding requirements, socket welding is recommended. The connection type that is convenient for testing is mainly small Diameter valves and pipes are used for pipe joints and pipe welding. Small diameter pipes are usually thin, prone to edge dislocation and ablation, and are difficult to butt welding. They are suitable for socket welding and socket welding. Welding sockets are often used under high pressure due to their reinforcing effect, but socket welding also has disadvantages. One is that the stress condition after welding is not good and it is difficult to completely melt. The trend is: there are gaps in the piping system, so it is not suitable for crevice corrosion-sensitive media and piping systems with high cleanliness requirements; socket welding is used; there are ultra-high pressure pipes. Even in small diameter pipes, it has a large wall thickness, and socket welding can be avoided as much as possible by butt welding.
