flanges and fittings

flanges and fittings

The high chromium and molybdenum content of super duplex stainless steel flanges and fittings or UNS S32750/S32760 makes it extremely resistant to uniform corrosion by organic acids like formic and acetic acid. UNS S32750 Super Duplex Fittings and Flange also provide excellent resistance to inorganic acids, especially those containing chlorides.

Specification of Flange 

The specified ASTM Standard Specification for Wrought Ferritic- Austenitic super duplex stainless steel flanges is ASTM A182 with manufacturing standard such as ANSI/ASME B16.5, B16.48, BS4504, B 16.47 Series A & B, BS 10, EN-1092, DIN, etc.

According to application and uses in pipes and tubes Duplex  S32750/S32760  flanges are broadly grouped into different sort, for example,  Welding Neck Flange(WNF) & Long Welding Neck Flange(LWNF), Slip-on Flange(SOF), Lap Joint Flange(LJW), Blind Flange, Socket Welding Flange (SWF), Threaded Flange(THW), Plate Flange.

SS Super Duplex Flange for the most part has different  face type, for example, Flat Face (FF), Raised Face (RF), Ring Type Joint (RTJ), blind flange, with various class rating as 50 LBS, 300 LBS, 600 LBS, 900 LBS, 1500 LBS, 2500 LBS, DIN Standard ND-6,10, 16,din 2.4856 , 25, 40 & ANSI B16.5.

Specification of Fittings

The Specification for Wrought Ferritic- Austenitic super duplex pipe fittings is ASTM A 815, having Specific manufacturing Standards as ASME/ANSI B16.9, ASME B16.28, MSS-SP-43. 

SS Super Duplex grade Fittings are categorically available are Elbow, Reducer, Tee, Coupling, Bend, Stub End, Cap, Nipple, Washer, Cross, Union etc which are available in different  types such as Welded, Seamless and Fabricated having thickness range from 5s, 10s, 40s, 80s, 10, 20, 40, STD, 60, 80, XS, 100, 120, 140, 160, XXS available with NACE MR 01-75

Applications

Super duplex S32750/S32760 flanges and fittings are often used in desalination plants, seawater piping and high pressure RO plants, structural and mechanical components. Super duplex S32750/S32760 flanges and fittings are also used in Oil and Gas industry equipment, Heat exchangers, offshore platforms, process and service water systems.
