The slip on flange has a low hub and slips onto the pipe prior to welding. Welding is carried out on the inside and outside to provide sufficient strength and prevent leakage. Slip on flanges are all bored slightly larger than the OD of the matching pipe to allow for the welds to hold. They are many times preferred over weldnecks due to their lower cost, though net installation cost is often the same due to the additional welding.
Slip on pipe flanges are typically provided with a raised or flat face. When a raised face is necessary for slip on pipe flanges, the standard height is 1/16" for slip on pipe flanges under 400#. For slip on pipe flanges of 400# and up, the standard slip on pipe flange raised face height is 1/4".
Our slip-on flanges are available with raised, flat, or RTJ faces, and are also available in orifice configurations.
