Flange

Flange connections create the best possible seal between two surfaces to prevent gases or liquids from leaking

Flanges create the best possible seal between two surfaces to prevent gases or liquids from
leaking. Flanges are also often used for power transfer. The flatness of the connecting
surfaces is very important for the proper functioning of flanges.

Flanges can be found in:

  • Diesel motors
  • Compressors
  • Cranes
  • Tower segments of wind turbines.

 

If flanges are not mounted precisely, malfunctions can occur. Leaks result in loss of pressure
or raw materials as well as risk of explosion. The seals on flange connections are subject to
higher wear and must be replaced frequently. Tensions can cause vibrations and therefore
also material damage.
