At the time of manufacturing flanges, factories use different variety of materials as per the requirement of client. Each material is different to an extent and is perfect for specific applications. Great Steel and Metals, the leading exporter of super duplex flanges in India is providing details on the material used in the flanges manufacturing
- Alloy Steel
Alloy steel is an iron-based product with a least percent of chromium in it. The materials which are included in alloy steel are silicon, copper, manganese, vanadium, tungsten, molybdenum, and nickel. It is stronger, harder and high resistant than carbon steels. It is used in manufacturing pipe connectors. Below are various industries which uses alloy steel :
* Oil and gas
* Wind energy
* Industrial machinery
- Carbon Steel
Different grades of carbon steel are used by manufacturers to produce flanges depending on the wear resistance, impact strength, hardness and ductility required. Low carbon steel is ductile and strong because it contains the least amount of carbon. Many automotive components including transmission covers, fenders, pans, and frames are being made with the use of carbon steel.
- Tool Steel
Tool steel ingots or billets contain more carbon through which flanges are made. Such ingots are prepared with the combination of iron. Such combination of tool steel and iron make steel more tough and impact resistant. Tool steel is used to create production machines and equipments for the manufacturing industry.
- Stainless steel
Stainless steel is one of the most common manufacturing materials which are used in food service, medical tools and other tools. In addition to this, steel is used in furnaces and ovens and are resistant to high temperatures. Applications that are highly corrosion resistant and require frequent cleaning for that steel product “austenitic” is being used. Duplex and “martensitic” stainless steel flanges possess high resistance to cracks and pitting.
- Super alloys
Super alloys are resistant with high temperature and are made up of materials like nickel and cobalt. They can withstand to high heat and acid corrosion while exhibiting wearability. Super alloys are great for:
* Pump parts
* Piping systems
* Aerospace parts
* Oil and gas, turbines
Aluminium is the most common metal used in manufacturing industries. They possess various qualities like lightweight, malleability, and excellent weight-to-strength ratio. Along with this, they have a microscopic oxide coating on their surfaces which make them highly corrosion resistant. Automotive frames, marine equipment, architectural frames and wheels are made up of aluminium alloys.
Titanium is light weight and is highly durable in nature. It is highly resistant to high temperature and is a perfect choice for superior aircraft construction. It is considered as the good material for aircraft engines. Due to its exceptional properties, it is considered as one of the most expensive manufacturing material
Copper flanges are non magnetic and deliver conductivity. Such flanges have the capacity to bear higher loads in comparison to others and can withstand. with high temperatures. Copper flanges are used electrical components and in pump and valve parts.
