Flanges transport and packaging
The metal flange should be greased before storage for a long time, and the storage space should be dry to prevent rust.Each flange should be stored separately.Because of the different materials and batches of metal materials, contact storage will accelerate corrosion and rust due to electrochemical effects.
When transporting the flange, pay attention to the protection of wooden strips, straw or plastic foam.The wrapping should be firm. Each flange should be packaged separately.The products of 3 meters or more should pay attention to the transportation when ordering the contract.The height limit of a highway or a general viaduct is 4.5 meters.The flange itself is 3 meters in diameter,and then the height of the truck itself is about 1.5 meters,it will not pass.If transported horizontally,the 3M large flange will also exceed the width of the carriageway,so it is a problem whether it is transported vertically or horizontally.If the problem of distribution is not solved well,it will cause certain difficulties in transportation.
Extra large flanges are to be completed by a segmented production process.Then splicing to the construction site.Many customers still don’t know why they need to go to the construction site to splicing when ordering large-diameter flanges.This creates a splicing flange,which means that large-diameter flanges will not be transported if they are not spliced.
A batch of slip on flanges recently produced by our company was sent to Katar,wrapped in plastic film and ready for delivery,the so flanges are 18″ and the nominal pressure from PN16 to PN48.We can supply all types forged flanges products such as weld neck flange,slip on flange,blind flange,lap joint flange,threaded flange,spectacle blind flange,orifice flange etc.The flange products material we supply are carbon steel,stainless steel,alloy steel.If you want to know more about our products,please contact us:firstname.lastname@example.org
