What is spade and ring spacer?
The two parts of the spectacle blind flange could be separated to be used,the blind part of the spectacle flange is called spade or paddle,it is used to block the flow fluid in the piping system.The opening part of spectacle flange is called spacer or ring spacer,when it is worked in the two flanges,it will not block the fluid running.Commonly the spader or spacer should have a section of steel handle for control easily.

Spades and spacers are used for pipeline systems that do not require frequent maintenance,or for large-caliber pipelines.It can weigh hundreds of pounds depending on pipe diameter and pipe pressure grade.In order to alleviate unnecessary pipeline load,we usually choose two separate parts, namely spades and spacers instead of spectacle blind flange.
Spades and spacers are often used interchangeably in pipeline maintenance. Loosen all bolts, temporarily remove some bolts, spades and spacers can substitute each other. After replacing the gasket, the bolt can be reassembled and tightened. When spades or spacers are installed between flanges, we can not see whether it is spades or spacers.As a result, special markings are usually done on the handle or having separate designs.Customers usually provide their own technical parameters.
