What is spectacle blind flange?
Spectacle blind flange also called figure-8 blind flange.The “8” character blind plate is named for its shape,similar like an 8-character.It is used to isolate or connect piping systems. The “8” blind flange is a steel plate with fixed thickness divided into two plates.Two plates are connected by flat steel,one of which is a solid plate and the other is a hollow ring. The inner aperture of the plate is the same as that of the flange.
The two parts of the spectacle blind flange could be separated to be used,the blind part of the spectacle flange is called spader 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.

How to use spectacle blind flange?
In pipeline system,spectacle blind flange usually needs to be isolated from other facilities or devices.Usually,it is located in the open position so that the fluid can pass through the pipeline.When it is in the closed position,the pipeline is closed and the fluid is blocked.Maintenance of the pipeline system is one of the reasons that it rotates to the closed position.There is a drill hole in its connecting web,when loosening and disassembling some bolts,spectacle blind can rotate between flanges.After replacing the gasket, the bolts can be reassembled and fastened.
