Slip-on flanges are designed to slide over the outside diameter of a pipe. They are welded on both the inside and outside of the flange face to prevent leakage. Though slip-on flanges are thinner than most other flanges, they are strong, dependable and cost-effective, and are commonly used in systems that require frequent cleanings or inspections. Use with ring type gaskets increases the pressure capability of the joint. World Wide Metric offers raised face slip-on flanges according to EN 1092-1/12 and ANSI/ASME B16.5 standards, in both carbon steel and stainless steel.
