How is the flange used in mechanical design?

Any connection parts that are bolted at the periphery of two planes and closed at the same time are generally called " flange ", such as the connection of ventilation ducts, this type of parts can be called "flange parts".
When the pump and valve are connected to the pipeline, the parts of these equipment are also made into the corresponding flange shape, also known as flange connection. However, this connection is only a part of the equipment, such as the connection between the flange and the water pump, it is difficult to call the water pump a "flange-type part". Relatively small ones, such as valves, can be called "flange parts".
In pipeline engineering, flanges are mainly used for pipe connection. For pipelines to be connected, a flange is installed for various types. Low-pressure pipelines can use wire flanges, and welding flanges for pressures of 4 kg or more. Add a sealing point between the two flanges and tighten with bolts. Different pressure flanges have different thicknesses and use different bolts.
The flange is a disc-shaped part, which is most common in pipeline engineering. The flanges are used in pairs.
