An extremely strong precipitation hardened stainless steelSlip on Flange

17-4 PH slip on flanges are made from a precipitation hardened stainless steel most known for its exceptional strength and its ability to maintain its mechanical properties to 600°F. Compared to 316 stainless steel, 17-4 PH slip on flanges yield strength is up over 4 times greater. When compared to Duplex 2205 slip on flanges, the yield strength of 17-4 PH can be up to 2-½ times greater.

17-4 slip on flanges are available in 8 different aged (precipitation hardened) conditions offering a variety of mechanical properties (see below).

17-4PH Slip on Flange Features & Benefits

Slip on Flange

17-4 PH slip on flanges are similar to the socket weld flange but without the socket shoulder. When using a socket weld flange, the pipe rests against this internal shoulder. Since a slip on flange does not have shoulder, the pipe can slide completely through the flange hub and is free to spin. 

Advantages

  • Typically lower in price than weld-neck flange, yet welding costs can be more.
  • There is a reduced need to cut the pipe length accurately, making it easier to install.
  • The slip on flange is free to spin on the pipe for easy bolt alignment.

Disadvantages

  • They require two fillet welds: one fillet weld at the hub of the flange and a second weld at the inside diameter of the flange near the flange face.
  • Though they can be used for high temperature and pressure applications, they typically are not as other flange types give a more secure joint.
