An extremely strong precipitation hardened stainless steelThreaded flange Revised

17-4 PH threaded 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 threaded flanges yield strength is up over 4 times greater. When compared to Duplex 2205 threaded flanges, the yield strength of 17-4 PH can be up to 2-½ times greater.

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

17-4PH Threaded Flange Features & Benefits

combined threaded flange image

17-4PH threaded flanges have a tapered female thread to join the male threads of a pipe in order to create a tight seal. This type of flange is most ideal when post weld heat treatment is not possible in hazardous, flammable or explosive applications where welding is too dangerous. 17-4PH threaded flanges are also convenient in pilot processes whose configuration is often changed.

Threaded Flange Advangtages

  • The main benefit is that that threaded seal eliminates the need for welding.
  • As they do not require welding they save time and money to install.
  • Allow for connections to be made in dangerous, explosive applications where welding is not possible.
  • Useful connection in materials that are difficult to create a successful and strong weld.
  • Ideal for connecting small diameter pipes.
  • Systems could be easily reconfigured.

Threaded Flange Disadvantages

  • They are not suitable where high temperatures, frequent cyclic conditions or bending stresses are likely in applications.
