Hastelloy® fasteners & flanges are in stock and available now - such as Hastelloy C276, which is generally considered a versatile and highly corrosion resistant alloy. Hastelloy slip on flanges have excellent corrosion resistance in both oxidizing and reducing media which makes it well suited for a variety of strong corrosive applications. Hastelloy slip on flanges also have exceptional resistance to both sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid.
Because Hastelloy slip on flanges resist some of the most severe media, Hastelloy slip on flanges are often utilized in chemical processing applications where acid chlorides, solvents, formic and acetic acids, acetic anhydride, wet chlorine gas, hypochlorites, chlorine solutions and phosphoric acid are used. For chemical processing applications, Hastelloy C276 is the most common grade and one of the most corrosion resistant nickel alloys - exceeding that of most other nickel alloy grades like Inconel or Monel.

Hastelloy C22 alloy, UNS N06022, has better overall corrosion resistance in oxidizing corrosives than C-276 and Inconel 625 alloys due to the higher chromium content. Outstanding resistance to localized corrosion and excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking. This alloy has limited availability and can be made into fastener in larger diameters only (1/2" and greater in size). Select the following links for more details about Hastelloy C22 Bolts, Screws, and Flanges.

Hastelloy C2000 alloy, UNS N06200, is a corrosion resistant alloy with excellent resistance to uniform corrosion in oxidizing or re-ducing environments. Due to the addition of copper and the high content of chromium, it has enhanced corrosion resistance to sulfuric acid and process streams contaminated with ferric ions. In addition it has excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking and superior resistance to localized corrosion as compared to C-276 alloy. This alloy has limited availability and can be made into sizes only 1/2" and greater is size for fasteners.

Hastelloy 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.
- 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.
- 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.
