Threaded flanges (TH Flanges) look very similar to Slip-On flanges but the main difference is that the threaded flange has been was bored out to match a specific pipe inside diameter. The backside of this center opening is then threaded with the relevant-sized tapered pipe thread.

Threaded Flanges (TH Flanges) are used for special circumstances with their main advantage being that they can be attached to the pipe without welding. Threaded flanges are threaded in the bore which match an external thread on the pipe. These threads are tapered in order to create a seal between the threaded flange and the pipe as the tapers approach the same diameter. Sometimes a seal weld is also used together with the threaded connection. This special type of flange is generally used for high pressure, yet smaller diameter applications. Obviously, the larger the flange is, the harder the ability to machine a thread would be. Threaded flanges are also not a good choice for a system that has a high level of torque.

Uses of threaded flanges (TH Flanges) :

  • Threaded flanges can be fitted to pipes of various sizes without welding and this is one chief benefit for which these flanges are highly demanded.
  • They can be used in extremely high pressure applications, particularly at or near atmospheric temperature, where the necessary post weld heat treatment is not possible.
  • They are ideal for small diameter piping applications.
  • They are economical and time saving devices.
  • These threaded flanges are normally designed for non-cyclic applications.
  • The flanges are suitable to be used in applications where welding is hazardous.
  • They can be used in highly explosive areas.

The various types of threaded flanges (TH Flanges) are as follows:

  • Plain Threaded Flanges
  • Female Threaded Flanges
