Expander Flange

Written by Matt Milbury on . Posted in Pipe Flange

expander flgAn expander flange, abbreviated as EXPF, is similar to a weld neck flange but with the hub expanding to a larger size (one or two sizes).  If you have limited space or just need to connect to a larger pipe size, it provides a convenient way for equipment, pumps and valves.  It can replace the use of a flange and reducer.  Pressure ratings and dimensions are in accordance with ANSI/ASME B16.5. This flange has a raised face.
