Stainless Steel Stub End
The stainless steel stub end is also named stainless steel lap joint stub end, which walmi supply is butt-welding pipe fitting. The main function of stub end is to connect pipes together in a piping system along with a stainless steel lap joint flange/backing flange. The stainless steel stub ends are used in conjunction with stainless steel lap joint flanges/backing flanges. The stub end is welded to the pipe which it is to be fitted, while the lap joint flange slip directly over the pipe and is free to rotate around the stub end.
Stainless steel lap joint stub end and lap joint pipe flanges are often used in piping systems which require frequent dismantling for inspection, cleaning or replacement. While bolting pressure is transmitted to the gasket from the lap joint flange against the back of the pipe lap to produce a seal, the pressure holding capacity of lap joint flange is comparatively lower, which is often used in lower pressure requirements.
