Under­standing flange connec­tions as a system — avoiding leaks

Their expertise in permanent flange connec­tions helps to prevent leaks in pipelines.

Insuf­fi­cient knowledge of the load-bearing capacity and special properties of collars and flanges often leads to planning and purchasing errors for flange connec­tions. Contra­dictory state­ments on quality and compat­i­bility make the selection of suitable flanges and collars even more difficult.

In a 3‑part video series, we use practical examples to explain what you should consider when selecting flange connections.

In our 3‑part video series you will learn:

✅Why it is so important to under­stand flange connec­tions as systems

✅ Whether flange and HDPE connec­tions are a risk for leaks

✅What the challenges of flange connec­tions with steel parts are

Because a flange connection that is overloaded today can mean that it will leak in a month or two years.

Over 40 years of experience in plastic-compatible design

Since its foundation, Reinert-Ritz has been involved in the devel­opment and manufacture of solutions for plant and pipeline construction that are suitable for plastics and pressure classes.

Flange connec­tions are therefore one of our core compe­tencies. We have developed flanges that are highly reliable and solve many problems in PE 100 pipeline construction.

T-Stück einer Löschwasserleitung von Airbus. Flanschsysteme sichern den Erfolg.

When planning the extin­guishing water pipe for the newly built Airbus site in Hamburg, the contractor was convinced by the advan­tages of a PE pipe with corre­sponding special flanges on all fittings.

Focus on Tees

A waste­water pressure pipeline was planned and imple­mented in Boras, Sweden. The T‑pieces were used here as aeration and venti­lation points.

A drinking water transport pipe made of PE was planned with individual special and fixed flanges. The pipeline also provides an inlet to a waterworks.

A reliable flange connection saves you a lot of effort and money. 

Higher operating pressures with standard flange connections

If conven­tional flange connec­tions are subjected to higher pressures, they quickly reach their limits. In higher pressure ranges, forces and expan­sions occur which often lead to tilting of the collars and in particular the sealing surfaces of the joint. There is a risk that the flange connection will leak or fail completely.
