Benchmark has supplied and fabricated a wide variety of piping products in support of the Oil & Gas Industry, LNG Plant Construction, Marine Services and Pulp / Paper Plants.
The variations of assemblies we have deployed are enormous, however typically a piping assemble consists of the following basic components:
Piping, Flanges, Valves, Fittings, Stud Bolts, Gaskets, Isolation Kits and Pipe Spools AKA Flanged Spools.
1. Blind flange
2. Stud Bolt
4. Other flange
Blind Flanges are manufactured without a bore and used to blank off the ends of piping, Valves and pressure vessel openings.
From the standpoint of internal pressure and bolt loading, blind flanges, particularly in the larger sizes, are the most highly stressed flange types.
However, most of these stresses are bending types near the center, and since there is no standard inside diameter, these flanges are suitable for higher pressure temperature applications.
