Nipoflange Definition and Details
The weldoflange and nipoflange is a combination of a welding neck flange and a supposedly weldolet or nipolet. The 2 components are manufactured in one piece, and not welded. These flanges are primarily in branchconnections.
On the website of Promat BD you can find more information about the various performances, dimensions etc.. Furthermore, they have an expanded range of special flanges, fittings and branch connections.
A nipoflange is used in the pipe industry like a weldolet or a nipolet for a 90° branch connection. A nipoflange is a combination of weldolet, nipolet and flange.
Two different pipe branch connections
On the run pipe side a nipoflange is designed like a weldolet. That means the branch connection on the run pipe side is a welding connection. On the other side there it has a flange connection. The flange connection can be designed according to customers requirements (acc. To DIN or ANSI).
A nipoflange similar to ANSI B 16.9 or MSS-SP 97 is manufactured from forged material. That means a nipoflange is a forged fitting without welding seam.
WAZ (acceptance test certificate)
Of course, you may obtain a standard cert. 3.1 with each delivery. Upon request, we are able to deliver a cert 3.2 (normally TüV or other inspection institutions). In the cert. 3.1, the chemical consistenc and the physical characteristics of the material are listed.
Standard and special materials
Anthermo is able to deliver nipoflanges in standard materials. Upon request special materials are also deliverable.
