What are Mild steel flanges?
Mild steel alloy roughly contains carbon between 0.05 to 0.25% in their chemical composition. Thus, it can be said that the Mild steel flanges have a low carbon content, which is why it has high malleability and weldability. The Mild steel slip on flanges have high machinability but low tensile strength compared to high carbon steel or other alloy steel. The Mild steel exhaust flanges come with high iron content and it has a ferrite microstructure, which is why it is magnetic in nature. Due to the negligible presence of other alloying elements, the Mild steel blank flanges are relatively affordable compared to the other grades of stainless steel. The Mild steel v band flanges have high toughness, and they are used in automobiles, construction, and various electrical equipment.

At what temperature does Mild steel flanges get weak?
MS pipe flanges can withstand temperatures up to 425 degrees C before it starts to soften. It will lose half its strength between the temperatures 600 degrees C and 650 degrees C.

Manufacturing process ASME b16.5 mild steel flanges
To manufacture the ASME b16.5 mild steel flanges, the material is first cut and then forged or formed. Once that is done it is checked for surface crack. Heat treatment is then carried out, followed by machining and testing. After carrying out the dimensional checks, required finishes are applied on the product before they are marked.

Advantages and disadvantages of ms flange
The benefits of ANSI b16.5 MS pipe flanges are:
- They are easy to use and comes with smooth functionality
- It possesses high tensile strength
- It can resist impact and abrasion
- It can withstand corrosion
- It is available in customizable sizes
However, it has a poor rigidity and thus should not be used in chemical process piping systems.
