What is a Socket weld flange?
Pipe flanges that are inserted into the pipe through the socket end, and then a fillet weld is applied around the top for proper attachment, is known as a Socket weld flange. They are typically used in small-sized pipes that deal with high pressure. The construction of the Socket Weld Pipe Flanges allow for a smooth bore and better fluid or gas flow inside the pipe. These flanges are available in different material grades, specifications, and sizes. Clients can also get Socket Weld Raised Face Flange, flat face or RTJ face flanges. They generally come with a good fatigue strength.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of ASME B16.5 SWRF Flanges
The benefits of Asme B16.5 Swrf Flanges are:
- Their design enables easy and proper alignment.
- They are less prone to leakage
- As welding is done outside, there is no chance of the weld metal to flow inside the pipe bore.
A significant disadvantage of the Alloy Steel Swrf Flange is that they are not considered to be a high integrity joint as the weld is quite difficult to prove. They are only suitable for low to medium classes.

Does A350 Lf2 Sw Flanges crack?
The A350 Lf2 Sw Flanges need a gap of around ⅙ inches at the bottom of the pipe which will allow socket access and thermal expansion. But sometimes, the gap can lead to the problem of over stress which might crack the filet weld of the fitting.
