STAINLESS STEEL FLANGES & FLANGE UNIONS
The SSFL is a line of stainless steel refrigeration flanges, flange kits, and flange unions for refrigeration valves and piping systems. Flanges presently available in the industry are forged steel which can be welded but are highly susceptible to rusting. The standard location of the flanges in the piping system makes them near-impossible to paint, especially considering surfaces are obstructed by rusting steel nuts and bolts. Plating non-stainless flanges is possible but noxious gases are released from the plating burning during welding, possibly bothering welders.
