Types of Blind Flanges

Blind flanges bolt onto the last flange of a piping system, with a gasket between the pipe flange and the blind, to create a leak-free seal that terminates that section of pipe. The most common types of blind flanges available include flat face blind flanges, raised face blind flanges, and ring type joint blind flanges. At Hydro Blind Solutions, we offer cost-effective rentals of raised face and ring type joint blind flanges, and here is how they differ:

  • Blind Flange RF A raised face blind looks similar to a flat face blind, but the center section inside the flange is raised to create a better sealing surface around the perimeter.
  • Blind Flange RTJ – A blind flange with a ring type joint also has a raised face, but just inside the face, a groove is machined to accept a metal seal. RTJ blind flanges offer better performance in high-pressure piping systems.

In addition to blind flange rentals, we also offer Blind Flange RF and Blind Flange RTJ purchases, as well as custom blind flange machining services for specialty applications.

Blind Flange Rentals FAQs

What are blind flanges?

Blind flanges are solid disks used to create a stop or block off a pipeline. They’re machined in the same way as regular flanges: The gasket sealing rings are machined into the mating surfaces and the mounting holes are around the perimeters. Unlike regular flanges, blind flanges do not have an opening that allows fluid to pass through. This lets them be placed between two open flanges and be used to block off a pipeline’s liquid flow.

Hydro Blind Solutions keeps an extensive inventory of blind flanges ready to ship to you from our Port Arthur, Texas facility.

What are the benefits of installing blind flanges?

A much more cost-efficient way to seal a pipe when doing repairs, blind flanges are also convenient to install and can save your business a good amount of time and money. They are useful because valves are often located extremely far apart, even miles from where the work is being done. A blind flange allows crews to stop the flow of liquid much closer to the job site.

Many pipeline contractors incorporate a blind flange into the end of a pipeline to allow for continuation or expansion.

What is the difference between a blind flange and a blank flange?

Blind flanges have no opening to allow fluid to pass through.

How many types of blind flanges are there?

Hydro Blind Solutions offers carbon steel and stainless steel blind flanges in a variety of sizes and pressure classes. The key types of blind flanges we rent and sell are paddle blinds, spectacle blinds, vented paddle blinds, and more.

Which is better, a blind flange rental or blind flange purchase?

It depends on current and future needs. Most projects involve a lot of moving pieces, but parts and tools are only used for a small portion of the job. Renting a blind flange for a few days or weeks can make a lot more sense than purchasing one.
