Frequently Asked Questions About Spacers
What is a spacer in piping?
Often used in conjunction with a paddle blind, a spacer fits between two pipe flanges and is open in the center to allow the flow of liquids or gases. When flow in the pipe must be shut off or the pipe must be isolated, the spacer is removed and a paddle blind is inserted, which is a solid plate that stops flow in the pipe.
What is a spacer ring?
A spacer ring is used between two pipes to compensate for gaps or to correct a misalignment. It is a ring metal that can be tapered on one side to help with alignment. Spacer rings are typically custom-manufactured for each application.
What is the difference between a spectacle blind and a spacer?
A spectacle blind is two round plates connected by a bar of steel in the center, similar to a set of spectacles. One side is a solid plate, similar to a paddle blind, and the other side has an opening in the center, similar to a spacer. For smaller piping systems where the weight of the spectacle blind is manageable, the spectacle blind can be installed in one direction to enable flow, or rotated 180 degrees to block flow. For larger pipes, separate spacers and paddle blinds are used to enable or block flow.
