how to square a flange on pipe

To join two pipes, the ends must be flush with one another. This can be achieved through employing a flange plate or ring known as a flange square.

A flange square allows users to precisely sync up the edges of two connecting pipes. This specialized tool is laid over the end of a pipe and then rotated until it is flush with the square’s outer shell. In this way, perfect alignment is achieved with a great level of accuracy.

When it comes to flange squares, two variations exist– those crafted for pipes with a diameter of less than two inches and those equipped for pipes in excess of two.

Squaring pipes is a pivotal element in connecting them, and a flange square is the useful tool required to accomplish that task. When the ends of the pipes are not perfectly aligned, the joint will be severely weakened and unable to hold, thus rendering the connection fruitless.

Pinpointing the center of a pipe can often be a tricky task, yet it is an essential step in using a flange square. To locate the center, one must simply measure from the end of the pipe, and when that point is found, they can then put the flange square over the edge.

The next action requires positioning the pipe so that it aligns with the corner of the flange square. Carefully ensure that the rotation of the pipe is in sync with the way the flange square is facing. Otherwise, the bond between them will not be secure.

With the pipe properly adjusted to the flange square, the last step to join the two components is to weld them. To do so, a skilled welder is needed, who will have to adjust their tool to the right heat settings for a successful connection.

To ensure the welded pipes have a secure connection, one sign of strength is to place a sheet of paper between them and pull. If the paper comes out easily, the pipes have not bonded properly and must be welded once more.

To finish off the welding process, any prickly edges formed have to be smoothed by sanding the weld area. After doing this, the flange square can then be taken away and the two pipes joined up.
