Designed for use in changing diameters in a piping system. A reducing flange consists of a flange with one specified diameter having a bore of a different and smaller, diameter
Except for the bore and hub dimensions, the flange will have dimensions of the larger pipe size.
Type of Reducing flanges
HT PIPE can design and produce the reducing flange as per request , we can supply the reducing flange in various types including weld-neck reducing flange, slip on reducing flange and threaded reducing flange etc.
Except for the bore and hub dimensions, the flange will have dimensions of the larger pipe size. Reducing flanges are normally provided as one of three types:
. Welding Neck Reducing Flange
. Slip On Reducing Flange
. Threaded Reducing Flange
The number one feature of reducing flanges, is that they are a highly economical way to make transitions between pipes of different sizes.
Uses of Reducing Flanges:
- Reducing flanges are used in pipe-to-pipe connections.
- Reducing flanges are a little easier to bolt up than non-reducing flanges.
- They provide the most perfect solution when you need to connect different size flanges.
- These flanges are available in all types and pressures.
- Reducing flanges are fixed by welding, gluing or clamping flanges of equal dimensions provided with different connecting pieces.
- They offer the simplest and least expensive method of mating two different sized flanges.

What is a Reducing Flange?
Reducing flanges are designed for when there is a change in the pipe size. The predominate flange (dimensions) matching the larger pipe size (NPT) but having a smaller bore matching the smaller pipe size (NPT). These flanges normally come in blind, slip-on, threaded and weld neck flanges.
They are available in all pressure classes and provide a good alternative to connecting two different sizes of pipe. This type of flange should not be used if an abrupt transition would create unwanted turbulence, such as at a pump.

Uses and advantages of Reducing Flanges:
- Reducing Flanges provide the most perfect solution when you need to connect different sizes of flanges.
- They offer a simple and most economical method to join two pipes of different sizes.
- Available in various pressure classes up to #2500 class.
