Lap Joint Flange

The lap joint flange (LJF) is used with a lap joint stub end fitting. It is similar to a slip-on flange, but with two differences. The radius and the flat face, both allow the flange to secure against the stub end fitting. This is useful where alignment of bolt holes is difficult, such as with spools to be attached to flanged nozzles of vessels. A lap joint is used in low pressure applications and not suitable where high external of heavy loads are present. 175px-DS_LJF_2 700px-Data_lap_joint_b16.5_150-2500
