Kwik-Flange™  ISO KF

Flange Installation


The primary method of fastening and sealing a Kwik-Flange™ is achieved by a hinged radial clamp that provides uniform compression of an elastomer gasket secured between two mating flanges. 

The elastomer gasket is mounted on a stainless steel centering ring with tubular rims or extensions that protrude on either side of the gasket. These rims or extensions fit into locater grooves on the respective mating flanges and conveniently center the gasket between the flanges prior to sealing. The seal is made on the flat surfaces outside the locater groove or counterbore. The seal can be made quickly by finger-tightening a wing nut on the all-metal hinged aluminum clamp or by securing bolts in an alternate crisscross pattern on the aluminum bulkhead style clamps. In both cases a uniform pressure is applied around the outer flange surfaces to make a reliable seal.

An alternative method is mounting a single Kwik-Flange™ to a flat plate or bulkhead. This requires the user to drill and tap bolt holes into the existing bulkhead. Fastening the flange and making a vacuum seal is then achieved by securing bolts in an alternate crisscross pattern on the aluminum bulkhead style clamps. A uniform pressure is applied around the outer flange surfaces to make a reliable seal.
