James Duva, Inc. supplies various flanges, including RTJ flanges. These are reliable, durable and designed to withstand high-pressure applications.
A Ring Type Joint Flange, commonly known as the RTJ flange, is a type of flange that uses a metal ring that sits in a hexagonal groove as a gasket to seal the flange pair.
RTJ Flanges are made to accept steel ring gaskets into their grooves. As you can see, this is done in order to create a metal to metal seal. This happens when tightened bolts compress the gasket into the grooves between the flanges.
An RTJ flange also usually has a raised face with the groove machined into the face of the flange.
RTJ Flanges are used for high-pressure applications up to as high as 15,000 psi. It is only furnished on steel or alloy valve bodies. The flanges come in various forms including blind, slip-on, threaded and weld neck.
RTJ Flanges are strong and in conjunction with the ring. The gasket becomes confined to a groove and has two sealing surfaces. The groove assures that the ring centers itself when the bolts are tightened. It also is self-actuating, meaning that the sealing pressure increases when the process pressure increases.
