DIN 906 is a standard specification published by the Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN), which is the German Institute for Standardization. This standard defines the characteristics and dimensions of hexagon socket pipe plugs made of steel and intended for use with threaded pipe connections.
The DIN 906 standard covers plug with a male or female thread, and with a hexagon socket head for tightening or loosening. The standard specifies various dimensions such as the size of the plug, the thread type, the length of the threaded portion, and the width across flats of the hexagon socket head.
This standard is commonly used in industrial applications where pipes need to be closed or sealed. The DIN 906 standard helps ensure compatibility and interchangeability between different manufacturers' hexagon socket pipe plugs.
Uses of DIN 912
Hexagon socket pipe plugs with a male or female thread, and with a hexagon socket head for tightening or loosening, are commonly used in industrial applications where threaded pipe connections need to be closed or sealed. They have several uses, such as:
- Closing off pipes: They are used to close off pipes that are not in use or that need to be temporarily shut down for maintenance or repairs.
- Pressure testing: They can be used to seal off a section of pipe for pressure testing. This is often done during the installation of new piping systems or to check the integrity of existing systems.
- Preventing leaks: They can be used to prevent leaks from pipe connections that are not currently in use or that are being removed for maintenance or repairs.
- Chemical processing: They are commonly used in chemical processing applications where it is important to seal off piping connections to prevent the escape of hazardous chemicals.
- Water treatment: They are used in water treatment plants to close off pipes during routine maintenance and repairs.
- Oil and gas industry: They are used in the oil and gas industry to close off pipes during well drilling operations or to isolate sections of pipelines for maintenance and repairs.
Overall, these hexagon socket pipe plugs are versatile components that are essential in a variety of industrial applications where threaded pipe connections need to be closed or sealed.
Materials for DIN 912
The choice of material for the DIN 906 plugs depends on the application requirements, and there are many different materials that can be used. Some common materials used for pipe plugs include:
- Steel: Various grades of steel can be used, such as carbon steel, stainless steel, or alloy steel.
- Brass: Brass is often used for its corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity.
- Aluminum: Aluminum is a lightweight material that is often used in applications where weight is a concern.
- Copper: Copper is used for its excellent thermal and electrical conductivity.
- Plastic: Certain types of plastic, such as PVC or nylon, can be used for their chemical resistance and affordability.
It's important to note that the materials used to make DIN 906 hexagon socket pipe plugs must meet certain requirements, such as strength, corrosion resistance, and temperature resistance, depending on the specific application. The selection of material should be made based on the application requirements and the properties of the materials available.
