7043E is the designation for model 7043 with a Grade E EPDM gasket. The VSH Shurjoint Model 7043 flange adapter allows for a direct connection with ANSI Class 300 flanges. The specially designed gasket enables the transition from a grooved system to a flanged system or component with this single flange. 2” through 8” Model 7043 flange adapters are supplied hinged as a single assembly, while larger sizes are supplied with separate segments. The Model 7043 flange adapters are comprised of two identical ductile iron segments complete with an EPDM gasket and two pairs of bolts and nuts. The flange segments are painted black.
The Model 7043 flange adapter has been designed with small projections on the outside face of the flange for mating with 1.6 mm raised face flanges. For mating with flat-face flanges these projections must be removed, this can be accomplished with a grinder or other tool.
