Explanation:
assuming that from your other questions the context here is piping, 'flanges' is correct, but I have my doubts about 'plug-and-socket connector'. A connector is usually a 'verbinding', and I would translate 'vervbind' as join or joint, not connector. Unfortunately, my plumbing knowledge does not extend to making a good guess as to what it would be in English.
