Studding outlet flanges (also known as outlet flanges, stud pads, or pad flanges) are made to order items offered in a variety of configurations. The most commonly used studding outlet flange in the industry is the flat bottom type. We also offer them in a shell mount, head mount, or alternate radius in order to set the flanges flush with your tank or vessel. Just let us know the radius and type of mount required and we will provide these flanges according to your application. The least common outlet flange is the tangential mount, which is offset from a center line and therefore lacks symmetry. We provide these outlet flanges according to your submitted drawing, and although the mount detail is a bit more complex, this typically does not affect the lead time in comparison to the other styles.
The majority of outlet flanges have tapped holes as opposed to thru holes. The raised face is standard as with ASME/ANSI flanges, but flat face and RTJ/groove facing is available upon request. Studding outlet flanges come in any material as “normal” flanges, especially in grades ASTM A105 forged carbon steel, A350 LF2 low temp carbon steel, and forged stainless steel grades ASTM F304/L and F316/L. We can also provide these in special alloys as necessary. Give us a call or shoot us an email with your inquiry so we can provide you with the studding outlet flanges you need as fast as possible!
