Does Texas Flange provide custom flange templates we can review and modify?
Yes. Texas Flange keeps detailed records of all orders. One of the reasons we do so is to help expedite repeat business. An even more important reason Texas Flange keeps such detailed records is to accommodate customers in need of custom flanges. We have an entire library of custom flanges designed by engineers who basically needed to modify existing ASME/ANSI standard flange specifications.
Examples of such modifications include non-ferrous metals flanges, low temperature flanges, stainless steel flanges, non-metallic flanges, carbon steel flanges, and alloy steel flanges for high temperature applications.
Minor dimensional changes are often all that are made to ANSI/ASME standards, although we have plenty of templates that also feature modified tolerances for higher or lower temperatures than standard operations typically experience. We can provide you with multiple flange templates that show which flanges represent the most suitable options for your project. Often you will find what you are looking for in what already exists in our inventory of weld neck flanges, slip on flanges, ring flanges, and blind/test flanges. Other flanges can be changed with only a few quick modifications to the template and be put into expedited production as soon as your flange drawings are finalized.
That is a very good question. Many people who call us looking for flanges think that we offer flanges in only one type of material grade. In fact, we offer flanges in all material grades.
The most popular material grades are made from carbon steel. We sell carbon steel pipe flanges and flanged fittings. We also supply stainless steel flanges that are used for a wide range of projects. Plate flanges can be ordered both waterworks and petrochemical applications. Bar flanges and forged spec flanges can also be made per the dimensions in our catalogue.
Two other popular industrial flange material grades include titanium flanges and aluminum flanges. These industrial flanges are typically ordered for projects that require project managers to save on weight but maintain strength. You can find a full range of aluminum flanges and titanium flanges by contacting us here at Texas Flange.
Many of the more recent projects we have been fulfilling call for flanges with a high level of corrosion resistance. The most popular industrial flange materials for these applications include inconel, incoloy, and hastalloy. These flanges are generally used in applications that involve high temperature surfaces.
Another common request is one that requires flanges manufactured for low temperatures. Regular carbon flanges, along with high yield carbon flanges, are commonly used in modern pipe infrastructure, many now in low temperature applications.
