Over the summer of 2013 I got the pleasure of riding my bicycle across Iowa during Ragbrai, an annual bike ride held there. I had the privilege of riding with a fellow named Scott Stoll who has rode his bicycle around the world. Scott is one of those visionary types who cares more about doing something unique than about just making money. I like him a lot and thus when he brought me the idea of getting a raft for our bikes so we could ride them in the water I bit hard. I bought one for myself and one for him. We have always tried to run Texas Flange with low overhead to keep prices down. You won’t see “Texas Flange” on the side of a Nascar anytime soon, but this is the kind of sponsorship we can get into. Scot Stoll’s water based biking adventures are now sponsored by Texas Flange. J

As a reminder, the latest edition of ASME* flange standardization, ASME B16.5-2013, has been updated as of this April and serves as a revision of ASME B16.5-2009 for ASME flanges. The next edition for ASME flanges is scheduled for release in approximately two years. Texas Flange will review this edition upon its release as we do for all carbon steel flanges, stainless steel flanges and alloy flanges.
As the needs of our customers for various flanges are often comprehensive in nature, and as flanges are a critical component of an ever evolving industry, Texas Flange strives to ensure that we are up to date with the latest editions of the governing specifications of all flanges and that we adhere to those flange specifications. Because we are a leader in the flange industry, Texas Flange provides flanges and other products compatible with the most cutting edge technology on the flange market.
Naturally, as many of the applications our customers have involve flanges from old, archived, or outdated specifications, we keep these flange specifications on file in order to provide both product and information to anyone in need. Having been in the flange business since 1986, we understand how important it is to review the past and work through the present with an appreciation for the timeline of the flange industry. This allows us to move forward in an efficient manner, anticipate any changes down the road, and adjust accordingly so that we serve you, our customers, better.
We have the flanges you need.

Texas Flange prides itself on having bilingual sales support and customer service. If you want to speak about your flanges with someone who knows Spanish, please call us and request our international sales department. One of our bilingual sales representatives will give you a quote for your flanges and help you order the flanges you need when you are ready.
While we are always willing to talk with you, we encourage you to also email us your list of flanges so we can maximize accuracy and efficiency. We sell all types of flanges throughout Latin America, included ANSI/ASME, AWWA, metric, and custom flanges. If you have never ordered from us before, we can set up an account for you and get your flange order in process. We will double check the accuracy of your order multiple times before shipping your flanges, and we will be happy to include any documentation on your flanges required for your job.
Of course, because Texas Flange is a bilingual company, you can email us your flange order in Spanish if you prefer.
Call us Monday-Friday 8-5 CST 1-800-826-3801, or e-mail us anytime.
