Flange Standards And Specifications
Standard compliance isn’t just a formality, but our commitment to deliver unparalleled quality. We rigorously adhere to distinctive standards and classifications, including AWWA, ASME, and ANSI. These standards can be the baseline used for creating a custom flange.
AWWA (American Water Works Association)
Adherence to this standard ensures that the flange is suitable for water infrastructure projects. These standards specify distinctive materials, dimensions, and structure requirements. It guarantees the reliability of our custom flanges in water-related applications.
ASME ( The American Society Of Mechanical Engineers)
The gold standard for quality in the manufacture of bespoke flanges is ASME standards. These standards outline exacting requirements for performance, design, and materials. We guarantee that our custom flanges adhere to the highest industry standards by following ASME specifications.
Common Custom Flange
Tailored Excellence: Your Perfect Flange, Every Time
Blind Flanges are typically round plates with no center hole. They function like the caps for pipes when a flanged connection is used. Blind Flanges are useful to seal off the end of a pipe when it's not in operation, and when there is a bend just before the end of said line.
Loose flanges are another name for lap joints. These flanges are suitable for joining pipes, fittings, or pipes together. Because they are not directly welded to the pipe, they set themselves apart from other flange types. They are typically installed with stub ends.
Socket-weld flanges are ideal for smaller-diameter pipelines and systems with lower pressures and temperatures. You can insert the pipe into the female socket of the socket-weld flange and build the connection using a filet weld around the top. It enables a smooth passage of gas or liquid through the pipe.
Slip-on flanges have a hole in the center, and the internal diameter is larger than the connecting pipe. Therefore, they smoothly slide onto the pipe before getting welded in place at the hub.
Threaded flanges have internal threads that allow them to screw onto the pipe. They are appropriate for small-diameter pipes or locations where welding would be difficult since it eliminates the requirement for welding.
A weld neck flange minimizes stress concentration, is ideal for high-pressure applications, and requires a butt weld for installation, making it a popular choice in pipe processing for improved durability and flow stability.
Select The Optimal Material For Flanges That Level Up Their Performance.
Carbon steel is notable for its strength and cost-effectiveness. This flange material is suitable for many jobs and is resistant to rust.
It is renowned for its corrosion resistance and hygienic properties. Therefore, the food processing industry prefers it most. 304 and 316 are most common.
These are highly robust and made of various base metals. Additionally, they typically have improved heat resistance and strength.
This material is extremely strong and suitable for use when durability is paramount, but is considered outdated and carbon steel is used instead.
Titanium and Inconel are employed in high temperatures, significant pressure, or exceptionally harsh environments.
We blend various elements to create composite materials with specialized qualities like strength, lightweight, and moisture resistance.
