ANSI Flange FAQs

Q What Are the Main Features of Flange Connection?

The main features of flange connection are easy disassembly, high strength, and good sealing performance. During the installing, the two flanges are required to be parallel, the sealing surface of the flange should not be damaged and it should be cleaned. 

Q How to Inquiry Flanges?

It is best to describe as specific as you can. Details about flanges are including type(SO, WN, TH, BL, SW,LP, etc.), material, pressure, facing( RF, FF, RTJ, ect.), standard and quantity, for example, 2” ASTM A105 SO flange, Class 150, RF, ANSI B16.5

Q How Long is the Warranty Time for Flanges?

Generally, our warranty time for flanges is 12 months
