ANSI FLANGES
ANSI CLASS FLANGES
The added strength of an ANSI certified flange contributes to high performance mechanical systems, structures, and assemblies across the United States and around the world. Tested and certified to meet the specifications of the American National Standards Institute, ANSI Class Flanges carry the organization's seal of approval for the toughest jobs.
WHAT IS ANSI?
Originally formed in 1918, the American National Standards Institute is headquartered in Washington, DC, and is widely recognized as the American organization responsible for overseeing the national standards and conformity assessment system for products, services, processes, systems, and personnel.
ANSI works domestically with American government agencies and organizations, as well as with international entities, to make ANSI standards useful around the world.
Prior to the creation of ANSI, standards for engineering and equipment such as flanges were developed by the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE or IEEE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM International) as members of the United Engineering Society, or UES.

ANSI B16.5
ANSI B16.5 -1996 is the official standard for ANSI Class Pipe Flanges and Flanged Fittings, applied specifically to those made from cast or forged materials, as well as blind flanges and some reducing flanges crafted in cast, forged, or plate. It covers evaluations and standards for the following characteristics, noted in both metric and U.S. units of measure:
Pressure-temperature ratings, materials, tolerances, dimensions, marking, testing, methods of designating openings.
ANSI standard flange dimensions are designated as 150, 300, 400, 600, 900, 1500, and 2500, in sizes NPS 1/2 through NPS 24.

ANSI Class Flange Types
Regardless of size or specification, flanges are fundamentally designed to close, cover, connect, or support pipe systems. The six common types of ANSI Class Flanges, including:
Slip-on, in both ring and hub style, to fit over a pipe
Weld neck, machined to match a pipe’s inside diameter and attached via welding
Blind, for sealing the end or opening of a piping system or vessel
Lap joint, to pair with stub end fittings for applications demanding dismantling
Threaded, to fit pipes with external threads without the need for welding
Socket-weld, to provide ideal inside flow with the use of a socket fit and top weld 
Material Grades and Performance
The most common material grade for ANSI Class Flanges is forged or cast, unless otherwise specified.
Industries and Applications
The strength and durability represented by ANSI standards for flanges is valued in both domestic and international industries of all kinds. Common industries and applications include:
Food processing and manufacturing (ANSI-NSF is a unique food-safe family of specifications)
Valves, vessels, and industrial pumps
Waterworks and municipal pipe systems
Heating systems and heat exchangers
Plumbing and mechanical systems
Fire protection services
Power plants and the nuclear power industry
Oil, gas, and chemical assemblies.
Socket-weld pipe flanges
Socket-weld pipe flanges

Socket-weld pipe flanges are typically used on smaller sizes of high pressure pipes. These pipe flanges are attached by inserting the pipe into the socket end and applying fillet weld around the top. This allows for a smooth bore and better flow of the fluid or gas inside of the pipe. Slip on Pipe flanges with a hub have published specifications that range from 1/2" thru 24".?Coastal Flange provides Socket Weld pipe flanges in all material grades, specifications and sizes.
Socket Weld pipe flanges are typically provided with a raised face, flat face, or RTJ facing. When a raised face is necessary for socket weld pipe flanges, the standard height is 1/16" for socket weld pipe flanges under 400#. For socket weld pipe flanges of 400# and up, the standard socket weld pipe flange raised face height is 1/4".
Coastal Flange manufactures socket weld pipe flanges in all steel material grades, including carbon socket weld pipe flanges, stainless steel socket weld pipe flanges and alloy socket weld pipe flanges. Coastal Flange also has many different socket weld pipe flanges in stock and ready to ship.

Slip-on flange
As made obvious by their name, these pipe flanges slip over the pipe. They're manufactured with an inside diameter that is slightly bigger than the pipe's outside diameter. These attachments are connected to the pipe via fillet weld at the top and bottom of the flange.
Slip on pipe flanges are typically provided with a raised or flat face. When a raised face is necessary for slip on pipe flanges, the standard height is 1/16" for slip on pipe flanges under 400#. For slip on pipe flanges of 400# and up, the standard slip on pipe flange raised face height is 1/4".
Coastal Flange manufactures slip on pipe flanges in all steel material grades, including carbon slip on pipe flanges, stainless steel slip on pipe flanges and alloy slip on pipe flanges. Coastal Flange also has many different slip on pipe flanges in stock and ready to ship. Slip on pipe flanges in stock include AWWA slip on pipe flanges, ANSI slip on pipe flanges, Pressure Vessel slip on pipe flanges and slip on pipe flanges that match the OD and drilling of ASME flanges.
WELD NECK PIPE FLANGES
WELD NECK PIPE FLANGES
These pipe flanges attach by welding the pipe to the neck of the flange. This transfers stress from the flange to the pipe instead. It also reduces the stress concentration from the base of the hub. Weld neck flanges are often used for applications where high pressure is a factor. The inside diameter of the flange is designed to match the pipe's inside diameter. Weld Neck Pipe flanges with a hub have published specifications that range from 1/2" thru 96". Our company provides these in all material grades, specifications and sizes.

LAP JOINT PIPE FLANGES
Lap joint pipe flanges slide directly over the pipe and are most commonly used with stub end fittings. A pipe is usually welded to the Stub End and the Lap Joint pipe flange is free to rotate around the stub end. The benefit of this is that there will not be any issues with bolt hole alignment. Lap Joint pipe flanges are often used for applications that require frequent dismantling.
Slip on Pipe flanges with a hub have published specifications that range from 1/2" thru 24". Sizes above 24" are produced as lap joints to slip on dimensions. Coastal Flange provides Lap Joint pipe flanges in all material grades, specifications and sizes.
