ANSI/ASME B16.5 A105 1500LB SCH160 Forged Anchor Flange

Followings are the definition, information and application of  various types of flanges:

Weld Neck Flange Slip On Flange Blind Flange Threaded Flange
Plate/Plain Flange Socket Weld Flange Orifice Flange Spectacle Blind Flange
Lap Joint/Loose Flange Long Weld Neck Flange Reducing Flange Rolled-Forging Ring Flange
Flange-Olet Tube Sheet/Tubesheet Anchor Flange Non-Standard/Custom Flange

The anchor flange is commonly secured into a concrete foundation. Besides preventing the axial movement, the anchor flange is also installed when the pipeline crossing from a bridge or river. Another application of the anchor flange, there may bring expansion movements when temperature is changing in the piping system. Then an anchor flange is installed to combat the axial movement in the pipeline.

How to install a anchor flange in piping system:

When we install a anchor flange in the chosen position solidly in a pipeline, we should weld the anchor flange with the two pipes first, then pour the concrete around the anchor flanges and the pipeline, the anchor flange should be sealed in the cement concrete. The anchor flange neck thickness and diameter should be same with the pipe dimensions for welding.



Material of the Anchor Flange:

The anchor flange is used to restrain and fasten the piping system, so the material of anchor flange should be in high strength. In our flange factory, the most common anchor flange material is A105, ASTM A694 F52, F60 and F65 material is also recommended if necessary.
