- Cast iron
- Ductile iron
- Cast 316 Stainless steel
- Cast bronze
- Cast steel
- Specialist steels eg Duplex, Hastalloy
Standard flanges are drilled to the British Standard BS4504, with pressure rating to suit the specific application:
- BS4504 PN16 | 16 bar working pressure
- BS4504 PN25 | 25 bar working pressure
- BS4504 PN40 | 40 bar working pressure
ANSI standard flanges drilled to 150 lb or 300 lb ratings and all other standards are available on request.
