Do Materials Affect Strength and Durability in Long Weld Neck Flanges?

In long weld neck nozzle forging, better materials create a longer lasting stronger ready-to-install product that will be more effective, more resilient and more cost effective. The tendency for the long weld neck flanges to be a lighter structure calls for metals that will endure and have continue strength. Alloys are especially helpful in the long weld neck nozzle forging process since they can incorporate the strength of one metal with the endurance of another and create the best possible finished product. (Grainger and Blunt, 1998)

Requirements in Long Weld Neck Flanges

All Forged Components materials follow the requirements in ASME, AISI, API and ASTM standards and upon request, materials can be made to follow NACE standards. A few of the materials available for production are Carbon steels, high yield steels, nickel alloy steels and austenitic stainless steels, among many other various combinations.

When made with the superior materials offered at Forged Components, the long neck weld flange or nozzle will be a stronger product that is also less susceptible to corrosion. Differing concentrations of alloys can be added for further durability to the lighter structure of long neck weld flanges and nozzles.
