What is a Stainless Steel Orifice Flange?
Orifice flanges are generally made from forged carbon, alloy and stainless steel bar stock. The raw materials used for manufacturing orifice flanges include raw round bar of diameter size 20~400mm OD or billets for large size flanges. Orifice flanges are used with orifice meters for the purpose of measuring the flow rate of either liquids or gases in the respective pipeline. They are, for all intents and purposes, the same as weld neck and slip-on flanges with extra machining.
ASME B16.36 flanges are orifice flanges and they are used for measuring the flow of fluid that has been transported through a pipeline, via a flow nozzle, that has been kept on the flange. Orifice flanges of ASME B16.36 can be obtained from Class #300 – Class #2500. Orifice Class #300 flanges are procurable in types such as weld neck end, slip-on and threaded. Orifice Class #600 and flanges above that Class can be obtained in only weld neck type end. Orifice flanges of ASME B16.36 are produced in various grades and sizes.
Inspection & Testing of Stainless Steel Orifice Flanges
- Mechanical Testing Such as Tensile of Area, Hardness Test, Positive Material Identification – PMI Testing, Flattening Test, Micro and Macro Test, Pitting Resistance Test, Flaring Test, Intergranular Corrosion (IGC) Test.
Metline is a large producer of various type of stainless steel flanges such as Weld-neck, Slip-on, Socket-weld, Lap-joint, Blind and Threaded Types. We produce and forge stainless steel orifice flanges to specifications of ASME B16.5, ASME B16.47, ASME B16.48, BS EN 1092, BS 4504, API-605, API-590, MSSSP44, DIN 2632 to 2638, DIN 2576, 2642, 2527, 2566. At Metline, stainless steel orifice flanges cover a full range of pressure ratings of these specifications (150 – 2500 psi for ASME & PN6-PN400 for DIN/EN flanges). We also specialize in producing non-standard stainless steel orifice flanges upto a diameter of 4500 mm.
Metline Industries is one of the prominent supplier, manufacturer and exporter of stainless steel orifice flanges which have only moderate resistance to carbon absorption and are not suggested for its usage in highly carburizing atmospheres. Our manufacturing process for stainless steel flanges includes an adequate heat treatment and the examination of chemical and mechanical properties. We have CNC machines as well as conventional lathe machines for machining and processing various types of stainless steel flanges.

A flange is a method of connecting pipes, valves, pumps and other equipment to form a piping system. It also provides easy access for cleaning, inspection or modification. Flanges are usually welded or screwed. Flange joints are made by bolting together two flanges with a gasket between them to provide a seal. Flanges are commonly used to connect valves into pipework making it easier for removal and maintenance. There are many common flange standards and flanges within the same standard can either be flat (commonly cast iron, ductile iron) or raised face (commonly cast steel and stainless steel).
