Here are some of the characteristics of Compact Flange comparing to a conventional ANSI Flange:
- Significant weight savings compared to the equivalent ANSI Flange.
- Smaller and easier to handle in confined spaces.
- Quick and easy make-up with superior mechanical strength and fatigue performance.
- Tighter tolerences.
- Leak tightness.
- Better sealing surface to prevent corrosion on flange faces
