Flat Flanged Hot Pressed Code Ends

Flat flanged ends, sometimes called flat heads with flange or flat flange heads, are commonly used to fabricate pressure vessels, process vessels, and storage tanks. They feature a flat or almost flat central portion and an outward-extending flange around the perimeter, which is used to attach the end to the vessel's body.

APV Heads Flat flanged ends are manufactured for use in Australia and around the world, with industries including chemical, water treatment, and road transport depending on their quality and reliability.

How Are Flat Flanged Ends Made?

Our flat flanged ends are made using the hot-pressing method and can be customised to suit industry and customer requirements. Typically, the process involves cutting a flat disc from a larger metal sheet. APV Heads uses Australian steel for its strength and quality.

From there, a flange is formed around the perimeter of the disc. Any other requirements, like dimensions, angles, and overall size, can be accommodated during the hot-pressing process when the steel is flexible.

Flat flanged ends may be better suited to applications needing to fit specific equipment or a flat surface. They're not generally used for extremely high-pressure containment vessels, as dished ends with curvature are considered more optimal.
