When you’re installing a piping system it’s essential to have pipe fittings and flanges in standard dimensions that are dependable and high-quality. The better the quality, the longer your piping system lasts. Forged parts alone have a 37% higher fatigue strength than other standard parts.
To feel confident in the fittings and flanges you choose, you need to find an experienced flange distributor you can trust. That being said, here are three things to look out for to help you find the right flange distributor for your business.
- Supply capacity. The last thing you want to do when you’re looking for pipe fittings and flanges for your project is to visit multiple suppliers for different parts. Take a look at the types of products that a flanges distributor supplies. Do they only supply flanges? Or are there other products like forged steel fittings and long weld necks available? The more products your distributor has to offer, the less research you need to do to find another supplier. Lynco Flange and Fitting is a one-stop shop that pulls from stock and sources out entire jobs for some customers, which can be a major advantage for our customers.
- Customization. Not every pipe fitting out there meets the unique needs of your project. If you know that your project will have challenging demands, it may be in your best interest to look for a flange distributor that also offers custom products. Common custom products you might need for your project include high-yield fittings and flanges, weld saddles, specialty flow nozzles, and finished wellhead components.
- Communication. Good communication is key no matter what kind of business you’re working with because it lays the groundwork for a customer-supplier relationship. It’s best to know from the onset that a flange distributor is readily available to answer any questions you have. Some of the best ways to determine how well a business will communicate with you is to give them a call or send an email. The distributor you’re considering ought to pick up the phone and respond to emails quickly and efficiently.
