What are the factors that affect the price of flange?
Flange is an essential part of pipe design, pipe fittings and valves, and also a component used in equipment and equipment components (such as manhole, observation hole, liquid level gauge, etc.). We also know that flange is divided into standard flange and non-standard flange. The national standard flange is processed according to the national flange production standard. The outer diameter, screw hole and thickness of flange are fixed, but in the actual flange production process, many companies will customize the flange (non-standard flange), so is the price of customized flange expensive?
To understand the price of flange, you must first find out the factors that affect the price of flange.
Factors influencing flange price: flange material
After all, the materials that can be produced are cast iron, carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, etc. The price of different materials is different, they will rise and fall with the price of steel in the market. After the change, the price of flange will be different. For example, the price of stainless steel flange and carbon steel flange will be different.
Factors influencing flange price: flange specification
After all, the size of the flange is different, and the amount of raw materials used in its production will be different. Of course, the price will be different. For example, large flange is better than ordinary flange. The price is more expensive. The production and processing of thin-walled flange is a few more steps than that of thick-walled flange, so the price is naturally higher than that of back wall flange. The price of flange with different inner diameter and outer diameter will be different.
Factors influencing flange price: flange manufacturer
Due to the formal and large flange manufacturers have rich experience in flange production, so their production equipment and production process are better, so they are naturally higher than small flange manufacturers. But we do not exclude some flange manufacturers, in order to better meet the needs of customers, and improve their own flange production technology, so that the flange produced has high quality and low price.
Factors influencing flange price: quantity of customized flange
There is a custom in the society, that is, if a large number of orders are made at one time, the flange manufacturer will make the price a little cheaper, otherwise it will be sold at the original price of the flange. Of course, there are also some small brand flange manufacturers. No matter how many flanges you customize, what they want is the price of flange production, not a little cheaper.
Factors influencing flange price: transportation distance
After all, if the flange manufacturer is far away from your receiving location, you will need to spend more money on transportation. This part of the money can be paid by the flange manufacturer, but more wallet is included in the flange price, so in this case, the flange price will be higher.
Factors influencing flange price: quality of flange
The higher the quality of flange, the more expensive the price.
Therefore, under the same conditions, as long as the flange performance, quality and use requirements, try to choose low processing price manufacturers, so as to reduce costs for customers. In addition, with the aggravation of the competition in the flange processing industry, some manufacturers have also implemented the way of price reduction promotion in order to improve the popularity and influence of the industry.
Well, the above is an introduction to the factors that affect the price of flange. I hope everyone can understand, and then choose a flange manufacturer with good quality and reasonable price to provide customized service.
