What is a non-standard flange?
The non-standard flange is also called custom flange,it means the flange is not as per the international standard of flanges. Commonly it is designed for special application.
Dimensions of Custom Flange :
A flange has many dimensions data to design,in the flange standards,those flanges dimensions are indicated clearly.When we design and produce the custom flanges,we do not have any standard for reference,then we have to confirm all the dimensions.When you order the custom flange, please show all the details or requirements to our factory .
Non-standard flange is usually used for customers’ special requirement. They indicate the application service ,the data,the specification and the drawing . Then we produced the special flanges according to their requirement.

How to design Non-standard flanges on standard Nozzles?
Custom flange on standard nozzle is not currently possible(possible enhancement).
However a separate analysis for the non standard flange can be performed using the component design option and designing a custom flange.
In the “Body Flange” Dialog there is a Button to retrieve the dimensions of a Standard Flange (see below).
