Anchor Flanges

Pipe Line Immobilization


Anchor Flanges, sometimes referred to as Anchor Forgings, are used for immobilizing of high pressure pipe lines and restraining pipe movement where uncontrolled thrust load forces could damage equipment. Anchor Forgings are custom designed to provide the most economical dimensions for each special application. Stress Calculations are provided as outlined in ASME Section VIII, Division 1, Appendix 2.
