"Forged flanges are only available for nozzle types 9 and 10"

"Forged flanges are only available for nozzle types 9 and 10"

"Forged flanges are only available for nozzle types 9 and 10"

I have just noticed this message appearing in the flange dialogue box no matter what nozzle type I have selected (usually 1-4) or what type flange or flange material I select.  Doesn't seem right.


RE: "Forged flanges are only available for nozzle types 9 and 10"

COMPRESS build 6251 includes a new message on the nozzle B16.5 flange dialog "Forged flanges are only available for nozzles types 9 and 10".

I have to admit that I also was nonplussed the first few times I saw the new note, and wondered "well, what about forged weld neck flanges, etc?"

The note is intended to indicate that "nozzle necks with integrally forged flanges are only available for nozzle types 9 and 10".

This is what happens when you try to clarify something for someone and end up confusing everyone else!

Then I'd suggest they change or alter the note to say as such.  What it says and what you say it should say don't jive in my mind.

I thought at first I was just "seeing" things again and went back and uploaded some older designs I had done and it was there too, so I knew something had been added.

I'm happily married, I stay confused. :)
