The CTS flange advantage Flanged fittings are a necessary evil for commercial and mechanical contractors. Without them, the connection of lines and plant equipment such as chillers, filters, control valves and backflow preventers are a nightmare - especially if ready access is unavailable to any component for installation or maintenance. The CTS Copper Companion Flange, a fully floating flange, is one such logical development in copper-tube installation. The concept is very simple. Instead of having to install a brass companion flange that requires careful alignment of bolt holes during brazing, the CTS Copper Companion Flange uses a brazed/soldered copper fitting directly to the copper tube, backed by a fully floating powder-coated steel flange fitted with a neoprene insulator. The integral insulator allows the CTS flange to offer 100% protection against electrolysis. CTS Fabrication started in 1997 in a small warehouse and office in Sacramento with a two-piece companion flange, a couple employees and a patent. Since then, CTS has grown to be one of the largest companion flange manufacturers in the United States. CTS flanges can be installed in any application where a brass flange would be used, i.e., butterfly valves, backflow preventers, boilers, pumps, chillers, heat exchangers, gate valves, OS&Y valves and flanged ball valves. Our flanges have a temperature range of -66° to 272° F. With that kind of temperature range and a burst pressure range of 1,000 psi, CTS flanges can be installed in almost any application. CTS makes 150-lb. And 300-lb.Standard two-piece companion flanges 1. 5 in. Through 8 in. CTS makes 150-lb. And 30-lb.Roll-grooved two-piece companion flanges 2 in. Through 6 in. CTS make 2-in. Through 4-in.Two-piece spigot companion flanges for all press-fit applications. CTS’ patented, unique design allows for a faster installation. When installing CTS flanges, you are connecting copper to copper rather that copper to brass or bronze. Your heat-up time and your cool-down time is shorter. With every CTS installation you have the peace of mind knowing every installation is 100% guaranteed against electrolysis. From the very beginning, CTS flanges were lead-free. In fact, you could say we were the first and only lead-free copper companion flange available. With proper installation, CTS Flange warranties the product against electrolysis for the life of the system. CTS’ unique, patented design has a very important EPDM rubber insulator separating the copper fitting from the steel-backing flange, assuring an electrolysis-free installation. Don’t settle for imitations. Ask for the original patented CTS flange. CTS’ website at www.ctsflange.com has many available resources, including list prices, specification sheets, installation instructions, brochures and flyers, pictures of projects, features and benefits, rep locations in the U. S. and Canada, as well as CTS contacts and phone numbers. CTS flanges are certified by NSF61 Annex G.
