Normally whether use the forged flange or cast flange depends on the design code, material, pressure, temperature, stress strength and medium of the piping system. It has been decided since the beginning of the design. If forged flange is chosen, it is very dangerous for you to use cast flange due to its much lower strength and other mechanical&chemical performance. If cast flange is chosen, it is not sensible to change it to forged flange because of the high cost. Visit Hebei Metals Industrial Limited website for more information about the forged flange.

How do you connect a vent pipe to the horizontal branch and main pipes running below the toilet floor of a high rise commercial building?

The toilet should have a 3" drain coming from the toilet and has to leave the room some where. When it passes the wall you can put a 3"x 2"x 3"sanitary tee( which should be going with the flow)and have vent stack running along the interior of the wall this may involve tearing out the drywall. Then just tie the vent on to an existing one. Keep in mind; the vent can be 2", and the vent can be no more than 4' away from the center of the toilet drain.

Why does the water from the disposal side of the double sink drain into the dishwasher?

Probably the drain hose from the dishwasher isn't high enough to keep the water from running back . The hose should be above the level of the disposal at some point. Some states require an "air gap" which is a device that is placed in the drain line to prevent this. Some states require a simple high loop in the drain hose. Many dishwasher manufacturers are now installing backflow preventers in the dishwasher.
