What is the Difference between ANSI and ASME Flanges?
The short answer is not a lot. ANSI is an abbreviation for the American National Standards Institute, a non-profit organization composed of members from a wide cross-section of individuals associated with them in academia, government agencies, businesses and organizations that…



Advantages & Disadvantages of the Different Types of Carbon Steel
Carbon steel is one of the oldest and most widely used types of steel in the world. The uses of this carbon steel are largely determined by the trace amounts of carbon infused within the steel during the “smelting” process.…



The Use of Carbon Steel in the Flange Manufacturing Process
  Carbon steel is the most commonly used steel in the world. When carbon is infused into steel, it transforms the properties of the steel, and how it should be used, based on the amount of carbon present in the steel.…



The Purpose Of Forged Flanges
Forged flanges combine two separate machinery parts together. They can be an extension to a structure in order to make the object stronger. Industrial flanges have numerous uses including connecting sheets, pumps, pipes and structures that specifically require an intermediate…

GENERAL NOTE

Plate materials are listed for reference where they are to be used for blind flanges.
For additional details see latest edition of ASME B16.5a-1998 and ASME B16.47-1996.

NOTE

  1. Upon prolonged exposure to temperatures above 800 °F, the carbide phase of steel may be converted to graphite. Permissible, but not recommended for prolonged use above 800 °F.
  2. Not to be used over 850°F.
  3. Not to be used over 700°F.
  4. Not to be used over 500°F.
  5. Upon prolonged exposure to temperatures above 875 °F, the carbide phase of carbon-molybdenum steel may be converted to graphite. Permissible, but not recommended for prolonged use above 875°F.
  6. Not to be used over 1000°F.
  7. Use normalized and tempered material only.
  8. Permissible, but not recommended for prolonged use above 1100°F.
  9. At temperatures over 1000°F, use only when the carbon content is 0.04% or higher.
  10. Not to be used over 800 °F.
  11. At temperatures over 1000°F, use only if the material is heat treated by heating to a minimum temperature of 2000°F.
  12. For temperatures above 1000°F, use only if the material is heat treated to the minimum temperature specified in the specification but not lower than 1900°F, and quenching in water or rapidly cooling by other means.
  13. This material can be used for service temperatures 1050°F and above only when assurance is provided that grain size is not finer than ASTM 6.

NOTE:
Technical data contained in this section governed by ASME or other Codes/Specifications are subject to change and are therefore provided for information purposes only and are not to be used for design purposes. Refer to latest edition of applicable Code/Specification and addendums thereto for required design data.
