ASME/ANSI B16.5 Flanges

ASME/ANSI B16.5 is a standard jointly developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for the design, sizing, manufacturing, and testing requirements of flanges and flange connections in piping systems. NPS covering pressure levels 150 to 2500 ½” To NPS 24 “steel pipe flanges and flange fittings. This includes pressure rating, dimensions, tolerances, materials, markings, and testing. It is also known as ASME B16.5 or ANSI B16.5.

Here is a table outlining the specifications and characteristics of ASME/ANSI B16.5 Flanges:

ASME/ANSI B16.5 Flanges Main Features and Specifications Table

This table provides a comprehensive overview of ASME/ANSI B16.5 Flanges, covering key specifications, characteristics, and additional considerations. Specific details and requirements may vary based on the chosen flange type, size, pressure rating, and material.

Installation of ASME/ANSI B16.5 flanges

  1. Preparation work:
    • Prepare the flanges, accessories, and installation tools that need to be connected. Before installation, inspect the flanges to ensure that the model and size are correct and undamaged, and ensure clean performance.
  2. Installing flanges
    • -Fix the flange and pipeline positions in preparation for installation.
    • -Correct installation and matching of gasket material and size with flange.
    • -Ensure that the connection surface is aligned with the bolt holes, use bolts that are sturdy and not too tight, leaving some room for adjustment.
    • -After checking to ensure that the connection is correct, tighten the bolts one by one to ensure that the required tightening force is achieved, to ensure that there is no leakage.
  3. Check flange connections
    • After the flange connection is completed, the pipeline and flange should be checked for alignment, all bolts should be firm, and the pipeline and flange should be checked for alignment and compliance with construction requirements.
  4. Leakage testing
    • Conduct corresponding gas or liquid leakage tests according to project requirements.
  5. Clean up the site
    • Organize the installation tools for future use, and clean up the on-site garbage to ensure a clean and tidy environment.
  6. Record Information
    • Make detailed records of the installed flanges for later inspection and maintenance.

Routine maintenance and upkeep of ASME/ANSI B16.5 flanges

  1. Regular inspections
    • Regular inspections should ensure that the surface of the flange connection is clean and free of debris, especially corrosive substances. If necessary, it should be cleaned in a timely manner.
    • At the same time, it is necessary to regularly inspect the flange surface, connections, and around bolt holes for signs of corrosion, damage, or leakage. If there are any, they must be repaired or replaced in a timely manner.
    • Regularly conduct ultrasonic testing, magnetic particle testing, etc. on the flange connection parts, and promptly repair or replace any problems found.
  2. Regular maintenance
    • Regular tightening checks should be carried out on the flange connection parts, especially the bolts. If any looseness is found, it should be tightened or replaced immediately. At the same time, lubricant should be applied regularly to avoid rusting of the bolts
    • The flange gasket should also be regularly inspected for damage and replaced regularly according to the specified time to ensure a good seal without leakage.
  3. Anti-corrosion treatment
    • For flanges in corrosive environments, it is necessary to regularly apply anti-corrosion paint and use anti-corrosion gaskets to prevent leakage caused by corrosion.
  4. Record maintenance information
    • To use the maintenance registration form to record maintenance information for smooth subsequent work.

If you see “B16.5” on the flange, it indicates that the flange is produced in accordance with the ASME/ANSI B16.5 standard.

Raised Face (RF) and Flat Face (FF).

If you see the ASME mark on the flange, it usually indicates that the flange meets the requirements of the size, material, manufacturing process, and testing method specified in the ASME flange standard.

The size range of ASME/ANSI B16.5 flanges is usually from 1/2 inch to 24 inches. For MM, it is 15 mm to 600 mm, and for pressure, it ranges from Class150-2500.

When choosing ASME/ANSI B16.5 flanges, we need to consider various factors such as the size, pressure, medium, temperature, corrosiveness, and environmental budget of the project pipeline. After comprehensive consideration, if you want professional guidance, you can contact us by email, and professional engineers will provide one-on-one guidance for you.

The two commonly used flange standards internationally are EN flange and ASME/ANSI flange, while the two common standards for ASME/ANSI flange are ASME/ANSI B16.5 small diameter flange standard and ASME/ANSI B16.47 large diameter flange standard. We have produced all of the above standard flanges. If you want to know more about detailed standards and pricing information, please feel free to contact us at any time.
