FLANGE FACINGS
6-1

7-0

Flanges shall be manufactured in accordance with the


following standards:

Flanges shall be furnished with raised faces, in


accordance with MSS SP-6 standard or as specified in
the purchase order.

MATERIAL
7-1

All flanges shall be suitable for field welding at


temperatures down to 0C and shall be furnished heat
treated by:
Normalizing: in accordance with paragraph 5.2.2. Of
ASTM A105.
Quenched and tempered in accordance with paragraph 2.1
of MSS-SP44.

7-2

Material for flanges up to and including 20 inch


nominal pipe size shall have minimum tensile yield
strength of 42,000 psi, unless otherwise specified.
Material conforming to ASTM Specification A-105 grade
II or B.S 1503 grade C may be acceptable subject to
flange design giving satisfactory weld transitions of
flange hub pipe.
The carbon equivalent shall not exceed a value of 0.40%
when based on the formula:

CE C

Mn Si Cr Mo Ni Cu

0.40%
6
16

7-3

Material for flanges over 20 inch nominal pipe size


shall possess the minimum requirements specified in
section 7.2 above but material with a yield point up to
60.000 psi may be used if approved by the purchaser.

7-4

The following test specimens shall be taken from one


forging selected from the quantity supplied.
a)

b)

Two tensile specimens taken from the disc of the


flange, one specimen having its lengthwise axis
directionally normal to flange bore and the second
specimen taken with its lengthwise axis
directionally at right angles to the equivalent
axis of the first specimen. Reference figure 2(C)
of ASTM specification A-370.
Three charpy V-notch impact test specimens, each
two-third size as specified in ASTM Specification
E.23, taken from the hub and as near the weld end
as practical, with their lengthwise axis
tangential to the flange bore and the three
specimens equi-spaced around the hub.
Tests shall be carried out at-10 C (14F) and the
average valve obtained from the three test results
shall be a minimum of approximately 2.1 kgfm (15
1b .f) with no individual test being less than 1.4
kgfm (10 1b .F)

8-0

TRANSITION PIECES
8-1

Weld neck flanges of 24 inch nominal bore and over


shall be furnished with 50 centimeter transition pieces
welded to the flange hubs.

8-2

Transition pieces shall be of grade 5LX pipe of nominal


wall thickness and with weld end preparation to suit
the adjoining pipe as specified in the purchase order.

8-3

If required, details of a typical weld neck flange/

transition piece fabrication shall be given by the


purchaser.

accordance with the ASME Boiler and Pressure
Vessel Code, sections VIII and IX and BS-1515
part 1 as summarized hereunder.
9-1
