Differences between ASME B16.5, B16.47, B16.48, and B16.36 flanges
When it comes to pipe flanges, it’s important to choose the right type for your specific needs. Different types of flanges are designed for different applications, and each has its own unique set of specifications and features. At Haihao Group, we offer a wide range of high-quality pipe flanges, including ASME B16.5, B16.47, B16.48, and B16.36 flanges, to meet the diverse needs of our customers.
ASME B16.5 flanges are the most commonly used type of flanges in the industry. B16.5 flanges are ideal for use in piping systems that operate at pressures from 150psi to 2500 psi and temperatures up to 1100°F.
B16.47 flanges, also known as Large Diameter Steel Flanges, are designed for use in high-pressure and high-temperature applications. These flanges come in two different types: Series A and Series B. Series A flanges are known as MSS SP44 flanges and have a larger diameter than Series B flanges. B16.47 Series A flanges are designed for use in high-pressure piping systems that operate at pressures up to 900 psi and temperatures up to 850°F, while B16.47 Series B flanges are designed for use in even higher pressure systems that operate at pressures up to 1500 psi and temperatures up to 850°F.
B16.48 flanges, also known as Spectacle Blinds, are used to isolate sections of a piping system. They consist of two metal disks with a hole in the center and are designed to be installed between two flanges. Spectacle blinds are ideal for use in piping systems that require frequent maintenance or where isolation of a specific section of the pipeline is necessary.
B16.36 flanges are specifically designed for orifice flange applications. Orifice flanges are used in systems that require flow measurement or flow control. B16.36 flanges come in a range of sizes and materials and can be customized to meet the specific requirements of your application.
At Haihao Group, we understand that choosing the right type of pipe flange can be challenging. That’s why we offer a wide range of flanges, including ASME B16.5, B16.47, B16.48, and B16.36 flanges, to meet the diverse needs of our customers.
