What does WNRF flange mean?
Weld Neck Raised Face Flanges
Weld Neck Raised Face Flanges (WNRF)
How do I check my flange rating?
When trying to determine the flange rating of a pump, the best method is to look for a stamp printed onto the flange. If one is not visible, or it is worn, then start by counting the number of bolt holes. This will point you to a narrower range of flange sizes in the chart below.
What does ANSI 150 mean?
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Class 150 is a system of dimensional standards for weld neck, threaded, slip-on, lap joint, socket weld and blind flanges. Dimensions for facing, bolts and studs are also included in ANSI Class 150.
What is RFWN flange?
RFWN Flange (Raised Face Weld neck Flange) are one of the most commonly used flange in the piping industry. They are easy to recognize with their long tapered hub that is matched to the wall thickness (bore) of the pipe.
Why are SORF flange used?
Slip on (SORF) This kind of flange is slipped over the pipe, following which they are welded both on the inside and outside in order to increase its strength and to prevent leakage.
What is WN RF flange?
What is flange bore size?
Size and Bore: Bore refers to the thickness of the pipe wall. Weldneck flanges are typically found in standard (STD), Schedule-10 (S10) and Extra Heavy (XH). To specify a weldneck flange you must match the size and bore to the nominal pipe size and schedule.
Where is SORF flange used?
Slip on (SORF) Designed to be used in low temperature, low pressure processes, slip on flanges are favoured by engineers in the oil and gas industry due to their economical value in comparison to the wnrf.
What is PN 25 pressure rating?
PN (Pressure Nominal) is indicated in bar; for example, PN25 is 25 bar. 1 bar equals 14.5 psi. Sometimes manufacturers will include the psi rating as well. Flanged or lug-style valves are categorized by ANSI flange classes covered under ASME B16 standards.
What is the meaning of PN 16?
Nominal pressure 16 bar; maximum internal allowable pressure (in bar) of a mechanical component, considering a temperature of 20 °C.
What does class 300 flange mean?
A Class 300 flange can handle more pressure than a Class 150 flange, because a Class 300 flange are constructed with more metal and can withstand more pressure. However, there are a number of factors that can impact the pressure capability of a flange.
What is 150 flange pressure rating?
As temperature increases, the pressure rating of the flange decreases. For example, a Class 150 flange is rated to approximately 270 PSIG at ambient conditions, 180 PSIG at approximately 400°F, 150 PSIG at approximately 600°F, and 75 PSIG at approximately 800°F.

- Weld Neck Flanges.
- Slip-on Flanges.
- Threaded Flanges.
- Blind Flanges.
