Notes

Claudia's Notes:
ASME B16.5 is used for flanges and flanged fittings made from cast or forged materials.  It also covers blind flanges and certain reducing flanges made from case, forged, or plate materials.  If you need information on flange bolting, flange gaskets and flange joints, you'll find it here too.
