Pipe flanges have been used in industry, particularly in chemical and petroleum refineries, since the late 1800s. Two problems encountered in the early days were standardization and prevention of leakage.
Standardization was quickly dealt with, because originally, each manufacturer had its own flange design, and confusion occurred when different manufacturers were interconnecting their equipment with piping systems. That also to a fair degree reduced flange leakage.
However, a method was really required to enable the manufacturer to know how to design flange for itself. Relief came in 1937, when The American Society of Mechanical Engineers introduced a procedure in its Section VIII code. However, leakage still exists. This presentation will address some of the problems that promote leakage.
The webinar will be hosted by Ray Delaforce, Senior Support Engineer at Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions.
