How do you define flange size?

Use a measuring tape to determine the diameter of your nipple. The standard flange size is often 24mm, but you may need to select smaller or larger flanges based on your measurement. Compare the diameter of your nipple to the available options.

How is flange rating calculated?

Flange ratings are in accordance with ASME B16. 5. In this standard, flanges are classified based on their pressure-temperature rating which is also known as a flange class. The pound rating (i.e. 150#) denotes that 150 pounds per square inch is the maximum allowable working pressure of that flange.

What is the difference between Class 150 and 300?

A Class 300 flange is rated to a higher pressure than a Class 150 flange, because a Class 300 flange is constructed with more metal and therefore can withstand more pressure.

How do I find the right flange size?

To determine the best flange size for you, you’ll need to measure your nipple. Take a tape measure or ruler and measure the diameter, or width across, of your nipple in millimeters. Do not include measurements for your areola, the larger part around your nipple. Select your flange size based on your measurement.

Do slipon flanges have a wall thickness?

The slip-on flange is positioned so the inserted end of the pipe or fitting is set back or short of the flange face by the thickness of the pipe wall plus 1/8 of an inch . This allows for a fillet weld inside the SO flange equal to the thickness of the pipe wall without doing any damage to the flange face.

What is the size of a toilet flange?

The typical toilet flange has a 4-inch diameter and 3-inch diameter to mate with 3-inch schedule 40 pipe. Some, more versatile flanges include both a 4 inch and 3 inch connection option. The flanges slide over 3 inch pipe and into 4 inch pipe, making them ideal for contractors that encounter both sizes of toilet piping in a home.

What is the diameter of a flange?

Some flanges just have one diameter, typically 3 inches. This is the size of the flange opening and outlet.
