API Flange

What is the API Flange?

American Petroleum Institute or API was formed so as to differentiate themselves from the APA flanges. They have the same origin as that of ANSI/ASME flanges, but are quite different from one another. The Api Flanges is designed for handling higher-rated operating pressure. They have high strength and are specifically designed to handle heavy work in oil refinery systems, nuclear power applications, bitumen upgraders, etc.

The Api 650 flanges is very efficient in resisting different types of corrosion like pitting or cracking when exposed to caustic solutions. The Api slip on flanges is the only choice for handling substances such as oil and explosive gasses, which needs high temperature and pressure tolerances. An Api blind flanges and ASME blind flange of the same dimensions might use the same circle and bolt hole, but remember that they are quite different from one another.

Api 10000 instrument flanges is of ring type joint specifically and they are not designed for face-to-face makeup. The bolting force basically reacts on the metallic ring gasket.
