Are there any hard and fast rules as to the extent of corrosion resistant alloy weld overlay required on subsea flange faces? I am in a debate about whether only the ring groove should be overlaid or if overlay of the full flange face is required. The overlay alloy would be Alloy 625.
The question applies to ANSI or API flanges - but I am specifically concerned with API 6A flanges.
