Hi everyone, I'd like to pose this question about ASTM A694 flanges. We once received an inquiry regarding ASTM A694 Gr.F65 WN 6" SCH80 600# flanges manufactured to ASME B16.5. Since the inquiry is coming from BP(Iraq), I don't think this big company may make such mistakes. However, A694 materials are not endorsed by B16.5. It really confuses me. Does that mean the client already performed necessary calculation to support this practice? All we need to do is to find the proper F65 material(of course no problem) and manufacture according to the dimensional requirements of B16.5? Besides, in MSS SP 44, there is carbon equivalent requirement for A694 materials. Is it applicable to the small sizes made to B16.5. Your help is highly appreciated.
Functional prototypes are a key step in product development â€“ they give engineers a chance to test new ideas and designs while also revealing how the product will stand up to real-world use. And when it comes to functional prototypes, 3D printing is rewriting the rules of whatâ€™s possible. Download Now
