Head flanged joint with shell

Head flanged joint with shell

Head flanged joint with shell



I have one shell ( seamless pipe ) with two dished end.

The top head has to be joint with shell with #150 WNRF Flange .

The thing is in compress If I use ASME B16.5 Flange I cannot put Two flanges bolted together in top. I can put only one .

I can do this only If I use Appendix 2 flanges . But for my case I have standard flange .

Anyone advise me how to put two standard flanges between top head and shell in compress ?

RE: Head flanged joint with shell

I think if you had written to Codeware Technical Support they would have told you that ASME B16.5/B16.47 body flanges can only be attached to an existing shell-type component (cylinder, cone, head) and cannot be attached to another existing ASME B16.5/B16.47 body flange. Thus you must model both the cylinder and the head, then you can add the two body flanges to their appropriate parent component.

eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
