Standards comparison query

I am required in as brief a space of time as possible to answer a query :

The essential differences between API 6A ( Well Head/Xmas Tree Applications ) and API 5000 Type 6B

Any assistance on this query is appreciated

RE: Standards comparison query

API 5000 6B is the old nomenclature for a 5000 psi API flange. The specifications for this flange which are now included in API 6A.

RE: Standards comparison query

Thanks for the clarification - your assistance is appreciated.

RE: Standards comparison query

If you would like a full range of information about API 6A flanges and specified products, including some history, visit http://www.woodcousa.com/. The web site tools section shows deminsions for every current, and most obsolete and discontinued flanges. Also you will find explanations of 6B, 6BX, etc. Look for explanations of PSL levels, temperature ranges, etc. in the appendix sections of the catalogs on this site.

RE: Standards comparison query

thanks for your  help - will pursue this website
