Replacing Body Flanges

If it is determined that flange replacement is needed, use the following procedure:
• Choose optimal gasket for the service conditions required.
• Use the PCFLANGE program to determine the new flange thickness. Generally flanges designed to the Chevron method will be thicker than the ASME flanges.
• Use integral body flanges if possible.
• Follow ASME Code procedures for replacing and inspecting the flanges.
