Raised Face Height

For the height measures H and B of all described dimensions of flanges on this website, with exception of the Lap Joint Flange, it is important to understand and remember the following..

In Pressure Classes 150 and 300, the height of raised face is approximately 1.6 mm (1/16 inch).
In these two Pressure Classes, almost all suppliers of flanges, show in their catalog or brochure, the H and B dimensions including the raised face height. See figure 1 on the image below.

In Pressure Classes 400, 600, 900, 1500 and 2500, the height of raised face is approximately 6.4 mm (1/4 inch). In these Pressure Classes, most suppliers show the H and B dimensions excluding the raised face height. See figure 2 on the image above.

The height and thickness measurements of flanges on wermac.org show all dimensions including the raised face height.
