ALLOWABLE PRESSURE RATINGS FOR PIPES AND


FLANGES
The information included on this page is to be used as
a guide only in the pre-selection of pipe and flange sizes for
various temperatures and pressures.
When calculating thickness requirements in accordance
with the ASME code for safe pressure vessel design, stress
values may often be less than shown in Table 1.
