Understanding your choice of SAE flanges options
There are several factors to consider when selecting the right SAE flange for a hydraulic system. These include operating pressure, fluid type, temperature range and fitting size.
Operating pressure is the maximum pressure that a hydraulic system can withstand. It is important to select an SAE flange that can withstand the pressure of the hydraulic system to prevent system failure.
The type of fluid is also an important consideration. Some fluids are corrosive and may cause damage to SAE flanges, while others may require specific materials to prevent leakage.
Temperature range is another important factor to consider. Extreme temperatures can cause SAE flanges to expand or contract, which can lead to leaks and system failure.
The fitting size is the size of the hose or tubing to which the SAE flange will be connected. It is important to select an SAE flange that matches the fitting size to prevent leaks and ensure proper flow.
Selecting the proper SAE flange for your hydraulic system is an important decision and should not be taken lightly.
What is a SAE flanges?
SAE flange is used for the connection of various types of pipes in the hydraulic system. Usually by two pipes or pipe fittings first each fixed on the SAE flange, between the two sae flange welded pipe, sealed by o-ring, fastened together with bolts to complete the pipeline connection. sae flange connection is an important connection for pipeline construction can also work to change the direction of pipeline flow.
SAE flanges are important components in hydraulic systems, providing a safe and leak-free connection between hydraulic pumps, motors and other functions. These SAE flanges are designed to withstand high pressures and extreme temperatures, making them an important part of any hydraulic system.
Benefits of Using SAE Flanges
There are several benefits to using SAE flanges in your hydraulic system. First, they provide a secure and leak-free connection that can withstand high pressures and temperatures. This helps to ensure the safety and reliability of your hydraulic system. Second, SAE flanges are easy to install and remove, which makes maintenance and repairs easier. Finally, SAE flanges are available in a wide range of sizes and pressure ratings, which makes them suitable for a wide range of hydraulic applications.
Types of SAE Flanges
Depending on the requirements of the hydraulic system, SAE flanges are usually available on the o-ring side, flat side, or a complete set. As a common type of hydraulic connection, SAE flanges have been widely used in industry.
SAE socket welding flanges
SAE socket welding flange is a common type of hydraulic connection. This type of connection requires the pipe to be inserted into the flange hole and welded. This type of connection provides reliable sealing performance and good corrosion resistance. In addition, the socket weld flange also provides good fluid flow performance inside the pipe because the welding is done inside the pipe.
SAE butt weld flanges
SAE butt-weld flanges are another common type of hydraulic connection. This type of connection requires two flanges to be butted together and then welded. This type of connection provides reliable sealing performance and good corrosion resistance. In addition, because the welding is done between the flanges, the butt weld flange also provides good fluid flow performance inside the pipe.
SAE thread flanges
SAE threaded flanges are a common type of hydraulic connection. This type of connection requires a hole to be cut in the flange, and then the pipe is threaded onto the flange. This type of connection provides reliable sealing performance and good corrosion resistance. In addition, the threaded flanges are easier to maintain and replace because the pipe threads can be easily removed.
SAE Blind Flange
SAE Blind Flanges are designed following the SAE J518 / ISO6162 standards. These are installed in hydraulic applications for the main purpose of blocking a passive pipe or nozzle in the system. SAE Blind Flanges are suited for high-pressure applications in the 3000 and 6000 series. These flanges are available in sizes ranging between 3/8 to 5 inches. Alternatively, they are known as Code 61 and Code 62 designed to work with 3000 PSI and 6000 PSI.
SAE Split Flange
Split Flanges are designed following the SAE J518 standards. Split flanges are identified as one of the most popular flange types and are mostly used due to their ability to withstand high pressure. Alternatively, split flanges are referred to as Code 61 Split Flanges and Code 62 Split Flanges. Split flanges are available in two major pressure series, 3000 PSI and 6000 PSI. The sizes of the split flanges range between 1/2 inch to 5 inches and 1/2 inch to 3 inches (based on the pressure level).
SAE 90D Flange
SAE 90D Flange is designed for high-pressure applications. The available pressure series for the SAE 90D Flange is 3000 PSI and 6000 PSI. SAE 90D Flanges are made following the ISO 6162 / SAE J518 standards. Flange fittings are connected to flanges to create a connection with more than one flange. There are several flange fittings and an SAE 90D flange is one of these. These flange fittings are available in a variety of sizes ranging between 3/8 inches to 5 inches.
Flange adapters are important parts used during the flange coupling process. They are important parts used in piping and hydraulic systems. It is a mechanical device that is to be connected to any flanged device. They are normally used for fluid control over the fluid flow. This means that a flange adapter can join with a flanged part to the bevel end of a tube or a pipe. A flange adapter can also be used in flange pipelines. Some of these pipelines include oil & gas, shipbuilding, or diving system application. But to fully understand what a flange adapter means, it is important to understand the meaning of flange and adapter.
SAE Flange PCD
The PCD of a flange is regarded as one of the most critical dimensions in valves and flow control. PCD stands for Pitch Circle Diameter. It is defined as the diameter of a circle that goes through each of the wheel bolts, studs, wheel rim holes or bolt holes. Flanges are regarded as the perfect example to describe and calculate the Pitch circle diameter. This is because a flange has multiple holes.
Standard for SAE flanges
There are several standards for SAE flanges, including SAE J518C, ISO 6162, and ISO 6164. These standards define the dimensions, materials, and performance requirements for SAE flanges, ensuring they are compatible and interchangeable across different manufacturers and systems.
SAE J518C is North America’s most widely used standard for SAE flanges. It defines the dimensions, pressure ratings, and performance requirements for four-bolt split flange connections with O-ring seals. SAE J518C flanges are available in various sizes, from 1/2″ to 5″, and can withstand pressures up to 6,000 psi.
ISO 6162 is the international SAE flanges standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It defines the dimensions, materials, and performance requirements for four-bolt split flange connections with flat face or O-ring seals. ISO 6162 flanges are available in sizes ranging from DN13 to DN127 and can withstand pressures up to 35 MPa.
ISO 6164 is another international standard for SAE flanges developed by ISO. It defines the dimensions, materials, and performance requirements for four-bolt pad flange connections with flat face or O-ring seals. ISO 6164 flanges are available in sizes ranging from DN13 to DN127 and can withstand pressures up to 35 MPa.
How do SAE flanges work?
A complete set consists of a flat side flange and an O-ring side flange. The O-ring side flange contains a recessed seat for the rubber O-ring (usually made of NBR material). The complete kit forms a seal between the flat face and the O-ring, which is fixed in a circular recess in the other half. Tightening the bolt pulls the two halves together and compresses the O-ring.
The use of the O-ring gives O-ring flanges an advantage over metal-to-metal flanges, as all metal flanges are more prone to leakage because they must be tightened to a higher but narrower torque range. This makes metal-to-metal flanges more prone to striated threads or cracks.
A complete set of flanges is tightened to the recommended torque using socket head cap screws and spring washers. Bolt lengths are typically shorter than the overall length of the SAE flange, but this is normal according to SAE J518. In addition, SAE J518 does not require the use of hex nuts to secure flanges.

Manufacturing process of SAE Flanges
SAE flanges can be produced by forging, casting. We mainly produce flanges by forging, cutting and rolling processes. We will take you through the step-by-step process of manufacturing SAE flanges, from the materials used to the final product.
Step 1: Material Selection
The first step in our manufacturing process is material selection. We use only the highest quality materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, and alloy steel. Each material has its own unique properties and is selected based on the specific needs of the customer.
Step 2: Cutting
Once the materials are selected, they are cut to the desired size using a cutting machine. We use state-of-the-art cutting machines to ensure precision and accuracy in every cut.
Step 3: Heating
After the materials are cut, they are heated to the desired temperature. This helps to reduce any stresses in the material and makes it easier to shape the flange.
Step 4: Forming
The next step in our manufacturing process is forming the flange. We use a hydraulic press to shape the heated material into the desired shape. This ensures that each flange is formed with precision and accuracy.
Step 5: Solid solution
Make the structure and composition of the blank flange uniform, which is particularly important for raw materials. At high temperatures, atomic activity intensifies, σ Phase dissolution, the chemical composition tends to be uniform, and a uniform single-phase structure is obtained after rapid cooling.
Eliminate work hardening to facilitate continuous cold work. The distorted lattice is recovered through solution treatment, the elongated and broken grains are recrystallized, the internal stress is eliminated, the tensile strength of stainless-steel forgings decreases, and the elongation increases.
Restore the inherent corrosion resistance of the flange blank. Due to carbide precipitation and lattice defects caused by cold working, the corrosion resistance of the flange blank is reduced. The corrosion resistance of forgings recovered to the best state after solution treatment.
Step 6: Machining
Once the flange is formed, it undergoes machining to ensure that it is smooth and free from any imperfections. We use CNC machines to achieve the highest level of accuracy in our machining process.
Step 7: Inspection
Before the flange is considered complete, it undergoes a thorough inspection process to ensure that it meets industry standards. Our team of experts inspects each flange to ensure that it is free from any defects and meets the specifications of the customer.
Step 8: Coating
Once the inspection process is complete, the flange is coated to protect it from corrosion and other environmental factors. We offer a variety of coating options, including epoxy, zinc, and galvanized coatings.
Step 9: Packaging and Delivery
Finally, the flange is packaged and prepared for delivery to the customer. We take great care in packaging our products to ensure that they arrive at their destination in pristine condition.
At Guanxin, we take great pride in our manufacturing process of SAE flanges. We are committed to producing high-quality flanges that meet the needs of our customers. Contact us today to learn more about our products and services.
Marking of SAE flanges
The marking of SAE flanges is essential to their manufacture and use. The marking aims to provide information about the flange’s material, size, pressure rating, and other relevant details.
SAE flanges are typically marked by industry standards, such as SAE J518C, ISO 6162, or ISO 6164. These standards specify the required information that must be included on the flange, as well as the format and location of the markings.
The required information typically includes the following:
- Manufacturers trademark or name
- Material Designation
- Rating Designation
- Size Designation
- Product Heat Numbers
- SAE Flange design model
The standard also specifies the location of the marking on the flange. Typically, the marking is placed on the raised face of the flange near the bolt holes. In some cases, the marking may be located on the flange hub or the plate itself.
Packing of SAE flanges
How to package SAE flanges? To pack the SAE flange, follow these steps:
When it comes to packaging SAE flanges, it’s important to ensure that they are properly protected and secured during transportation to prevent any damage. We will walk you through some of the key steps to follow when packaging SAE flanges.
Step 1: Clean and Inspect the Flanges
Before packaging the SAE flanges, it’s essential to clean them thoroughly to remove any dust, dirt, or debris that may have accumulated on them. You can use a cloth or brush to clean the flanges and inspect them to ensure they are free from any defects or damages.
Step 2: Choose the Right Packaging Material
The packaging material you choose should be sturdy and able to provide adequate protection to the flanges during transportation. Ideally, you should use a strong cardboard box or wooden crate that can withstand the weight and size of the SAE flanges.
Step 3: Secure the Flanges
Once you have the packaging material ready, you need to secure the flanges to prevent them from moving around or getting damaged during transit. You can use bubble wrap, foam, or any other suitable cushioning material to protect the SAE flanges from impact or shock.
Step 4: Label the Package
Labeling the package correctly is crucial to ensure that it reaches the intended destination without any confusion. You should clearly label the package with the recipient’s address, contact information, and any other necessary details.
Step 5: Arrange for Shipping
After the package is fully prepared and labeled, it’s time to arrange for shipping. You can use a reliable courier or shipping company to ensure that the package is delivered on time and in good condition.
Packaging SAE flanges requires careful planning and attention to detail. By following the above steps, you can ensure that your flanges are properly protected and arrive at their destination safely. Remember to use high-quality packaging materials, secure the SAE flanges properly, and label the package accurately to avoid any mishaps during transportation.
Inspection and measurement of SAE flanges
There are several factors that need to be considered when inspecting and measuring SAE flanges, including:
The first thing to inspect in a SAE flange is the material. The standard specifies that the flanges should be made from materials such as carbon steel, stainless steel, or alloy steel. The material should be free from any defects such as cracks, porosity, or inclusions that can affect the integrity of the flange.
The surface finish of a flange is also important. The standard specifies that the flanges should have a smooth and even surface finish to ensure proper sealing of the gasket. Any roughness or irregularities on the surface of the flange can lead to leaks in the piping system.
Type of SAE flange
This is considered to be the easiest step. the type of SAE flange is usually printed on the body of the flange. All you need to do is to check the SAE flange. There are different types of flanges, namely SAE flanges, SAE counter flanges, SAE blind flanges, SAE 90D flanges and SAE adapters.
The size of SAE flanges
This is quite a difficult step. When performing this operation, the inside diameter, outside diameter, bolt hole diameter, bolt hole and bolt circle diameter must be calculated.The bolt circle diameter of an SAE flange is considered to be one of the most important measurements when identifying a flange. It is defined as the measurement between the center of the bolt hole and the center of the other bolt hole (the other bolt hole is located on the opposite side of the SAE flange).
Thickness of the SAE flange
The thickness of the SAE flange is important because it can be used to determine the pressure that the SAE flange can withstand. the thicker the SAE flange, the more pressure the flange can withstand. When measuring the thickness, it is important to pay attention to the outer edge of the measurement.
To inspect and measure SAE flanges, you will need a set of calipers or a micrometer to accurately measure the dimensions of the flange. It is also a good idea to have a torque wrench on hand to ensure that the bolts are tightened to the correct torque specification.
Application of SAE flanges
SAE flanges are used in a wide range of hydraulic systems, including mobile machinery, industrial machinery, and marine applications. They are commonly used to connect pumps, motors, cylinders, and valves in a hydraulic system. However, selecting and applying SAE flanges can be challenging, especially for those who are new to hydraulic systems.
How to purchase the correct SAE flanges?
Are you in the market for SAE flanges but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right flanges for your project. We’ll go over some key factors to consider when purchasing SAE flanges to ensure that you make the right decision.
Determine the Material Needed
The first step to purchasing the correct SAE flanges is to determine the material you need. These flanges are available in a variety of materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, and alloy steel. The choice of material will depend on the specific application and environmental conditions. If you’re unsure which material to choose, consult with a qualified engineer or supplier to help guide you in making the right decision.
Identify the Flange Face Type
Flange face types refer to the surface finish of a flange, and there are many different types of flange face finishes, including flat face (FF), raised face (RF), ring-type joint (SAE), tongue and groove (T&G), male and female face (M&F). Each type of flange face has its unique characteristics and is suitable for different applications.
- Flat face (FF): This type of flange face has a flat, smooth surface that is perpendicular to the axis of the pipe. It is typically used for low-pressure applications and when the sealing is achieved by a gasket.
- Raised face (RF): This type of flange face has a raised ring on the surface that surrounds the bolt holes. The ring provides a surface for the gasket to rest on, which helps to create a better seal. It is commonly used in applications with moderate pressure.
- Ring joint face (RTJ): This type of flange face has a specially designed groove to accommodate a metallic ring gasket. The groove is cut into the surface of the flange, and the gasket sits in the groove to create a tight seal. This type of flange face is typically used in high-pressure applications.
- Tongue and groove face (T&G): This type of flange face has a raised tongue on one flange and a matching groove on the other flange. The tongue fits into the groove, creating a tight seal without the need for a gasket. This type of flange face is often used in applications where high pressure and temperature are involved.
- Male and Female Face (M&F): This type of flange face is similar to the tongue and groove face. However, it has a male and female end which creates a face to face contact between two flanges. This type of flange is mainly used for low pressure and low temperature applications.
To identify a specific flange face type, you need to provide me with more information, such as the flange’s application, dimensions, and material.
Determine the SAE flange Size and Pressure Class
Once you have identified the material and SAE flange type, the next step is to determine the size and pressure class of the SAE flange. SAE flanges are available in various sizes and pressure ratings, and it’s crucial to select the correct size and pressure class to ensure that the flange can withstand the intended operating conditions. You should consult the system specifications and design to determine the appropriate size and pressure class.
Look for Quality and Certifications
It’s essential to ensure that the SAE flanges you purchase are of high quality and come with the necessary certifications. Look for suppliers that have a reputation for delivering high-quality products, and check for relevant certifications, such as ISO 9001, API, and CE, to ensure that the flanges meet industry standards.
Consider the Price
While the price should not be the only factor to consider when purchasing SAE flanges, it’s important to compare prices from different suppliers to ensure that you’re getting a fair price. However, remember that the cheapest option may not always be the best quality, so ensure that you’re not compromising on quality in pursuit of lower costs.
Purchasing the correct SAE flanges can be challenging, but by considering the factors outlined in this post, you can ensure that you make an informed decision that meets your project requirements. Remember to consult with experts and compare suppliers to ensure that you’re getting a high-quality product at a fair price.
