Calculator Description
Flange Gaskets Calculator v1
A database and calculation facility for pipeline and piping flange gaskets according to an internationally recognised design code

Flange Gaskets


Flange gaskets are annular rings of material used to seal fluid pressure between a pair of bolted flanges. Whilst these gaskets can be manufactured from almost any material, flange face hardness, temperature, pressure and chemical resistance are important factors in the selection process.

Along with its material properties, the principal dimensions of a gasket (diameter and width) will normally define the flange bolting requirements and therefore the highest expected stresses in a bolted flange.


Flange Gaskets includes a database of the principal dimensions for 1000 standard piping and pipeline flange gasket designs according to ANSI, API, BS and MSS international standards, ranging from ½" to 60" diameter and includes a calculator for their basic gasket seating width (bₒ) based upon ASME VIII’s Facing Sketches (1a) to (6)

The flange gasket calculator allows you to modify the input data from the database in order to establish basic gasket seating widths for non-standard gaskets.

The output data from Flange Gaskets can be exported to CalQlata's Flanges calculator.

Note: This calculator has not been officially endorsed by ASME. It is CalQlata’s interpretation of the design code calculations.
