ASME B16.21-2016 pdf download.Nonmetallic Flat Gaskets for Pipe Flanges.
1 SCOPE This Standard covers types, sizes, materials, dimen- sions, tolerances, and markings for nonmetallic flat gaskets. These gaskets are dimensionally suitable for use with flanges described in the referenced flange standards. 2.6 Size NPS, followed by a dimensionless number, is the desig- nation for nominal pipe size, as described in ASME B36.10M and is related to the reference nominal diameter, DN, used in international standards. The relationship is as follows: NPS DN 2 GENERAL 1 ∕ 2 15 2.1 Relevant Units This Standard states values both in SI (metric) and U.S. Customary units. As an exception, diameter of bolts and flange bolt holes are expressed in inch units only. These systems of units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the U.S. Customary units are shown in parentheses or in separate tables. 2.2 Quality Systems Requirements relating to the product manufacturers’ quality system programs are described in Nonmandatory Appendix A. 2.3 References Standards and specifications adopted by reference in this Standard are shown in Mandatory Appendix II. 2.4 Flanged Joints A flanged joint is composed of separate and indepen- dent, although interrelated, components: the flanges, gasket, and bolting, which are assembled by another influ- ence, the assembler. Proper controls must be exercised in the selection and application for all these elements to attain a joint that has acceptable leak tightness. Additional guidelines for flange assembly can be found in ASME PCC-1 (see Nonmandatory Appendix B).
2.7 Pressure Class Designation Class, followed by a dimensionless number, is the desig- nation for common flange pressure–temperature ratings as given by the referenced flange standards. 3 MATERIALS 3.1 Composition Gaskets shall be made of resilient or pliable materials. Metal or nonmetal composites may be incorporated as reinforcement or filler material. 3.2 Service Requirements Selection of a material suitable for a given service appli- cation is the responsibility of the user subject to the requirements of any applicable code or government regu- lation. The material selected shall be compatible with the fluid and suitable for the pressure–temperature condi- tions of the service.
