When a raised face is necessary for blind pipe flanges, the standard height is 1/16″ for blind pipe flanges under 400#. For blind pipe flanges of 400# and up, the standard blind pipe flange raised face height is 1/4″.

Features of blind flanges:

Some important features of blind flanges are as follows:

  • Blind flanges are sometimes supplied with NPT fittings which allow pressure test connections to be fitted.
  • They are used to blank off the ends of pipe.
  • They are also used to blank off the ends of valves and pressure vessel opening.
  • Considering factors like internal pressure and bolt loading, blind flanges, especially in the larger sizes, are the most highly stressed of all types of flanges.
  • Since the maximum stresses in a blind flange are bending stresses at the center, they can safely be allowed to be higher than in other types of flanges.
  • Blind flanges are made to fit standard pipes in all sizes.
