This API flange mates with a 10" 600 CLASS RTJ, ANSI B 16.5
flange. The resulting connection has a working pressure of 1440
with "R" ring grooves can connect and seal with either
R or RX
ring gaskets. RX gaskets increase the stand-off between flanges, and
studs shown in the illustration above have sufficient length to accommodate RX
gaskets in these connections. In some cases equipment design may
restrict clearance and shorter studs will increase convenience. For
information on these shorter stud lengths, see AWHEM document TR9501 at www.awhem.org/docs.htm.

when using R or RX gaskets click here.
The difference in
stand-off between R and RX gaskets can cause alignment problems on
close coupled manifolding or pressure
controlling loops. Assembly designers specify component dimensions
which allow for the
difference in stand-off between flanges when choosing either R or RX
gaskets. When operators perform maintenance that involves
disassembly, trouble free reassembly requires using gaskets the
same as the gaskets originally chosen.
