Temperature Range, pressure rating and working pressure of SAE hydraulic flange

There are mainly two different pressure ratings for the SAE hydraulic flanges as below.

Working Pressure:
The standard pressure ranges from 34 to 345 bar for code 61 (3000 series) and 200 to 414 bar for code 62 (6000 series). Please take note that the pressure information of the flange and connected equipment combinations may vary from each other. For example: if a pipe connected to the flange has a lower working pressure, it will result in an overall lower working pressure of the system. Therefore, please consider the lowest pressure as the maximum working pressure of this combination.

Pressure rating:

  • Standard pressure series SAE class 3000 flanges: pressure rating 3000 psi with working pressure between 35 bar to 350 bar.
  • High pressure series SAE class 6000 flanges: pressure rating 6000 psi with working pressure maximum 400 bar.

Temperature Range:
The standard working pressure of carbon steel SAE flanges is between -40°C and +120°C. For stainless steel, the standard working pressure is between -60°C and +50°C. Working Pressure for SAE Flanges made from stainless steel and used at elevated temperatures have to be:

  • Reduced by 4%: +50°C to < +100°C
  • Reduced by 11%: +100°C to < +200°C
  • Reduced by 20%: +200°C to < +250°C

Standards of SAE flanges

  • 3000 psi standard pressure series, designed according to standard ISO 6162-1, this is also called code 61 flanges
  • 6000 psi high pressure series, designed according to standard ISO 6162-2, this is also called code 62 flanges.

Materials of SAE hydraulic flanges

SAE flanges are usually available in Carbon steel, 304 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel, other materials also can be supplied on request.

  • Carbon steel SAE flanges
  • Stainless steel SAE flanges: 304, 316,  316L, 316Ti, or equivalent EN/DIN stainless steel grade 1.4301, 1.4401, 1.4404, 1.4571; other grades of stainless steel SAE flanges are available on customers’ request.

Advantages of SAE Flanges:

SAE Flanges / hydraulic SAE Flanges have below advantages:

  • High pressure resistance: 6000 psi SAE Flanges/code 62 flanges can be used under working pressure upto 400 bar(6000psi).

  • Precision dimensions

  • Low cost

Applications of SAE code 61 / code 62 flanges:

As one of the most safety and leak free connect solutions for pipes and tubes, SAE flanges are widely used in pipe and tube systems for pumps and oil-dynamic applications in many industries such as mining, shipbuilding, paper processing, machinery manufacturing, building machinery and so on. Especially suitable for using in hydraulic systems, so they are well known as hydraulic flanges.

How does the SAE flange work?

The whole set includes flat side flange and o-ring side flange. The o-ring side flange contains a groove seat for the rubber o-ring (usually made of NBR material). The entire device forms a seal between the plane and the o-ring, and the o-ring is fixed in the concave circular groove of the other half. Tighten the bolt to pull the two halves together and compress the O-ring.
Due to the use of o-rings, flanges with o-rings have an advantage over metal-to-metal flanges because all metal flanges are more prone to leakage because they must be tightened to a higher but narrower torque range. This makes it easier for metal-to-metal flanges to peel off the threads or crack.
According to the recommended torque, tighten the complete flange with socket head screws and spring washers. The screw length is usually shorter than the total length of the SAE flange, but according to the SAE J518 standard, this is normal. In addition, according to SAE J518, there is no requirement for a hex nut for a fixed flange.
