Where can I find "M" and "Y" values for flange design?
See our Engineered Gasketing catalog. These values are used to design flanges for pressure vessels using the ASME Code.
Note: Our testing shows an increase in "M" and "Y" values as gasket thickness increases. This is the opposite of the trend found in the ASME Code. Fugitive emission and gasket blowout studies have validated this trend.
