Swivel-Ring Flange
Facilitates bolt-hole alignment

API 6H-0001

The Swivel-Ring Flange permits 360° rotation of an outer ring
around a hub, to allow easy alignment of bolt holes when
attaching to a mating standard flange. For subsea applications,
this capability is important when only a single diver is available
to align and make up the flange connection.
Swivel-Ring Flanges can be designed for any size and pressure
rating to meet applicable dimensions and gasket types of any
recognized flange specification, such as ASME B16.5, API 6A or
MSS SP-44. Nonstandard Swivel-Ring Flanges can also be custom-designed for certain applications; for example, applications
involving large pipelines may incorporate features such as hub
face profiles to aid axial alignment and Teflon rings between the
SRF ring and hub to reduce rotational friction.
Swivel-Ring Flanges are available from stock in diameters from
4 inches through 24 inches, in both 600 and 900 ANSI ratings.
Up through 16-inch, SRFs are stocked with schedule 80 bores;
20-inch and 24-inch have schedule 60 bores. The material for
inventory SRF hubs is ASTM A694, grade F52. For reference,
dimensional data for most ANSI and MSS RTJ Swivel-Ring
Flanges are given in the tables on the back of this sheet.
Design Specifications
Swivel-Ring Flanges meet the requirements of API 6H and are
designed in accordance with ASME Pressure Vessel Code, Section
VIII, Division 2, unless otherwise specified, and applicable sections of the flange specification to which it will mate.
Ordering Information
Please provide the following information on any purchase order
or request for quotation:
• Nominal pipe size
• Pipe wall thickness or bore
• Pipe grade
• Design rating
• Specification of mating flange
• Gasket type

3-inch through 24-inch Swivel-Ring Flanges are kept in inventory, in
a wide range of ANSI and MSS ratings.
