The 130-year-old American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has set the standard for mechanical engineers in over 100 countries worldwide.

ASME also sets the standards for flanges and bolt dimensions through the ANSI accredited ASME Standard B 16.5 ensuring all gasket and flange fittings are consistent and fit for purpose allowing a high quality seal.

Below are the standard measurements for flanges and their relevant bolts and holes size - a very useful tool for any onsite machinist.
