A blind flange is a solid disk used to block off a pipeline or to create a stop. It is machined in the same manner as a regular flange with the mounting holes around the perimeter and the gasket sealing rings machined into the mating surface. The difference is that a blind flange has no opening to allow fluid to pass through. The blind flange can be inserted between two open flanges and used to block off the flow of liquid through a pipeline.
In Australia the BS and AS flange standards are essentially the same but have been metricated. Consequently metric sizes are stated as ‘DN’ (Nominal Diameter) in mm. Equivalent imperial sizing is rounded to the nearest multiple of 25mm (for 2” and over) as below. However the actual dimensions and bore sizes have not changed. ‘NB’ (Nominal Bore) is also sometimes used when referring to valve sizes.
AS2129 originates from BS10 and has been metricated. In some cases slightly larger bolt holes provide better clearance as metric bolts are specified in lieu of UNC bolts used by BS10. AS4087 is an update of AS2129, however AS2129 is still widely used so it has not been deleted as a standard, however, it now only covers AS table D to H.
