Flange rating is the maximum pressure a flange can withstand at increasing temperature. A flange with a higher rating is stronger in comparison with the flanges with a lower rating because they can withstand more pressure.

There are seven pressure ratings for a flange which are 150, 300, 400, 600, 900, 1500, and 2500.
