Tapped Hole for Lifting Eyebolt

Postby williamhawk » 27 Sep 2017, 13:47

Similar questions seem to have been asked in the past but nothing I can find for lifting activities.
We are looking at possibly tapping the outer diameter of some large blind flanges to attach a lifting eyebolt. I'm trying to understand if there is a minimum edge distance between the tapped hole and the faces of the flange?
I've heard rules of thumb but surely there is a requirement for this scenario, especially when we are working with lifting equipment.
Any suggestions as to codes/standards that contain the correct information would be greatly appreciated.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
