Flange Management Bolt Torque

Process system integrity problems result from a number of issues,including incorrect joint assembly, improper tightening methods, ineffective flange tagging systems, and the lack of a formal flange control / management system.

A flange management system can assure that all process system flanges are identified and have been mechanically completed in a controlled manner that helps minimize, and in most cases eliminates, integrity-related issues (such as leaks) at startup.
