Flange management

Leak free start‑ups and long‑term reliability matched to your maintenance schedules.

A fully project managed implementation of products, maintenance and technical support on critical flanges to ensure leak free bolted connections.

We offer a service that ensures that once joints have been formed, they stay that way; maximising uptime, reducing leaks and keeping expensive product loss to a minimum.

Our experience and expertise helps to optimise operational performance and meet the most challenging application conditions using a proven four stage process involving limit analysis software.

This process allows us to calculate the operational stresses of the gasket, fasteners and flanges throughout the operational cycle to create a detailed picture of the most stressed areas and provide a fastener load optimal for the bolted joint in its entirety.
