Assisting Companies in the Establishment and Implementation of Bolted Joint Integrity Management
Unfortunately, catastrophes have happened due to poor bolted joint integrity management. Flanges have failed causing millions of dollars in damage and preventable fatalities. In one case, an improperly outfitted connector leaked even after passing a leak test, which ultimately caused an explosion.The risk is great. Surprisingly, however, most major companies still operate without a comprehensive and current set of policies, processes and procedures in place related to bolted joints.
TEAM Industrial Services' bolted joint integrity services go beyond just tightening the joint. Our comprehensive program offering provides analysis, development of procedures, engineering support, training, inspections and more. This includes proper training and competency management, utilization of the right tools and components, and the development of a set of processes and procedures to ensure each step along the way is clear, concise, and repeatable throughout company facilities.
TEAM’s internal procedures are ASME PCC-1 compliant assuring that we perform all bolting activity from break out, inspection and assembly to the tightening in accordance with a well-defined standard and industry accepted standard.Additionally, TEAM can provide Joint Integrity Engineers to manage all items related to flange management as well as certified Joint Integrity Inspectors to support TEAM’s work or the work of any contractor on site.
