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.
