Flange Live Loading in High-Temperature Environments

Areas subject to high temperatures and thermal cycling can cause stress to flange joints, causing the bolted connections to lose tension and leak fugitive emissions. Flange live loading with flange washers maintain sufficient bolt tension and resultant gasket stresses in high-temperature and high-pressure applications.
  • High temperature pipe flanges 
  • Fertilizer plant
  • Heat exchangers
  • Reactors
  • Boilers

ANSI Flange Live Loading Calculator

Increase the value of the live loading system by using our calculator tool to quickly design a live loading system for flange applications. This interactive tool assists with the design of the flange washer system based on inputs relative to flange size, environment and bolting information under normal assembly conditions. Output includes the recommended Solon Flange Washers, stacking arrangement and quantity recommendations and assembly notes, along with quick access to specification reports and the capability to submit a quote request directly to our sales team.
