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
