Dismantle, Assemble and Hydraulically Torque Flanged Joints


Available in Aberdeen, Teesside (Middlesbrough), Yorkshire, Ellesmere Port, Midlands, Humberside and the South West.
We can also deliver training on-site by utilizing our unique Mobile Training Rigs (FADU – Flange Assembly Demonstration Unit).

Course objectives:

The course delivers the theoretical and practical elements involved in the Hydraulic Torque tightening of Bolted Connections and provides an assessment of delegate’s competence in applying these procedures. It covers the selection of components for the various types of flange connections found in the Oil and Gas, Petrochemical and Processing Industries materials focusing on gaskets /sealing elements and bolting materials.
