- Before installation, thoroughly inspect the Class 600 flanges, gaskets, bolts, and nuts to ensure they are in good condition, free from defects, and compatible with the system.
3. Flange Alignment:
- Ensure proper alignment of the flanges and the pipeline. Misalignment can lead to uneven pressure distribution and leakage.
4. Gasket Selection:
- Choose the appropriate gasket material based on the fluid, temperature, and pressure of the system. Ensure that the gasket is the correct size and thickness for the flange.
5. Flange Faces:
- Ensure that the flange faces are clean, smooth, and free from debris, rust, or other contaminants that could compromise the seal.
- Use the correct type and grade of bolts and nuts specified for Class 600 flanges. Ensure that they are properly lubricated and tightened to the recommended torque values in a crisscross pattern to achieve even pressure distribution.
7. Proper Torque:
- Tighten bolts gradually and evenly to the recommended torque values. Over-tightening can damage the flange or gasket, while under-tightening can result in leaks.
8. Gasket Installation:
- Place the gasket carefully between the flange faces, ensuring proper alignment. Avoid over-compressing or twisting the gasket during installation.
9. Bolt Tightening Sequence:
- Follow the specified bolt tightening sequence for the flange type (e.g., star pattern or circular pattern) to ensure uniform compression of the gasket.
10. Inspection After Tightening:
– After tightening the bolts, inspect the flange joint for any visible gaps or misalignment. If issues are detected, address them immediately.
11. Pressure Testing:
– Conduct a pressure test, if required, to check for leaks and ensure the integrity of the flange joint. Follow industry-standard procedures for pressure testing.
– Maintain comprehensive records of the installation, including torque values, pressure test results, and any deviations from the recommended procedures.
– In some cases, it may be necessary to perform a retightening of the bolts after the initial installation or after the system has been subjected to pressure and temperature changes. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for retightening.
14. Periodic Inspections:
– Implement a regular inspection and maintenance schedule to check for signs of wear, corrosion, or degradation of the flanges, gaskets, and bolts. Replace any components that show signs of deterioration.
15. Training and Expertise:
– Ensure that personnel responsible for flange installation are adequately trained and possess the necessary expertise in high-pressure system maintenance and safety.
