Flange Clamp

We also offer a Flange Clamp that can be installed permanently on flanged joints and mechanical connections to strengthen or securing the connection.  The Flange Clamp is designed with an increased fatigue life compare to what the flange bolts in a standard flange can achieve.

Design basis for the Flange Clamp
• Controlling the gasket stress to maintain a leak free gasket at maximum loading even if several of the original flange bolts should fail
• Prevent gasket crushing by including Backstops to counteract the tools pretension
• Impact tested low temperature materials to withstand low temperatures in case of any depressurization of the system
• Pressure tested to 1.5 X the design pressure on test flanges with all flange bolts removed
• ASME VIII design calculation
