Revision No.

1. General
Scope
This specification covers the general requirements for tightening of piping connection.
Reference
Piping shall be complied with the requirements of the following codes, standards and Purchaser
requirements.
ASME B31.3, 2004 edition and 2004 addenda
2. Application of Tightening
Make sure the flanges are clean and free of any serious defects.
Place the gasket on flange surface to be sealed, bringing the opposing flange into contact with the
gasket.
Center the gasket on the flange, which important for raised face flange.
Clean bolts and lubricate them with graphite and oil mixture.
Place the stud bolt into bolt hole and finger tightens the nuts.
Tighten the bolts correctly to compress gasket uniformly
Use torque wrench and well-lubricated fasteners to ensure correct initial loading.
Do not tighten bolts more than 30% of recommended bolt stress during the initial tighten sequence.
This will cause cooking of flange and crushing of the gasket
Do not clockwise bolt to bolt torque checks upon reaching recommended torque requirements to
ensure bolts have been stressed. It is important to pre-stress the bolts to ensure continuance of an
adequate stress load in operating conditions.
3. Acceptance Criteria
Torque values conform to table attached.
No leakage in flange joint during pressure test.
