This webinar will help solve and prevent one of the most costly bolting errors ever. Leaks and joint failures in pipes, valves and tanks cost millions in lost product, pollution, clean-up costs, down time, repairs, fires, explosions, and even injury and death. There is a lot of risk involved with gasketed joints. The proper selection and installation of the fasteners is essential to controlling that risk.
Gasketed joints are used in water infrastructure, refineries, food processing plants, all kinds of engines, aerospace, chemical and pharmaceutical operations and the oil and gas industry. These joints seal in every imaginable kind of liquid and gas – water, steam, air, acids, sewage, alcohol, foods, fuels, reactor coolants, crude oil, natural gas, cryogenic fluids, and even beer and wine!
You only get one chance to get a gasketed joint right and it takes training and proper bolting to ensure the job is done right the first time. While most bolting suppliers may not be gasket suppliers or experts in gasketed joints, they can certainly bring value by having the necessary technical resources available to their customers.
This webinar will cover the following topics:
This is a technical webinar but is appropriate for all positions and levels of experience in the fastener industry.
It is appropriate for bolting suppliers to invite their infrastructure clients to view this webinar. There is some math – so have a calculator handy – it is very simple.
This webinar is essential for suppliers and users of bolts in gasketed joints who wish to control the tremendous risk associated with this bolting application.
