Why is joint integrity so important? Leaks delay production start-up, cause unplanned shutdowns, and always impact budgets negatively. They are unacceptable and can be avoided. Bolted joints can leak In recent years, investigations by the process industries have highlighted the seriousness and importance of preventing leakage: This is how much leaks could cost you: For example, UK HSE (1) found that on average 243 leaks occurred per year offshore for the period 1992-2002, 17% of which occurred from bolted joints. • 3” 1500 lb gas line shut down due to insufficient service bolt load: Lost...

To assess your current joint integrity status, Hydratight conducts a Gap Analysis. This involves introducing an Integrity Engineer into your organisation to identify areas that currently fall short, meet or exceed our joint integrity requirements. Over a one-two week period our engineer will cover: • Planning and control measures associated with critical and non-critical joints • Effectiveness and robustness of procedures Training & Competence Awareness Measurement of Performance Risk Analysis • Traceability and data management procedures • Criticality and classification methods of joints •...

Lubrication and Bolt Load Evaluation Manufacturers’ assumed torque values are often based on laboratory conditions, which can lead to incorrect coefficient of friction values. To provide the most accurate readings, our service is based on genuine site conditions. Bolt loads can be measured in two ways – using ultrasonicss or hydraulic calibration nuts – which both measure loads to a high accuracy. Planning Engineers Hydratight engineers often work in customers’ offices to ensure all aspects of joint integrity assurance are identified and planned before the shutdown or construction planning...
