Flange Assembly Demonstration Unit

ASME PCC-1-Based Interactive Training for Proper Flanged Joint Make-up

To better serve our customers and ensure proper use and function of our products, Lamons offers various training sessions with our engineering team. The Flange Assembly Demonstration Unit (FADU) is a live demonstration of a 4” 150-class flange with load-indicating fasteners and a compression sensor. Lamons offers bolt-up and gasket training with operating classroom equipment. This equipment demonstrates bolt stress and interaction, along with the relaxation in a flange connection.

Best Practices Bolt-Up Training

Our engineers will share best practices in bolting up flanges and proper gasket installation in accordance with ASME PCC-1. Using different gaskets, our engineers will illustrate:

  • Scattered bolt load and cross talk
  • Gasket relaxation using different gaskets
  • Proper lubrication
  • Use of washers
  • Using torque, combination, or box wrenches
  • Bolt/stud tensile/yield strength
  • Legacy/cross pattern bolt-up
  • Body positioning and proper arm movement

Training Sessions

Our list of training sessions includes the FADU, Gasket 101, Applications-Based Gasket Selection, and others upon request. Training sessions can also be customized to focus on the important aspects of flange bolt-up and/or a plant’s/facility’s established procedures.

Lamons training sessions are offered in a classroom environment at one of our 20 global Lamons facilities, customer sites, or as a virtual webinar.
