SCOPE
This procedure describes the methods of bolt tightening by the use of calibrated hydraulic
tensioning equipment and manual torque wrenches for IGD-DAS project piping.
The hydraulic bolt tensioning work shall be carried out on all flange bolts diameter 1.1/2 and
larger diameter size. All bolts below 1.1/2 shall be torqued by manual, electric or hydraulic
method.
For equipment flange bolt tightening work, HHI shall obtain all the information such as drawings
or data sheets required for bolt tightening from equipment vendor and shall apply the vendor
recommended bolt tightening values.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

3.1

Special attention shall be paid to this work as bolt tensioning utilizes high pressure hydraulic
oil (maximum 15,000 psi) and shall be conducted diligently, thoroughly and in a safe workman
like manner complying with, as a minimum, COMPANY requirements / expectations.
Perfect thread engagement between the components shall be identified prior to tensioning
work.
Electrical equipment shall be equipped with correct grounding, cables shall be isolated and not
damaged. Only clean and undamaged bolts and nuts, of the correct grade shall be used.

3.2

Bolt tightening work shall be diligently performed in accordance with Project Health, Safety
and Environmental management plan procedure.

For high elevation or remote area work, suitable scaffolding with safe access shall be erected.
Scaffolding will be suitable for personnel and weight of equipment and mechanical handling
facilities will be provided where necessary. Working at heights will be in full compliance with
COMPANYs requirements / expectations. ADGAS scaffolding inspectors will check its
suitability for the imposed load of operators, torquing equipment and materials.
The operators shall be careful not to drop any components during placing or removing the bolt
tensioning equipment and area below the activity shall be barriered off.

3.4

The operators shall be equipped with safety glasses, hard hats, gloves and safety shoes.

3.5

Operators shall be experienced with bolt tightening or tensioning before they start their activity
for the IGD-DAS project to the requirements of this procedure in correct use of the equipment
for their own safety and that of others. Operators shall keep the calibration certificate which is
carried out by HHI calibration shop with the equipment they are using.

This document shall be applicable for fabrication & installation at yard as well as module

4.1

Torque and Tensioning


Tolerance for rotation and alignment of the flanged joints shall be followed in accordance with
fabrication and installation procedure for process and utility piping (GD-100-A4Z-5-90503) and
ASME B31.3(2008).
Bolt tightening methods are divided into bolt torque and bolt tensioning according to the
used tools.
Bolt torque is done by torque wrench operated by manual, electric, and hydraulic.
Bolt tensioning is done by utilizing of hydraulic tensioner, and HHI uses HYDRATIGHT product.
All flanges and clamp bolts shall be checked for correct grade and damage prior to fittings.
Bolts and nuts shall be visually inspected prior to use for physical damage, dirt or girt that would
interfere with the assembly or performance. Ensure that gaskets are correct per project
specification and free of any damage.

4.2

Lubricant application
For all bolts/nuts, torque and tensioning, lubricant shall be applied to make it easier to tighten
nuts, and loose when disassembled.

BOLT TORQUE
For bolt sizes less than 1.1/2, bolts shall be assembled by torque wrench.

5.1

Assembly instructions by torque wrench


The following bolt-up procedure is to ensure that bolts are uniformly tightened so the gasket is
not prematurely set.
a) After verifying that the gasket type, size and material are in accordance with the
specifications, align the gasket between the flange faces and secure.
b) After verifying that the bolts size and type are in accordance with the specification, install
bolts and nuts by hand, applying lubricant and keeping the thread even.
c) With a short hand wrench, lightly tighten all the bolts using the crisscross bolting pattern.
Verify that the gap between the flanges is uniform.
d) Tighten all bolts/nuts with correct torque value with torque wrench.
Tightening shall be carried out complying with steps of 30%, 60%, 100% or 50%, 100%.
e) Check passing is also critical to ensure all bolts achieve the final target torque as setting
will occur during the tightening process on bolted flanges and on hub connector clamps.
f) A hammer tap test will be carried out before signing off the bolt torquing report, this to
ensure that tight thread etc. have not achieved target load.

General

1A
8 / 24

For bolt sizes 1.1/2 and larger, hydraulic bolt tensioner shall be used for tightening.
Prior to tensioning of bolts, the hydraulic pump, interconnection hose, bridge, puller, head and
socket shall be checked for any damage or imperfections.
The equipment gauge shall be calibrated so that gauge indicates the correct specific pressure.
Soft brushing of stud bolts and nuts will be required to remove solid particles.
6.2

The operator shall set the correct hydraulic pressure to achieve the specified bolt tension value
for each stud bolt size referring to the tension value tables in ATTACHMENT #1 and #2.

6.3

PB is the final tension pressure which flange bolts should be tightened, and PA is the first
tension pressure which is the greater than PB.
For each step, from the first tension pressure PA to the last tension pressure PB, tension
pressure shall be reduced at a fixed rate for each tensioning. HHI shall prepare the tensioners
to reduce the tensioning times and not to exceed 4 times tensioning.

6.4

The operator shall distribute hydraulic heads over the bolts in a manner to ensure uniform
tensile forces in order not to damage gaskets during tightening.

1) Bolts shall be free running and in good engagement with the tensioner.
2) Assemble the bolt with minimum one bolt diameter on the end to be tensioned and
minimum one thread at untensioned end.
3) Position the socket over the hexagon nut.
4) Place the hydraulic head and bridge assembly over the bolt.
5) Locate the end of the bolt with the puller and screw down onto the ram.
6) Connect the hydraulic coupling to the pump. Apply the tightening oil pressure referring to
the attached values. Turn the hexagon nut using a tommy bar until the nut tightens onto the
flange.
7) Remove the tool.
6.6

Above instructions shall be repeated as per the tensioning plan decided by piping foreman
until all bolts are evenly tensioned.

ATTACHMENT #6 : GRE FLANGES BOLTING SEQUENCE AND TORQUING VALUES


Assembly instructions for Bondstrand Fiberglass flanges
1. Scope
These instructions present AMERONs recommendations for the proper use of Bondstrand
fibreglass flanges.
The mounting of flanges on the pipe is addressed by the assembly instructions for the
particular joint type and adhesive used.
2. Bolt torque value for GRE pipe
Heavy Duty (HD) type flange
The heavy duty type flanges are used for pressures up to 50 barg. HD type flanges are
available with a Quick-lock (size 1~16 inch) or Taper/Taper (size 2~40 inch) adhesive bonded
joint. Heavy duty type flanges can be used when connecting to raised faced metal flanges and
wafer type valves.
Stub-end (Lap joint) type flange.
Stub-end type flanges are suitable for high pressures upto 100 bar. Stub end flanges can be
supplied with an O-ring groove or a flat in combination with suitable gasket. Stub-end type
flanges are available with a quick-lock(size 1~16 inch) or taper/taper (size 2~40 inch) adhesive
bonded joint. Stub-end type flanges can be used when connecting to raised faced metal flange
and wafer type valves.
2.1 Bolt and nut specification for GRE
Bolt and nut is studs A193 B7, Hh nuts A194 2H zinc-plated / bichromate-treated, which
are the same bolt/nut with carbon steel piping.

4. Flange Jointing
Place the gasket between the two
flange faces.

Insert the bolts and finger- tighten all


nuts. Bolt threads must be clean and
lubricated to attain proper torque.
Use lubricated washers under both
nuts and bolt heads to protect flange
back face.

Tighten all nuts following the


sequences shown under tightening
sequence. Do not exceed the torque
increments given in Recommended
bolt torques.
After all bolts have been tightened to
the recommended torque, re-check
the torque on each bolt in the same
sequence, since previously tightened
bolts may have relaxed.
