Joint Integrity Training

We provide BS EN 1591:2013 and ASME PCC-1:2013 (Appendix A) training courses to help prove competency in the making of bolted flanged connections to the recognised standard. These courses are available in our newly opened training and development centre in Bridgend, South Wales. Training courses are also available throughout the UK and globally with our mobile training rig.

Our joint integrity training consists of theory and practical elements which will provide the underpinning knowledge & practical skills required to correctly break containment & re-make bolted flange joints for the process industries and on COMAH sites.

Our bespoke training packages can cover:

• Joint Integrity Management
• Legislation & Industry Guidelines
• Gasket Specification /Handling and Storage
• Correct methodology of inserting gaskets
• External piping system loads
• Thermal shock
• Inspection of flange faces
• Flange alignment
• Torque tightening/tightening methods
• Torque wrenches (correct use, selection and storage)
• Correct bolting sequences

Candidates will learn about the various types of joints, gaskets, fasteners and lubrication as well as the necessary skills required in the use of hand torque loading and sequential tightening techniques. Candidates will also understand the meaning of joint integrity management and the global guidelines and legislation that are required, including identification, inspection and compliance through associated documentation.

Later this year we will be providing ECITB accredited training courses including MJI10 dismantle, assemble and hand torque flanged joints.
