service Bolting & Heat Exchanger

Our goal: 100% joint integrity assurance

Bolt handling is one of our core technical competencies and we pride ourselves in providing unrivalled quality of service in this discipline. We provide accurate and high-quality bolt handling services for bolts up to 3.5” and count the largest bolting team in Belgium with 35 specialists.

Bolt handling

We start by in-house load calculation and assessment of proper bolt handling technique in order to assure leak-free flange tightening. We use state-of-the art torque tools up to 35,000NM and tension tools up to 3.5” to tighten each bolt in a safe, controlled and sequential manner. 

During operations we always apply a rigorous quality assurance/quality control procedure ensuring a leak-free solution right from the first time for all your bolted flange joints. We provide a full traceability on your bolted flange joints due to our in-house methodology.

Due to our extensive track record and knowledge we are frequently asked to implement a flange management procedure at our customers’ production sites in order to assure joint integrity. Our competent staff are trained according to the Global industry standard EN1591-4.  

We have the largest bolting team in Belgium.
