Specifications and Procedures

Contract bolting jobs begin with an on-site analysis of the work to be done. Then, in consultation with the customer, ATLANTIC BLUEWATER personnel develop and document procedures for installation of bolts and/or removal of bolts. Each bolted joint is assessed as a system. Bolt size and material are considered in addition to gasket type, pressure and temperature of the process, and operating conditions. Finally, the work is executed following the procedure to obtain optimum results.
