Valve World article: Primary flange forces

The new article written for Valve World will be released in March issue and can be found by clicking here [PDF] or visiting our web site in Publications section. Randy Wacker took a somewhat global perspective on the subject of flange forces, and the role they play in creating and maintaining the successful sealing of bolted flange connections (BFC). The first article in a two-part series reveals how gasket stress is typically distributed between mating flanges, and identifies some of the most common flange forces to be considered in deriving a suitable bolt load for the connection.
