Your Challenges

Assuring the integrity of bolted joints is a major concern, particularly when they can involve the release of hazardous and harmful inventories to atmosphere.

Avoidance of leaks is a top priority for operators, as they can lead to delayed production, unplanned shutdowns, and process safety incidents. When leaks do occur, they can often be very costly for all stakeholders.

How We Support Your Business

CR3 provides safe, effective and efficient bolting, flange management and onsite machining solutions to prevent leaks in flanged assemblies. Our Joint Integrity Management teams inspect, maintain and record all bolted joints to assure you they are appropriately designed, specified, and tightened in accordance with ASME PCC-1 standards to ensure zero leaks.

Bolt Torqueing:

CR3 can support you with experienced field service engineers and specialist torqueing equipment for your bolt torqueing requirements. We offer a comprehensive range of torqueing services, providing the required accuracy and consistency necessary for safe, reliable and leak-free bolted-joint assemblies.

Bolt Tensioning:

Increasingly, hydraulic bolt tensioning is used to apply accurate bolt loading in a controlled and safe manner. Bolt tensioning offers the ability to tension or de-tension all studs simultaneously.

Flange Management:

We have specialist software for computing bolt loads and tooling pressures on a wide range of flanged joints and clamped connections with full traceability. The bolt load values are verified independently to achieve leak-free joints – first time, every time.

Onsite Machining:

We have a vast array of portable machines ideal for turning, drilling, milling and grinding and can offer all these services at your site, significantly reducing downtime and cost.
