Flange Bolt Datasheets
A flange bolt is one of two components that is used to hold the flanges together. They are subjected to a predefined torque which is designed to stretch the bolt out a little bit. The reason for this is that there needs to be a certain amount of force to hold the flanges together when the internal pressure is high. There is a very specific procedure that is used when torquing the bolts.
