Flange Mechanic Skills

The students are trained in the technical skills of working with flange connections. Through advanced diametrically close they learn to achieve a proper and evenly distributed pressure on the gasket to as "source" leakage, too diffuse leakage and other damage to property, avoid people and environment. Through the establishment of a flange label / protocol can be measured, inter alia, with respect to deviations from the ideal position, and recorded.
This course is designed for all employees who flange connections (of)mount. Optioneel is om deze 2 daagse opleiding te combineren met het examen WFPr.

Module plastic flange connection

The plastic flange connections module treats it in theory and practice (of)mounting flange connections in a plastic pipe system. The much smaller tightening torques that apply to plastic flanges require more background knowledge about the high-quality closing of a flange connection and a different approach in practice. This module is integrated in the Flange Mechanic Professional Technique course (only for groups).
