Hydratight launches lunch and learn scheme for customers

15 January 2018

Joint integrity specialist Hydratight is offering the chance to book a free lunch and learn to hear about the company’s hot bolting services in 2018.

The events, which can be held globally at customers’ facilities or at Hydratight training locations, will give participants the chance to learn about hot bolting best practices from one of the company’s seasoned professionals.

Hydratight’s hot bolting clamps are designed to maintain gasket stress while replacing bolts. In combination with the DNV GL approved clamps, the company has a robust risk assessment process and a 100% leak-free track record on projects globally.

The sessions will be a chance to gain greater understanding of when hot bolting is required and the step by step process implemented by Hydratight.

Luca Ghiotto, global product manager of specialty services at Hydratight, said: “These lunch and learns are a great way for our customers to learn about the range of services we offer, which can greatly enhance their current business operations.

“Our patented MorSafe™ system is designed to be simple but safe – the philosophy behind the design is to minimize the possibility of disturbing the gasket. Lightweight and compact designs can fit almost all flange space restrictions, and enable efficient bolt replacement.”

Hot bolting is the process of removing and replacing bolts on live piping, flanges and equipment. This allows the company to carry out necessary maintenance work to maximise the durability and lifespan of a pipe connection while avoiding downtime entirely on the offshore asset. The clamps do not require any pneumatics or hydraulics for engagement with the flange.
