Guidelines for Pressure Boundary Bolted Flange Joint Assembly

Published by: ASME International / 11/12/2013 / 112 pages
The bolted flange joint assembly (BFJA) guidelines
described in this document apply principally to pressure-
boundary flanged joints with ring-type gaskets that
are entirely within the circle enclosed by the bolt holes
and with no contact outside this circle.1 These guidelines
may be selectively applied to other joint geometries. By
selection of those features suitable to the specific service
or need, these guidelines may be used to develop effective
joint assembly procedures for the broad range of
sizes and service conditions normally encountered in
industry.
