ASME Establishes New Bolting Qualification Program
Feb 10, 2016
ASME has developed a new program to qualify bolters working with bolted flange joints. This program is designed to train and evaluate a bolter’s ability to inspect, assemble, disassemble and tighten bolted joints in an effective and safe manner. Through online courses and hands-on training, successful candidates will understand and demonstrate the principles and practices of bolted joint assembly as outlined in Appendix A of ASME PCC-1: Guidelines for Pressure Boundary Bolted Flange Joint Assembly.
