Flange fitter qualification courseFlanged joints are used to connect fittings, pipes and tubes and are used in a wide variety of industries, such as oil refineries, power generation, the chemical industry and the food industry. The assembly or disassembly of flanged connections, the use of appropriate bolts and the use of gaskets require expert knowledge and appropriately qualified personnel. The quality of the flanged connections must be ensured to ensure the long-lasting operation of the tanks and pipelines.
