MTI Hosts Training on Improving Reliability of BFJAs

Fifty people participated in a special training session on Bolted Flanged Joint Assemblies (BFJAs) at MTI’s AmeriTAC 127 Meeting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on October 15. Hardin Wells, Fellow  - Mechanical Tech Service and Jonathan Meyer, Mechanical Engineer - Mechanical Tech Service, both from MTI member company Albemarle Corporation, led the half-day session. 

According to Wells, BFJAs are one of the more under-appreciated pressure retaining components in the Chemical and Petrochemical Process Industries, similar, in some regards, to the way utility systems are often ignored or overlooked.
