Flange Leakage is a serious concern during operation as it may cause to serious hazards. So, day by day, designing each piping component following operational integrity is becoming more and more difficult. Now checking flanges for leakage problems is common while pipe stress analysis. Every organization has some criteria on which flanges to be checked during the design stage.
Already various types of flange leakage checking methods are available in Caesar II as listed below. Click on the individual subject to access those:
- Flange Leakage Basics
- Flange Leakage using the Pressure-Equivalent method
- Flange Leakage checking using ASME Sec VIII Method
- Flange Leakage checking using NC-3658.3 method.
Flange Leakage using the EN-1591 method
But from the Caesar II-2019 version onwards, the Hexagon team has incorporated an additional flange leakage checking method, by using the EN-1591 method.
Designing flanges with respect to the EN-1591 flange standard has economic benefits. Hence, these flanges have become popular and well-known. Hexagon PPM conducted a webinar in September 2019 to help Caesar II users learn the basics behind this sophisticated flange analysis method that has been implemented in CAESAR II 2019. As always, The analysis method possesses user-friendly features that automate the detailed input required for this standard.
Objectives of the Webinar
Through this recorded webinar the Hexagon caesar II Experts will briefly explain the following:
- The major benefits that users will find compared to the Taylor Forge Method.
- EN-1591 Implementation Steps in Caesar II-2019
- Steps for Designing and Analyzing Standard and non-Standard flange assemblies
- Considering External force and moments and thermal expansion while leakage analysis
- Steps to determine flange rotation, deflection and
- Steps Bolting torque calculation
