8. Bolt torques
The bolts of flange joints shall be tightened using the prescribed bolt torques, which are given in tables 1 and 2.
These torque values are applicable for ASA 150, ASA 300 and PN 10 to PN 63 drilling patterns in combination with the
recommended sealing material as specified in chapter 4.

Bolt torques for other drilling patterns (API/JIS/ASA 600/etc) or for gaskets, other than recommended by FPI, including
special gaskets on valves, pumps, etc, might differ from the values given in tables 1 and 2. Recommended bolt torque
values for these applications shall be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the FPI Technical Support team.
