The Patriot flange alignment tool will eliminate risks associated with traditional flange alignment practices, along with saving time on labour. This subsea tool can be used to align or re-align flange joints during pipework construction, commissioning or during routine maintenance. Our tools offer safe, simple, solutions for linear or rotational misalignment of fixed flanges. Proper flange alignment is an essential part of ensuring a leak free bolted joint. The flange alignment is used to line up flanges prior to bolting or unbolting. It works by attaching the tool the flange joint, where misalignment is at its greatest, and then simply push and pull the flanges into correct alignment.
