What Is Flange Integrity Management?

Flange Integrity Management (FIM) is a methodology to ensure the integrity of flanged connections, minimizing and usually eliminating, integrity-related issues (such as leaks) at start-up or re-start. Moreover, FIM is related to a database with a complete history of every flange on a process plant. Registers, work packs, test packs, certificates, and drawing mark-ups are all created and modified in one system,  giving increased efficiency and accuracy. FIM is a system that assures HSE performance and helps manage risks
