Development of flange joint locators successfully solve problems like long period of flange joint, difficulties of work and potential accidents that take place when checking up and maintaining the devices. Application of this achievement can not only reduce time spent on flange
joint operation, but also increase security degree of this operation. In previous work, people use tools like crow bars during the operation. However, this may lead to slip. Flange joint locators can eliminate these potential safe hazard and ensure great safety as well as adequate time for maintaining and transformation of devices in gas fields. This achievement has promising popularization and application prospect.
