When refitting the bolts into a flange on a steam line, the bolts should be prepared. Coat the threads with a graphite-based grease. They can be easily removed next time when maintenance is required.

The same procedure should be followed when assembling flanges of boiler or engine exhast trank or manifold flanges.
