All to often when performing maintenance on medium to large size flanges, misalignment has been corrected using chain-falls, come-alongs, pulleys, alignment pins, along with other types of rigging equipment. All to often these methods are complex, labor intensive, risky, hard to plan for and execute.
Attempting to line up flanges without using the proper tools is hazardous and time consuming.
