No. 20. Insulting Flange Joints!

This is a cracker, as you can see we have a copper nickel flange connected to a stainless steel flange using copper nickel fasteners with CARBON steel washers under the nuts. So of course the carbon steel washer will essentially disappear the studs will be loose and the flange will leak like a Clinton e-mail server.
