Question: What torque specification is required to ensure that CF flanges are leak tight?

Answer:

A torque specification is not required to ensure CF flanges are leak tight. If the flanges are tightened such that the opposing flanges contact each other (metal to metal) a leak tight seal will be made unless there is something wrong with the copper gasket or the knife edge of one of the flanges is damaged.
