Bolted connection simulation

I'm trying to simulate a welded flange at a pipe and the flange is bolted to the other with pre tork (140nm). The problem that I'm facing is that the stresses are too high for this pre tork, but the 140nm is the pre load recommended for this size of flange.

 

I uploaded the model with my consideration, any help or comment is welcome !
