How to use bolt tensioners

Hi-Force hydraulic bolt tensioners are designed to directly stretch the bolt by applying a known load to the fastener using a hydraulic cylinder and threaded puller. The securing nut is then rotated using a short tommy bar, whilst the thread is being stretched, until it is firmly tightened against the joint face. Immediately the hydraulic pressure (load) is released the bolt tension (residual load) is retained, within the clamp length of the bolt, because it is prevented from returning to its original length by the tightened nut.

Hi-Force hydraulic bolt tensioners offer the quickest, safest and most accurate means of applying a specific residual load to bolts. Bolt tensioners can be used to easily achieve an accurate and pre-determined bolt loading in a single, simultaneous operation, providing the uniform gasket compression, essential for the integrity of critical bolted connections. Ideally all bolts in the joint should be tensioned simultaneously i.e. 100%, however 50%, 33% or even 25% simultaneous tensioning can be carried out, which then requires the operator to make two, three or four tensioning operations by moving around the bolts in diametrically opposed fashion. Whilst partial tensioning will take longer to complete the task, it enables the user to optimize between the cost of the equipment and the available time.

Hi-Force has considerable experience in providing precise calculations of the correct bolt load to be applied to ensure an accurate residual load is imparted into the bolts, whether they be tightened using a 100%, 50%, 33% or 25% simultaneous tensioning procedure.
