Boltight to launch game changing TSR+ tensioners at SPE Offshore Europe 15 August 2019

For almost 2 decades Boltight has been a pioneering force in hydraulic bolt tensioning. The company will be using the SPE Offshore Europe Exhibition in Aberdeen on 3rd - 6th September to launch its TSR+, a new and innovative auto return tensioner that promises to shake up the offshore oil and gas sector.

The event, an annual fixture in most E&P calendars, will give a platform to technical experts from over 900 suppliers, allowing them to share innovative ideas and new technologies with over 36,000 attendees. Situated on stand 3J71, Boltight will use the exhibition as an official launchpad for TSR+, and attendees will learn the many benefits of TSR+, including its complete compatibility with current TSR tooling. The TSR+ also boasts an auto retraction time that is four times faster than its nearest competitor on the market, making it both a convenient and essential upgrade to existing equipment.

Aside from speed and compatibility, there are several other features that set TSR+ apart from other tensioners. Its durability has been tested to over 10,000 full pressure / full stroke cycles giving the TSR+ unparalleled longevity. Long life seals have demonstrated great performance also lasting 10,000 cycles on specific tool sizes. To top it off, the TSR+ load cells have Boltight’s trademark surface finish, providing reassuring protection against the harshest elements. These are just some of the reasons why many anticipate a high demand for TSR+ tensioners in offshore industries such as oil and gas.

"Offshore Europe is one of the prime events in our UK calendar and we’re delighted to be launching the all new TSR+ here. We’ve completed a lot of development work to optimise the design, and can now say with confidence this is the fastest auto retract tensioner on the market. We expect to see a lot of interest from customers in the oil and gas sector who are seeking ways reduce their bolt tightening times benefitting from the latest equipment," said Richard Outram, business development director at Boltight.

The SPE Offshore Europe exhibition will take place at P&J Live in Bucksburn, Aberdeen from 3rd - 6th September. Tickets for the event are still available, including free visitor badges for those interested in what the exhibition has to offer.
