Bolt tensioning company TensionPro has furthered its product range by launching a Delta series of hydraulic bolt tensioners, specially designed for topside applications in the offshore oil and gas industry.
The 1,500 bar system delivers 30% more load than TensionPro's standard range, making it ideal for tightening compact flanges, as well as all common sized ANSI, ASME and API flanges. Lightweight and versatile, the tools feature a compact direct threaded tensioner load cell, as well as an integrated bridge and socket. This durable one-piece construction makes them easy to handle and avoids the possibility of dropping separate components. The bridge design and optional swivel connections overcome problems where the application has a tight vertical clearance. Other features include the latest seal technology, a low maintenance design, a maximum stroke indicator and over-stroke protection.
"Compact flanges are being used more extensively in the offshore industry because they offer considerable weight and space savings compared to conventional flanges. However, these flanges demand greater loads from smaller bolts within a smaller space envelope. This in turn demands a bolt tensioner design that can impart more force from a smaller tool without compromising on safety, reliability and accuracy. Our innovative Delta series provides the industry with a high-quality bolt tensioner that exceeds these requirements," comments Richard Outram, sales director at TensionPro.
Delta series tensioners are available with a single, twin, or swivel connections depending on the application and customer operating preferences.
