Using multiple bolt tensioning tools on a bolted joint gives a much improved uniform bolt load across all bolts.
Axial Bolt Load:
Bolt load is applied axially to the bolt. Inconsistencies such as friction, bending and lubricant are not a factor when using bolt tensioners. No torsional stresses are involved.
Multiple bolt tensioners offer a rapid and accurate method of tightening a bolt.
Conversion kits are available to convert a tensioner from one bolt size to another offering an economical and versatile solution.
Bolt load is directly proportional to the pressure applied to the tensioner.
Tensioners are mostly used with standard fasteners, no special or proprietary bolting components are required.
Using the Tentec BTS-Bolt Tightening Software takes away the complexity of calculating tensioner pressures and torque values.
