10/12/2010

Bolt tightening specialist, Tentec, now have its complete range of bolt-tensioning equipment equipped with a unique, full load, positive stop feature. The critical safety feature significantly reduces the possibility of overstroke.

Online PR News – 12-October-2010 – – Tentec is pleased to announce that its complete series of bolt tensioning equipment for wind turbines is now available with a unique, full load, positive stop feature. The new elliptical tool, designed for foundation tooling where there are space restrictions and accessibility problems, is the latest product to be launched with this important safety feature.

Overstroke protection is one of the most important factors to consider when assessing bolt tensioning tools. Without this feature, end users are likely to overstroke the tensioning tool and this can result in the failure of seals and other parts. More importantly, any failure could create a critical safety hazard. Once this occurs, the result is costly downtime while the tool is repaired. This could be crucial for completing a profitable job, on time and within budget.

Tentec’s in-house engineers have designed this unique full load, positive mechanical stop feature so that when to tool is stroked just fractions of an inch over the maximum extension, the tensioner ram will hit a mechanical stop and bolt stretching will safely cease, without any tool damage. Tentec believes it is currently the only company in the world who offers this innovative feature.
