Boltight, the global manufacturer of hydraulic bolt tensioning equipment for the oil & gas, power generation and industrial engineering sectors, is offering its customers a complete tool repair, refurbishment and upgrade service that covers all types of hydraulic bolt tensioners, hydraulic nuts, pumps, hoses and ancillary equipment.
Online PR News – 03-December-2010 – – Boltight, the global manufacturer of hydraulic bolt tensioning equipment for the oil & gas, power generation and industrial engineering sectors, has launched a complete tool repair, refurbishment and upgrade service that covers all types of hydraulic bolt tensioners, hydraulic nuts, pumps, hoses and ancillary equipment.
Demand for a refurbishment service has increased steadily in recent years as businesses worldwide look to extend the lifespan of specialist tools in order to maximise their investment. Boltight's engineers will not only repair existing tools, but they will also upgrade equipment if required to incorporate the latest advanced technology like easy fit composite material seals that ensure easy piston retraction and a longer service life.
All work is carried out in the UK at Boltight's dedicated refurbishment workshop in the West Midlands. Any type or make of bolt tensioning equipment can be refurbished, not just Boltight's own range of tools. Services include replacing piston seals, the recalibration of pump pressure gauges and pressure testing.
Many people are using high-pressure equipment that does not meet the requirements of the European Pressure Equipment Directive. Boltight can upgrade this equipment to ensure it complies with the standard and issue a certificate to demonstrate compliance. Boltight also recommends that all air pumps that come in for refurbishment are fitted with a pressure relief valve to provide an additional safety override feature. The valve is fitted to the high-pressure system.
Said Boltight Director Fred Heaton: “Businesses want to extract maximum value from any investment they make in specialist tools like hydraulic bolt tensioners. This can mean it is more cost-effective to repair and refurbish or upgrade existing tools than replace with new. What is critical is that the tools perform as expected in the field. We advise customers to always check tools before a major project or outage work is undertaken. An annual service is the best insurance against tools failing when they are needed most. Our service, which includes collection and delivery and a fast turnaround, is proving increasingly popular. Customers trust Boltight to supply safe, reliable bolt tensioning equipment, often to tight deadlines."
