Product Pick of the Week - Boltight launches powerful new range of bolt tensioners for compact flanges

Specialist bolt tensioner manufacturer Boltight Ltd has launched a new range of hydraulic bolt tensioners targeting the compact flanges used extensively in the offshore oil and gas industry

Called the Xtra Load Range, the 1500 bar system delivers 30% more load than Boltight's standard range making it an ideal partner for compact flange bolt tensioning.

In addition, the lightweight and innovative design means the Xtra range can also be used on all common sized ANSI and API flanges, making it a highly versatile tool. These strong and durable bolt tensioners have a large usable piston stroke to ensure fast, precise and uniform operation at all times.

Other stand out features include its low maintenance design; a misalignment compensation device; a maximum stroke indicator and a safe over stroke mechanism. All these features combine to make an easy to use bolt tensioner that is quick and efficient to use by operators faced with difficult conditions in the harsh offshore environment.

Said Boltight Engineering Manager, Dave Metzger: "We are seeing more and more compact flanges being used in the offshore industry. These flanges offer considerable weight and space savings compared to conventional flanges but they demand greater bolt loading in a smaller space envelope. This in turn demands a bolt tensioner design that can impart more power in a smaller tool with compromising on safety, reliability and accuracy. Our innovative Xtra Load Range provides the offshore industry with a high quality bolt tensioner that exceeds this requirement."

A special feature on all Boltight tools is the composite materials used to produce the hydraulic piston seals. These offer easy piston return, exceptional reliability and long-life performance compared to other seal materials. Even after prolonged use the seals remain firm, do not get dislodged and are low maintenance.

Pressure tested and CE marked, the Xtra Load Range is supplied with detailed operating, maintenance and safety manuals. Boltight can supply complementary hoses and pumps as well as interchangeable adapter kits for different bolt sizes. Special one-off tool designs are available on request.
