One of the most powerful and widely used tool in the industry, hydraulic torque wrenches are used in multiple industries. It is not only the ideal tool to reduce job time but also helps complete bolting jobs in confined spaces.The benefits don’t end there, multiple bolting accessories allow hydraulic torque wrench to be the most customizable tool while delivering the highest rate of accuracy and power in comparison to any other torque wrench. In this article, we will discuss about the key benefits and fundamentals of hydraulic torque wrenches and their accessories like reaction arms and links.

It is natural for torque wrenches to go out of calibration due to consistent usage and time. To ensure torque accuracy, tools should be calibrated regularly. Calibrating torque wrenches and pressure gauges of hydraulic power packs not only boosts the efficiency of the tool but also ensures tool safety. In this article, we will be addressing the importance of calibration and the time frame.
What does calibration do?
Calibration ensures that the torque wrenches apply the right torque output to fasten a bolt accurately. Similarly, pressure gauges of power packs require calibration to ensure it is delivering the right pressure to the torque wrenches as reflected in the gauge.

Workplace accidents not only lead to devastating injuries to workers but also costly fines, shutdown, and equipment damage impacting the finances and productivity of the plant. In this article, we will provide a checklist to ensure safe bolting services are practiced everywhere.
First things first, every employee handling torque wrenches should be trained to operate the tool safely. Hydraulic torque wrenches being one of the most injury-prone tools needs to be handled appropriately to avoid broken hands or fingers. An untrained operator can damage his eyes and exposed parts of the skin from the toxic oil of the hydraulic torque wrenches.

Many industries like infrastructure, construction, shipping, oil and gas require lifting equipment during maintenance and installation jobs. Such heavy equipment require immense power to be lifted which can only delivered by hydraulic tools. In comparison to a normal jack that can commonly be seen used in automobile garages and vehicles, a hydraulic jack is powered by oil (hydraulics) that lifts heavy equipment with minimal labor effort. In this article, we will define the hydraulic jack, with the working, and the role it plays in industries.

As flanges carry or transfer both flammable and non-flammable liquids and gases for major industries like oil and gas, petrochemicals, subsea, ports, etc. they always need to be checked for leakages and must maintain joint-integrity.To ensure safety, after every bolting and machining job during maintenance, the flange is pressure tested at high pressures to ensure the accuracy of the job. In this article, we will provide a step by step guide on what factors need to be considered to ensure accurate bolting with torque tools on flanges.

controlled bolting in infrastructure

Unlike other industries like mining, heavy machinery, oil and gas, etc. where bolting services are crucial for every maintenance shutdowns, the infrastructure industry usually requires accurate controlled bolting services only one-time. However, it is important to get it right the first time as it can lead to a weak structure. In this article, we will highlight the factors to be considered while bolting, choosing the right torque wrench and how to achieve load accuracy.

Bolt Tensioner design

A bolt tensioner is an annular jack that fits over the fastener to be tightened. Followed by the definition and components mentioned in the previous article on components involved in bolt tensioners, we will provide you an insight into the design of the tool that will also explain how do bolt tensioners operate. We will also be talking about applied and residual load. We highly recommend you to read information about the components from our previous article to understand the operation better.

As mentioned in our previous article, torque wrenches apply the desired torque on a fastener to either loosen or tighten it. However, there are a lot of factors involved that reduce the life of these torque tools. Based on our two decades of experience in the industry, we have compiled a list of common problems that cause the tool to fail or breakdown. To slow down the deterioration, we will share some preventive measures that can reduce maintenance costs.
