Hydraulic bolt tensioners and bolting operations




Oil & Gas

FPT – Fluid Power Technology is involved in large projects in North Africa to supply bolt tightening solution on construction projects. The high level of expertise and production capabilities allowed us to supply our range of Hydraulic bolt tensioners for:

– Oil and Gas processing plants
– Separation Units
– Power Generation Plants
– Pumping stations
– Desalination Units
– Chemical processing plants
– Fertilizer plants
– Cement industries
– Iron and steel plants

For an important project in Tunisia FPT has supplied his entire line of standard Hydraulic bolt tensioners – TTS series are used for tightening the flanges of the pipeline of the processing plant.

FPT has designed and manufactured all the necessary equipment to perform tightening operations: electric pump – 1.500 bar, hydraulic bolt tensioners TTS series, hoses and fittings in very high pressure. The TTS series of hydraulic tensioners is designed to adapt to the main types of flanges: ANSI B16.5 – ANSI B16.47 – BS3293 – AWWA – MSS-SP44 – API-6A – API-17D – UNI EN 1092-1 and Norsok flanges , Vector, Slip on, Weld Neck and many others. The TTS series of hydraulic tensioners has the optimal combination of developed strength and dimensions, with a reduced weight. To complete the supply FPT has also organized a Training for the assembly teams who will take care of the tightening of flanged joints and pipeline testing.

The most efficient use of bolt tensioning tools is where every bolt (100% bolt to tensioner ratio) is tensioned simultaneously. Tensioners can be fitted to either one side or both sides of the bolted joint depending on accessibility. Other examples of system configuration are 50%, 33% and 25% bolt to tensioner ratio. In this specific job the configuration used where 50% and 25%. Download the product data sheet
