West Bromwich, West Midlands, United Kingdom, 2011/03/01 - The new series of Torque wrenches from Birmingham-based Tentec has been successfully used by MOSS, Mechanical On Site Services, on a maintenance project for gas utility company, Centrica.
Launched in the summer of 2010, Tentec’s new hydraulic torque wrenches have been put to the test in a wide range of bolt tightening applications throughout industries as diverse as wind energy, petrochem, utilities and general engineering. Without exception, every tool passed with flying colours and they are now in daily use throughout the world.
MOSS (Mechanical On Site Services), a leading UK provider of machining and hydraulic bolt tightening services, chose the versatile CD Series of torque wrenches and have recently carried out a successful maintenance project for the gas utility company, Centrica. Darryl Dixon, Managing Director at MOSS said that their engineers were delighted with the performance of the new tools. “Having a proven track record of providing first class service and engineering expertise, it is a major decision for us to switch to new tools and equipment. Many of our projects are safety critical and we have to be sure all the equipment gives optimum performance at all times, especially in harsh environments. The new Tentec torque wrenches demonstrated exceptional performance and their unique slim design meant that our engineers were able to reach awkward, restricted bolts.”
Built by engineers, for engineers, this range of torque wrenches offers versatility, reliability and speed of use. Each wrench in the series can not only be fitted with a range of cassettes to suit differing hexagon nut sizes, but each cassette is attached to the cylinder by a single, high-strength locking pin. This means that no special tools are required and the changeover for different nut sizes is quick and easy. A considerable advantage when time is money.
Tentec (tentec.net) offer purpose designed Air Driven and Electric Driven torque pumps to ensure optimum performance of the CD torque wrenches. Other optional extras include a rugged and ergonomically designed handle and a PE/PA Quad Kit that allows up to four CD wrenches to be linked together.
