West Bromwich, West Midlands, United Kingdom, 2015/02/24 - Bolt tightening experts Tentec is launching an exciting new range of spring return topside bolt tensioning tools at AOG 2015.
Tentec, a world-leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of bolt tightening equipment for the oil and gas industry will be launching its brand new range of topside bolt tensioning tools at AOG 2015 in Perth, Australia 11-20th March. Visitors will be able to view Tentec’s Force10 tools on the stand of its Australian distributor National Tools Booth M1.
The Force10 range of topside bolt tensioning tools from Tentec consist of 10 base tools covering bolt sizes from 3/4” to 4” (M20 to M100) and has been designed to fit on to most ANSI B16.5, ANSI B16.47 Series 1, MSS-SP44, API-6A and API-17D standard flanges. Many new features and user requested enhancements have been built into this innovative range that now provides extra bolt capacity without compromising on tool size or ease of use. The 10 tool range offers multiple tool variations per bolt size, only 5 tools are required to suit bolt sizes from 3/4” to 4” (M20 to M100).
One of the major new features incorporated into this innovative new range of tensioners is the provision of spring return rams. Force10 tensioners from models F10-04 to F10-10 feature heavy duty integrated springs that assist in resetting the tensioners in between pressure cycles. This greatly speeds up the bolt tensioning operation and reduces the physical effort needed by the user.
Examples of the tools and full technical literature will be available on the stand. Tentec’s Sales Director, Roy Sheldon, will be attending the show to provide visitors with in-depth information on the products and will be on-hand to discuss the correct instrumentation for specific applications.
To make life easier for all users of the Force10 tensioners, Tentec’s popular Bolt Tightening Software (BTS) has been updated to include this new range of tensioners. Using BTS takes away the complexity of calculating tensioner pressures and torque values, making it quick and easy to generate bolting documents.
The new Force10 range complements Tentec’s existing ranges of bolt tensioners that includes the recently introduced V-Series of Compact Flange bolt tensioners designed specifically for use on Vector International SPO Compact flanges and the Norsok L-005 compact flanges and the Compact-8 series of subsea bolt tensioners for use on subsea Vector/SPO compact flanges. Examples of all these ranges will be on show on the Stand.
