Few Advantages of Hydraulic Tensioners
There are number of applications where hydraulic force offers many advantages. For instance, if you hold any bolt or a stud, can you imagine that this this can ever work like a spring? In case, bolted joints are clasped, it almost works like spring. In order to do that you need to stretch the assembly with sufficient force so that the joint remains clamped together firmly when it is used for the job. In case, the pressure applied on stud is either too low or high then the joint may fail. Also, if the joint is not uniform for different studs, the same thing may happen.
Therefore, in such case, you will find that by using hydraulic tensioners along with bolt tensioning systems and hydraulic stud, you do not face such issues any more. By using hydraulic force, the tightening method will be changed and all your improper tightening of stud problem will be resolved, so that you can save your time on rework. Therefore, prefer to use hydraulic based tensioner for different applications.
Following are few advantages of changing into hydraulic tensioner and hydraulic stud.
Stud loading is accurate and repeatable
These hydraulic based tensioners and studs works on very simple theory. This kind of hydraulic stud tensioner consists of a very special kind of hydraulic cylinder. The amount of tension or force that is applied on the stud is directly proportional to the area of hydraulic cylinder and the amount of hydraulic pressure that has been offered by the pump. As all these parameters are closely controlled, the tensioning resulted is quite accurate as required.
Uniform stud loading
In certain applications where gaskets are used the loading of each and every stud has to be done in proper manner. By using a number of hydraulic stud tensioners, you can get better results where you have to deal with multiple number of studs. Such kind of tensioners are interconnected with each other along with the pump as well. The tension on each of the stud remains almost the same as you increase the hydraulic pressure and also the flange comes at the same time together and in even manner.
Saving of both time and labor
If you use number of hydraulic stud tensioner then you can save time as they are working together. As compared to hydraulic torque wrenches these tensioners are much faster and thus it can help you to save lots of unnecessary labor time.
In addition to that it is much easier to handle and the operations are pretty safe. The stud life also gets increased.
