Tentec and National Tools Exhibit Bolt Tensioning Equipment at AOG 2013
Tentec, designers, manufacturers and suppliers of bolt tightening equipment will be exhibiting in Perth, Australia in February at Australian Oil & Gas 2013.
The highlight of Tentec’s products will be the new Compact-8 series of subsea tensioning tools comprising just 8 tensioning tools to cover bolt sizes from ¾” to 4” and are suitable for use on the majority of standard pipe flanges. They can be used on many specifications of pipeline flanges including the newer SPO/Vector Compact Flanges, In addition to the conventional ANSI B16.5, ANSI B16.47-Series A, API-6A and API-17D flanges.
The COMPACT-8 series also incorporates many of the features and benefits of Tentec’s previous subsea tensioners that have been used safely and reliably by divers around the world since 1991. The new COMPACT-8 tensioners have also been integrated into Tentec’s BTS (Bolt Tightening Software). The software saves engineers both time and money by allowing documentation for multiple bolted joint projects to be created quickly and efficiently and has the additional advantage that engineers can avoid the possibility of error that often occur with manual torque and tension calculations. BTS Software along with the Compact-8 range of subsea tensioners is the perfect subsea bolt tensioning solution package.
Also on display will be one-off examples of Tentec’s all round engineering capabilities. This will include a specialist bolt tensioning solution that was developed for use by both divers and remotely by an ROV. The Tentec tool, therefore, had to withstand the harsh subsea environment and subsequent high operating pressures, as well as being versatile enough to be used both manually and remotely.
