Hydraulic Foundation Testing Load Cell
Hydraulic tensioning is the ideal method for tightening bolted connections. Hydraulic tensioning eliminates inaccuracies and helps achieve correct bolt loading in critical connections. At HTI, we’ve been building hydraulic tensioners and nuts since 1986.
HTI provides custom designed single stage or multi-stage tensioners for foundation stud applications. Multi-stage foundation stud tensioners are particularly useful in radially limited applications where a full load and stroke are required. See our Foundation Stud Tensioners page to learn more about foundation stud tensioning.
A hydraulic tensioner load cell can also be used for post-installation foundation stud testing. For applications such as wind turbines, stud testing load cells can be used to ensure that the foundation studs are properly affixed to the foundation and can handle the proper bolt load, before installing the mast.
HTI’s foundation stud testing load cells provide an efficient and accurate way to test foundation studs.
Custom Engineered Tensioners Since 1986
HTI has been designing engineered solutions to your toughest bolt tensioning problems since 1986! You can choose from one of our standard catalog sizes above, or we can design a custom fixed tensioner for any application when a standard model won’t work. HTI tensioners can be designed for imperial or metric-sized studs, high loads, high temperatures, large stud sizes or corrosive environments. Our multi-unit tensioning systems can make easy work of large bolted systems, and our automated tensioning systems can reduce labor and increase throughput in high-volume manufacturing applications.
