Tensioner Overstroke Indicator and Stop
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 tensioners come with an overstroke indicator and overstroke protection.
Overstroke protection means that you will be prevented from extending the stroke past the safe level.
The overstroke indicator provides a visual indication when you have reached the stroke limit.
If the hydraulic gauge pressure is not yet at the level to provide the proper tension, then another tensioning cycle will be required. You accomplish this by tightening the nut on the stud, releasing the system pressure, screwing the reaction nut or load cell farther down on the stud, and re-tensioning.
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.
