Hydraulic Bolt Tensioner

A hydraulic device used to stretch flange bolts to ensure a proper preload is achieved. Manual torqueing is replaced by using hydraulics. Hydraulic tensioning allows the simultaneous tightening of multiple bolts via a high-pressure hose assembly to a single pump unit, which ensures uniform clamping forces across the joint.
