Bolts and studs monitor load

Dec 22, 2011 | Fasteners & adhesives

A visual or digital readout option built into the head of Accu-Load’s new range of bolts and studs means they can monitor and indicate their load during tightening and in use. Each bolt is machined and calibrated to suit the diameter, material and bolt design. They can be used indefinitely and can be supplied with a range of hand held mechanical or digital readout systems for remote monitoring.

According to the company, the technology is used where vibration, thermal shock, and even and accurate tensioning is required on complex flange arrangements and critical environments on processing plants. Applications so far have ranged from oil platform legs to mining equipment, compressors and wind farms.
