Bolt Tensioning

KBSS Engineering provide a wide range of innovative, high quality specialised equipment and we provide a comprehensive range of bolt tensioners for optimum solutions to the industries bolt tensioning requirements.

Bolt Tensioning is the process of stretching the bolt by applying an axial load directly onto the bolt and is essential to accurate bolt loading in a controlled and safe manner. These systems prevent joint failure and leaks, which can result in downtime and safety hazards.

Spring Tensioners

Tightening with bolt tensioners offers significant advantages over traditional tightening methods which include:

  • Ease and speed of operation
  • No torsional loading of fasteners
  • No damage to assembly due to direct loading
  • High accuracy
  • Can be automated
  • Can be used for critical applications

Bolt tensioners are suited to subsea and topside applications and our innovative products have increased efficiency, safety and speed across the energy industry.
