Subsea and topside bolt tensioning tools

Paul Boughton
Tentec, a specialist engineering company and market leader in design and manufacture of topside and subsea bolt tensioning tools and systems, is launching the Optimus 7 series range of subsea tensioning tools.

Designed for use on not only ANSI B16.5, ANSI B16.47, API 6A, API 17D, MSS-SP44 pipe line flanges but also for use on the demanding bolt load requirements of the Compact Flanges from Vector SPO.

The company’s Bolt Tightening Software package walks the operator through the complete tightening process from start to finish. Correct, best practice, tightening sequences are given along with the tensioner pressures required to tighten a bolted joint in the most efficient time possible.

Other new products on show include the Optimus Flange Pulling System, hydraulic torque wrenches and a specially designed Blind Flange Cap as used on a specialised water injection system project in the North Sea. The Clamp assembly demonstrate Tentec’s all round engineering capabilities and expertise in finding the right bolting solutions that makes them the first choice for offshore services companies throughout the world.
