iPad app for bolt loads launches

Paul Boughton

Calculating torque and bolt loads for a range of bolted joints has now become easier with the launch of Hydratight's BoltUp app for the iPad.

Following the launch of its Joint Integrity Portal in 2013, Hydratight, the global joint integrity specialist, has launched a new app dedicated to joint integrity to complement its suite of bolt load calculation software. The app will act as an accessible tool for basic bolt load calculations on standard ANSI flanges and is recommended as an add-on for those using Hydratight’s existing bolt load software.

Free to download for iOS devices via the Apple app store, Bolt-Up, also available atwww.joint-integrity.com, is an entry-level version of Hydratight's Informate software suite.

Commenting on the launch of this new app, Joe Gill, joint integrity manager at Hydratight, said, “We created this app with the customer in mind, understanding the ever-growing need for mobile applications. The BoltUp app was the next logical step to help customers access the software at any time, from anywhere.”
