Posted by NAW Staff on July 07, 2009 No Comments

Specialist bolt tensioner manufacturer Boltight Ltd. has designed a new range of hydraulic bolt tensioners called Tempest specifically for wind turbine base and foundation bolts.

The new range is suitable for all the common thread forms, such as Williams, Standard Metric, Standard Imperial, Macalloy and Dyson. The tools also meet the technical requirements of the most common wind turbine towers.

Designed for tough use in difficult conditions, the Tempest tensioners provide a quick and reliable solution for tightening the critical foundation joints on modern wind turbines. The tool is simple to use, with its easy fit bridge that ensures any job can be completed in minimum time, according to the company.

The Tempest's modular and versatile design features a spring piston return and an extra durable gearbox for fast nut run-down. It has a built-in over-stroke prevention device and a maximum stroke indicator. Optimized for size, weight and load capacity, the Tempest offers single or twin connections.

The Tempest is CE marked and is supplied with a comprehensive 100-page health and safety, operating and maintenance manual at no extra cost.
