Stud tensioning jobs are often long and exhausting processes that eat up valuable man hours and tie up equipment. At best, 50 percent of the studs are tensioned at one time with conventional stud tensioners. It’s time to ask yourself, is there a better way?
ZipTENSIONER Double Zip Stud Tensioners are the solution. They cut job time by more than half compared to other standard tensioners. The one-piece design provides 100-percent project coverage andallows for simultaneous tensioning on multiple fasteners. In addition, it evenly loads all fasteners in the joint and eliminates elastic interactions (commonly referred to as cross talk) while providing a compact, light and low-profile design.
In the case of conventional stud tensioners, they are assembled on the bolts and puller nuts are threaded onto fasteners that are often in very bad condition with rusted or damaged threads. The FASTORQ stud tensioner works by using spring-loaded thread segments that allow the tensioner to slide over the protruding stud threads, which eliminates the time-consuming task of threading the puller nut. Rusted or damaged threads are also less of an issue with the FASTORQ Stud Tensioner since threading the puller nuts is bypassed.
Designed for subsea, nuclear and wind turbine industries, the ZipTENSIONER Double Zip StudTensioner is customizable and a great option for other industries in need of improved stud-tensioning speed, such as offshore, petrochemical, steel and mining.
The ZipTENSIONER Double Zip Stud Tensioner performs at optimum levels when used with the FASTORQ HTP2000 Power Unit. However, it provides significant reduction in tensioning time when used with non-FASTORQ power units as well.
All parts are durable, provide corrosion protection and come with FASTORQ’s Total Assurance Guarantee and 3-Year Warranty.
