Heavy Duty Fastening Applications with Pneumatic Torque Multipliers

Historical approaches to working with heavy-duty threaded fasteners have aimed at sheer torque power, using long lever arms and heavy hammers on slugging wrenches. More recently, the hydraulic wrench has been viewed as the solution to many problems that require serious torque. But hydraulic wrenches are notorious for their heavy ratchets, bulky compressors and laborious…

Deep Down in Coal Mine, Torque Multipliers are Selected for Maintenance Applications

Deep down in a coal mine, the foreman faced lengthy and costly dilemmas for two key maintenance applications. The first maintenance application was for removing and re-tightening the bolts during the servicing process for “Mining Heads” used on the industrial machines attached to the vehicles underground. The “Mining Heads” are used to channel through rock…

Pneumatic Torque Multiplier Provides Torque Control for Manufacturing Large Gas Engines

A manufacturer of large industrial gas engines had a torque application for fastening an industrial engine block in a washing chamber after the milling process. The large gas engines are designed and built for demanding applications in waste water treatment plants, power plants, oil & gas fields and other energy applications all over the world.…

EFW Electric Torque Multiplier

Precision Tightening & Loosening of Heavy Duty Fastening Applications

From tightening large industrial bolts used in windmill gearbox assemblies to bolting maintenance applications for oil & gas pipelines and rigs, the Mountz electric torque multipliers achieve precision torque in a quick, cost-efficient manner. The electric torque multiplier shuts-off when pre-set torque is achieved. It’s a non-impacting and operates at a smooth, continuous rotation; the…

Methods for Checking/Auditing Pipe Flanges, Pressurized Connections and Other Critical Fastened Joints

Improper torque of high-pressure vessels can be attributed to safety incidents that cause financial loss, loss of property and even loss of life. The more volatile and dangerous the substance the more critical it is to take precautions to ensure flanges and bolts have been properly torqued and most importantly, properly audited. The Clean Air…
