This guide provides details of our range of RotaBolt bolt tension monitoring products, which have been ensuring bolted joint integrity for our customers for more than 30 years.
This guide provides a background to the science of achieving and maintaining correct and accurate bolt tension to ensure leak-free startups and ongoing bolted joint integrity.
Bolted joint reliability is an established science but the vast majority of bolted joints are tightened in an uncontrolled manner; the bolt tension achieved at the end of the tightening cycle is unmeasured and unknown.
To guarantee that all bolts are installed to the correct design tension requires a different measuring principle - the principle at the heart of RotaBolt technology.
This guide also provides product details on the three different types of RotaBolt tension monitoring devices:
Precision wireless monitoring of bolted joint integrity throughout installation and operation.
Each RotaBolt RB1 Touch is calibrated to lock the RotaCap at the desired preload tension value on installation with an accuracy of ±5%.
RotaBolt RB2 Touch features two tension settings within a single sensor for even greater control and monitoring.
On‑site supervision, installation or monitoring of bolting and tension indicating fasteners.
