All FORCE10 tensioners have been designed without the need for small bonded seals. Bonded seals are used by most bolt tensioning manufacturers to seal the hydraulic connec- tions to the tensioner. These tiny seals are prone to failure and when just one of the many bonded seals used in a tensioning system fail, the whole tensioning procedure comes to a halt until the failed bonded seal is replaced. Tentec has designed out the use of these fragile seals so that this new range of tensioners no longer rely on bonded seals, improving safety and minimising downtime.
The use of Tentec's Link Hose system offers a fast, simple and economical method of connecting multiple tensioners together - the number of hoses required is the same as the number of tools to be linked - a simple formula to remember.
Over the years Tentec has developed a class leading high pressure seal technology. This mature seal technology is industry proven and offers many 1000's of reliable and safe pressure cycles.
The Tentec air operated pump units are designed to be failsafe, user friendly, lightweight and compact. Pump assemblies can be configured in many possible combinations,a choice of air motors and pressure gauges are available to ensure that the correct specifications to meet your Bolt Tensioning requirements.
Light weight and compact design
Two speed operation reduces handle strokes by as much as 75% over single speed pumps.
Lower Handle effort to minimize operator fatigue
The Tentec WTP3 is a self contained electric driven high pressure hydraulic pump unit that can generate pressures of up to 1600 bar. The unit is a perfect match with Tentec bolt tensioning tools. The WTP3 Pump from Tentec is available in many different voltage and phase configurations
