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.
