Industrial Bolting Tools for Rail Vehicles and Infrastructure

Industrial Bolting Tools for Rail Vehicles and Infrastructure1,000,000. That’s how many bolting connections will be needed to complete the Gotthard Base Tunnel, which is expected to begin operations later this year.

With a route length of 35 miles and 94 miles of various tunnels and passages below the Swiss Alps, it is both the longest and deepest traffic tunnel on the planet.

Regular readers of this blog will know that torque tools play an important role in a lot of important fields, from the oil and gas sector to power generation companies to the mining industry.

Industrial Bolting Tool Applications for the Oil and Gas Industry

iStock_92650695_SMALL-1.jpgOil and gas have helped power the world for the last century. These are busy, demanding industries, and they require tools that are both precise and durable. These tools include torque wrenches, which help find oil, transport it and refine it.
Let's take a closer look at how oil and gas industrial bolting tools help that industry function.

Exploration and production

  • Hydraulic torque wrenches are used on wellhead connections, including BOP, valves and flow lines.

Industrial Bolting Tool Applications For the Mining Industry

Industrial Bolting Tool Applications For the Mining IndustryMining is a tough job, one that requires tough workers and durable tools.

Those tools include hydraulic torque wrenches, which are at work on a wide range of mining applications, from vehicles hauling material to machinery digging deep below the earth.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the mining industrial bolting tools that help workers do their job:

Industrial bolting tools like torque wrenches are at work in every stage in the life of a power generation plant, from building to day-to-day maintenance to emergency repairs.

Let’s take a closer look at some applications for power generation industrial bolting tools.

Oil/Coal/Gas-Fired Plants

  • Hydraulic torque wrenches are used for bolting on the crusher’s feed platform, hosing and liners, and for bolting on compressors.
  • Hydraulic torque wrenches fasten the casing bolts onto turbines
