Bolt torquing and tensioning involves the precise application of torque to fasteners, ensuring secure and reliable connections. The benefits of torquing and bolting range from enhanced safety and structural integrity to improved operational efficiency. By utilizing proper torque techniques, the risk of a fastener loosening, or failure is significantly reduced, minimizing the potential for accidents, leaks, or costly equipment damage.
Colt’s accurate and consistent torquing practices follow PCC1 torquing and bolting standards to ensure the proper installation, tightening, and torquing of bolts in critical applications. The standards outline specific torque values, bolt patterns, and tightening sequences, considering factors such as bolt material, size, and surface conditions. Our technicians’ meticulous approach helps maintain the integrity of the bolted joint, preventing issues such as gasket extrusion, flange deformation, or bolt relaxation.
