How Do Hydraulic Tensioners Work?

Hydraulic tensioners are industrial tools that are designed to help stretch bolts of large diameters so they are able to achieve accurate preload. The main reason people use this type of tool is to help properly install multiple bolts without worrying about inaccuracies that can be caused by friction.

The mechanics behind using this type of industrial tool is relatively easy. The user/operator will take the tool and place it into position. The tool consists of a bridge, piston, and a puller, which all need to be properly placed. Once the tool is properly placed all of these parts will be hydraulically pressured, which is what stretches the bolt.

After the bolt has been stretched, the user is able to turn the nut by hand, which allows the extension of the bolt. Visit our website at to learn more about how these types of torque tools and other power tools work.

What is the Price of Hydraulic Tensioners and Where Can I Find the Best Quality Options?

This type of industrial tool has so many different styles and variations that it is difficult to give a specific price because it varies so dramatically. The price will vary depending upon what industry the tool will be used in, what style it is, and how many are being ordered at one time.
