Enerpac introduces new bolt tensioners

With its beginnings in apple orchards, this company has returned to its green roots by machining large parts for the wind-power industry.


Enerpac, an international market leader in high-pressure hydraulics, recently introduced its new portfolio of Power Generation bolt tensioners for critical fastening applications. Three new bolt tensioner series are designed for maximum durability in harsh environments, ease-of-use, and improved speed of operation.

The PGT-Series Double Deck and Single-Stage Bolt Tensioners have a broad range and provide high performance in tight spaces typically found in wind and gas turbines. Key features, including auto-retract pistons, over-stroke protection, and auto-engage nut rundown, help make the PGT-Series bolt tensioners fast, durable, and easy to use.

The FTR-Series Foundation Bolt Tensioners are designed specifically for tensioning wind-tower foundations bolts. These bolt tensioners provide the speed and precision required by this critical application. Long stroke models provide greater speed and ease-of-use by enabling applications to be completed in a single pull.

The FTE-Series Elliptical Foundation Bolt Tensioners provide an ideal fastening solution on wind-tower foundation applications where limited space between the stud and wall prevent the use of standard tools. They feature an elliptical geometry, which enables fit in narrow access foundation applications without reducing load capabilities. In addition to close-clearance applications, FTE-Series Bolt Tensioners make the perfect “universal solution” that will work in nearly any foundation application, whether standard or narrow access.

In addition to the standard Portfolio of Bolt Tensioners, as part of an ongoing effort to support the industry, Enerpac is also releasing a series of customized kits designed for critical installation and maintenance applications in gas plants. Enerpac’s experienced team of tensioning professionals in its Bolting Center of Excellence provides expert technical support and specializes in creating custom solutions for these applications.
