Hydraulic bolts are acknowledged as a major development and represent progression in bolting technology. Many major ship owners currently benefit from the installation of hydraulic bolts where they are fitted on all types of vessels including LNG, Container ships, Tankers, Ro‐Ro and many more.
With more than 15 years’ experience in bolting technologies, Auxano’s experienced team designed and invented their Easi and Flexi bolts.
As their name suggests, Easi Fit and Flexi Bolt are simple to install and suitable for any flange configuration. They are supplied smaller in diameter than the hole and are therefore installed with little effort. Using a portable tool kit, the diameter expands whilst inside the hole. This creates the interference fit required to transmit the torque. The same tool kit is used to tighten the nuts and apply the necessary clamping force on the flange.
Removal is just as simple and utilises the same tool kit. Bolts are removed from the holes with the same simplicity with which they were installed. There is no damage to the holes or the bolts and they can be re‐used.
