UK-based bolt tensioning experts TensionPro has launched HYCOBOLT, an advanced hydraulic coupling bolt designed to deliver high performance torque transmission for critical load rotating shafts and couplings.

HYCOBOLT is direct retrofit replacement to conventional fitted bolts on rotating machinery, providing significant benefits through both operational improvements in coupling performance and time saving during plant maintenance periods. Unlike conventional and previous generation coupling bolts, it can be installed and removed quickly and reliably.

The product has been developed by a highly experienced team and has been through an extensive research and development program.  Expert marketing, sales and engineering knowledge for this technology is being supplied by the launch team of TensionPro director Dave Metzger and HYCOBOLT chief designer Martin Walsh, who has vast experience in this market segment. 

Dave Metzger, Sales Director, said: “The HYCOBOLT fits well with our focus on special engineering bolting solutions. We like to work with customers directly to find solutions that give technical and operational improvements. The HYCOBOLT does that. The hydraulic coupling bolt technology is a natural extension of our expertise in high-pressure hydraulic bolting products and solutions.”  

Hydraulic coupling bolt technology is an established solution for the power generation industry and is supported by major OEMs. The HYCOBOLT can be used in all types of equipment from conventional steam to high efficiency gas turbines, hydro and wind turbines as well as large electric motor drives, marine propulsion shaft lines and heavy rotating machinery. It is available on quick turnaround times from TensionPro’s base in the UK.

TensionPro provides a one-stop shop for all bolt tensioning requirements covering equipment sales, repairs and refurbishment, spares, special tool designs, load calculations and new tensioner advice. Its core business spans the oil and gas, power generation, wind, civil and industrial markets.
