TensionPro has a new range of gas turbine rotor tools for tensioning gas turbine compressor and turbine spindle bolts. The HTRT rotor tools are compact, lightweight and easy-to-use. This ensures accurate and reliable tensioning at minimal cost.
Designed to sit on adjacent bolts for equal tensioning of 100% of the bolts simultaneously, the HTRT solution provides the quickest, most accurate and uniform method of compressing discs and tensioning rotor bolts. Single tools can be used on a symmetrical arrangement when tensioning fewer bolts. This is ideal for the service workshop.
HTRT kits are supplied as complete solutions already configured for different build or maintenance requirements. These cover most gas turbine rotor bolt applications. Standard designs are available for most frames including 3,5, 6B, 6FA,7FA, 9FA, 7E, 9E, W251, 501D, 501F, 701F and H25. All the tools incorporate a fast, spring piston return with positive piston stop and gear drive nut rotation.
Said Richard Outram, TensionPro Sales Director: "These new HTRT tools are proving to be a popular addition to our expanding product range. We recently supplied a new 6FA compressor kit to a rotor overhaul centre in the Middle East. The customer benefited from a prior-to-order visit by a TensionPro engineer to fully verify the tool design was correct for the application. We then provided on-site supervision during first use to demonstrate the correct operating procedure."
