Bolting joints with a single hydraulic torque wrench, one bolt at a time, may work for you if you’re not pressed for time or accuracy. But if time and accuracy are of the essence, then you’ll want to adopt a four-tool bolting method. Here are four reasons why.When you use four hydraulic torque wrenches simultaneously in a bolting application, you’re able to cut bolting times dramatically. In many cases, because you’re tightening four bolts at once, you can decrease bolting time by two-thirds or more.
Imagine using a single-tool, bolting method on a reactor dome. Such a process might normally take somewhere around 18 hours to complete. But with four-tool bolting, you might be able to get that same bolting job done is about five hours. That’s a time savings of more than 72 percent.
As a renter of industrial tools, a big part of the success of your business depends on accurately and dependably knowing where your tools are, who has them, and when they’ll be back. Some renters might use a log book or a computer spreadsheet, database, or other software tool to manually track their torque wrenches, hydraulic torque pumps, and the rest of their tool arsenal. However, using RFID technology could be a better solution.
In the world of BOP bolting, size matters. After all, BOP joints are a tight fit and represent some unique challenges when it comes to installation, repair, and breakdown.

Often, guys will simply take a slug wrench and a mallet and start pounding on boltsEven though this method is inefficient, inaccurate, and a lot of hard work, many tool operators still manually install, repair, and break down a BOP because manual tools are the only ones they have at their disposal.But there’s a good reason why your tool operators should use high-quality super thin hydraulic torque wrenches for BOP bolting applications. In fact, there are three good reasons.
