Group Managing Director of Hi-Force, Kevin Brown, explains: "During construction and commissioning of new facilities, the issue of correct "bolt up" of critical and non-critical joints, is often an oversight, during the construction contractor bidding phase, which usually results in conflict, between the plant owners, EPC contractors and the construction sub-contractors, around who are responsible, for the cost and provision of the required bolting tools and the necessary expertise, to carry out the bolting work.
To quantify the influence of bolting parameters on the increase of the shear resistance of joints, Spang and Egger [26] conducted 60 laboratory shear tests on different kinds of rocks with 8 mm diameter steel bolts.
This failure process progressively extends from loaded end (borehole collar) to unloaded end (borehole bottom) and finally leads to the total failure of bolting system; Figure 2 schematically describes the specific mechanism under pullout load, which is similar to the situation in laboratorial test.
Fastorq Bolting Systems claims its Spin-Torque IL360 hydraulic torque wrench (Circle 212) is the fastest wrench of its kind, providing continuous nut rotation at ten times the speed of conventional ratcheting hydraulic wrenches.
Unlike conventional mobile bolting machines, the ARO rapid entry mobile bolter (REMB) incorporates a front platform to which are fitted four, semi automatic, proven, ARO Series 4000 roof bolting rigs.
Bolting problems with potentially serious consequences have surfaced in the nuclear-power, automotive, aerospace, pressure-vessel and piping industries.
So why does one use bolting technology to join components together?
With previous hydraulic wrench design, the reaction arm was clamped onto adjacent bolts during the bolting. The body of the in-line wrench has a reaction pad, which pushes against any adjacent solid object to provide a reaction point.

A bolting program was initiated after displacements continued despite two redesigns: the first, de.
Rock and cable bolting more and more widely used for speed, safety, cost
Here, systematic rock bolting has been employed in a regular room-and-pillar sandstone-mining operation for over 20 years.
