Stud tensioning is one of the most efficient methods of applying a clamping load onto a bolted joint. With hydraulic tensioning the stud is hydraulically stretched and this load is then captured by turning the nut snug to the joint face and releasing they hydraulic pressure. This method eliminates the effect of friction on the applied load. Pickford can supply rental hydraulic stud tensioners to all of Western Canada including Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia from our 40,000 sq.ft. Edmonton warehouse.
