After years of research and development, Xtreme BoltingServices, Inc., introduced the patent pending Xtreme BoltingMachine (XBM) at the Power-Gen show in November 2006.The XBM has several advantages over the Induction Heatingmethod that has been the industry standard for bolt removalduring an outage. Our system is light weight, economical touse, simple to operate and robust in construction.Size and weight are just two small advantages of the system,but when one considers that a single, 85 lb machine canremove 6 bolts at a time, the money saved on reducedoutage time quickly becomes the biggest advantage of all.The Xtreme Bolting Machine and the services from XtremeBolting Services offered in conjunction with TTI hascontinued to gain popularity since its introduction.

ADVANTAGES:

  • Capable of heating six (6) bolts at one time anywhere within fifty (50) feet of the machine location.
  • Remove or tighten within one shift
  • Shell removal in 1/3 the time it takes for induction removal, thus reducing outage time by days.
  • Can save Millions of dollars in down time
  • Can pull studs on stop valves and the turbine shell at the same time.
  • No water required.
  • No special wiring required.
  • Utilize the 480V/60 amp service right on the turbine deck.
  • Lightweight machine needs no crane or forklift to move.
  • Options available for basic heat treating applications such as PWHT and Pre-heating.

THE MOST ACCURATE WAY TO CONFIRM CRITICAL BOLT LOADS

Principal Features and BenefitsTORKWORX offers the most accurate method of determining the stress or load on bolts possible. Our Ultrasonic Bolt Load Verification Services utilizes state-of-the-art monitoring equipment provided by TORKWORX and the most skilled technicians in the field. We can provide you with instant digital readings that allow for the proper and precise adjustments to specified clamping force.

Ultrasonic Bolt Load Verification from TORKWORX eliminates the guesswork in proper clamping pressure. Ultrasonic Verification instantly provides accurate, digitized read-out of the true bolt load. This system allows the technician to adjust and verify the correct specified clamping pressure to every bolt. Internal algorithms compensate for material and temperature changes and ensure a consistent load to each bolt.

The simple operation and accurate calibration make it a must for dependable bolt load verification. Lightweight Portable Measurement Designed for mobility, this compact system weighs less than 3 pounds.

Its rugged design is suitable in any plant environment and has a continuous operating time of more than 40 hours. Our portable unit features large, color-coded function keys for rapid set-up and ease of operation. The automatic waveform and bar graph LCD display illustrates bolt stress, elongation, load, and time of flight. Instant and accurate TORKWORX Ultrasonic Bolt Load Verification ensures fast and reliable data for accurate analysis and reporting.

REDUCE COSTLY DOWNTIME USING THE TURBINE CASING CLOSURE SYSTEM

Principal Features and Benefits

Accelerate your turbine outage with the Hydraulic Casing Closure System using Hydraulic Nut Technology. Quickly close and open inner & outer shells in about 2 to 4 hours.

Traditional methods of bolt heating and torque during routine maintenance procedures can be time consuming, costly, and a safety hazard. A typical closure procedure for inner and outer cylinders using this method can take up to 60 man hours to complete. The Turbine Casing Closure System from TORKWORX is a safe and cost effective solution.

This system eliminates the need for bolt heating and torque between initial breakout and final closure by pressurizing select studs simultaneously, quickly generating loads sufficient to simulate operating conditions. Initial installation and final removal of the system can be completed in 2 to 4 hours. Specially designed Hydraulic Nuts are used to maintain loads on the inner shell while the outer shell is installed for alignment checks or other maintenance procedures. Since each Hydraulic Nut is configured to stud size and threads per inch, the system components can be utilized on the inner and outer shells of the HP, IP and LP as well as control valves and other bolted flanges.

The Hydraulic Turbine Casing Closure System can also be used to speed up final closure. Each Hydraulic Casing Closure System can be configured to your particular outage requirements. The system is designed to accommodate virtually every manufacturer turbine model. It can also be configured to simultaneously pressurize the HP, IP and LP sections, if required for speed. The Hydraulic Turbine Casing Closure System is now available in all size ranges, from 2” to 6” nuts.

The operation of the Hydraulic Turbine Casing Closure System is fast and easy.

The operator firsthand tightens the Hydraulic Nuts on the stud. He then connects the hoses, which have quickconnect fittings, from the pump to the Hydraulic Nut. After running the pump to achieve a pre-determined pressure, he tightens the Locking Collar and releases the pressure. The Locking Collar retains the load in the stud. The Hydraulic Turbine Casing Closure System is specially designed when checking turbine internal clearances. These compact Hydraulic Nuts temporarily replace exciting nuts on the inner and outer casings during the “tops-on, tops-off” process. When pressurized, they provide the clamping force to overcome casing distortion.

BENEFITS GAINED:

  • Portable, safe and easy to use
  • Tremendous Time Savings
  • Reduced Man hours
  • Shortens Critical Path Schedule
  • Eliminates dangerous CAL-RODs and Gas Heating
