The Hydraulic Jacks have been in existence for more than 200 years and have evolved throughout the time into various advancements and varieties. However, they’ve been doing one thing common for ages – raising loads with the help of pumping oil in a lift ram. This makes them capable of causing potentially high damage in case they’re used incorrectly. In this article, you’ll know about some of the most important safety tips that you need to follow while working with hydraulic jacks of any kind.

1.Manuals are Not Useless

Different equipment has their features, followed by detailed safety procedures and risks as well. Therefore, you must read the instruction manual thoroughly and even if any safety procedure contradicts with a tip listed here, make sure to follow the manual. In case the manufacturer didn’t provide you a manual in the packaging, you can download one for your model on the internet. Nowadays, companies are reducing paperwork and providing essential guides such as manuals online in printable format.

Flange Facing

Flanges play a crucial role in major industries like pipelines, power, petrochemicals, oil & gas, and many more. Some of the flange maintenance operations include flange facing and controlled bolting to avoid leakages and mitigate losses. To ensure minimum flange downtime and production losses, a plant should be equipped with all the essential flange maintenance tools. In this article, we will talk about the essential tools to ensure flange maintenance operations are completed as quick as possible.

HiSTRONG Jacks

Hydraulic jacks are applicable in multiple industries as they offer convenient load-lifting solutions. These jacks work on Pascal’s principle of fluid mechanics where these tools generate large amounts of load to lower or elevate applications. In this article, we will elaborate more on the types and role of hydraulic cylinders and jacks used in different industries.

HYTORC Avanti

While we have already addressed the basics of torquing in our previous articles, the fundamentals of bolting is to stretch the bolt enough so that the nut could be loosened/tightened. Having said that, it is proven that combining torque with angle tightening methods can reduce the uncertainty in the bolt tightening process by reducing the dependency on torque control alone. In this article, we will talk about how torque and angle enhance the efficiency of bolting operations and the different types of torque wrenches that offer the same.

TensionPro Sonar

As bolts in major industrial applications tend to loosen due to impact from constant vibrations and load, bolt tensioners and torque wrenches are frequently used during shutdown to tighten them and maintain joint-integrity. However, it is an extremely tedious and time consuming process considering the fact that multiple bolts need to be torqued or tensioned with limited tensioners and torque wrench. In this article, we will explain how measuring bolt elongation with an ultrasonic bolt measurement device like the TensionPro Sonar can confirm if retightening of bolts is required.

Lion gun bolting

Impact wrenches are widely used in manufacturing industries. Apart from the known fact that a torque wrench offers better accuracy than an impact wrench, did you know that torque wrenches also ensures operator safety. In this article, we will talk the Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVs) caused by impact wrenches and conclude with a solution to the existing problem. We will address the repercussions and the impact of this syndrome in current times.
