Leak free at power station
The application of RotaBolt's technology driven approach to bolted joint integrity has achieved a total leak-free start at Antwerp's Nuclear Generation plant following its annual shut down. For the first time in seven years, a 24in steam valve has remained leak free using RotaBolt's tension control system.
Following a presentation on the advantages of using Rotabolt tension control, engineers at the plant approached Louis Serneels from James Walker Belgium at the end of 2006. RotaBolt's technical team, working with James Walker Belgium, recommended the use of RotaBolt 2 to achieve the necessary installed design tension and for the ongoing monitoring in service.
RotaBolt 2 offers two tension settings in a single sensor and features a dual load indicator cap - the outer cap for high tension setting and inner cap for low tension - giving the choice of an operational tension range for overload or maintenance control.
