Boltight Typhoon+Boltight Typhoon+

Nord-Lock Group is celebrating the launch of the new Typhoon+ hydraulic bolt tensioner which has been developed to meet the technical and environmental demands of the wind energy market, where high bolt load and restricted access applications are common challenges. 


Part of Nord-Lock Group, Boltight has developed a deep understanding of hydraulic bolt tensioning and is working hard to deploy the latest technology and advanced bolt tensioning solutions that permanently eliminate the risk of loose or over tightened bolts. 


The robust Typhoon+ design ensures reliability during frequent and repeated use necessary on wind turbine projects, both on and offshore, for low radial clearance applications. 


The new design offers: 

  • Ease of use – a fast automatic spring-return design using a single reaction allows a full return to zero stroke piston retraction, and removes the need for manual input.
  • Improved seal technology - reduces seal changeouts and enhances general performance throughout the high cycle usage. 
  • Safety - Over-stroke prevention removes the possibility of over-stroking the pistons. Internal fail-safe technology keeps the tensioner on the bolt in the event of puller bar failure, ensuring user safety.  
  • High Life Cycle - Long service intervals, not restricted by a fixed number of cycles thanks to high grade material puller bar. 
  • Low Maintenance – due to an improved spring-loaded auto engagement gear driven nut rotating socket with a geared drive, and it's easy to use. 
  • Durability - a unique surface finish provides long lasting protection in harsh environments


When asked about the launch of Typhoon+, Boltight’s Commercial & Projects Manager, Gavin Coopey said, 


"We're delighted to be launching this new solution to our overall product offering. We feel confident that the Typhoon+ will play a crucial role by making the process of using hydraulic bolt tensioners on wind turbine bolts much quicker, improve durability and reduce downtime”. 


Typhoon+ is available beginning July 2021. To find out more visit the Typhoon+ section on the Nord-Lock Group website at www.nord-lock.com.
