A company within the oil and gas sector were having issues with bolt tightening method. Their current method was utilizing various tools for the management of the pipeline. The main method using a manual wrench and pump was affecting the workers causing them to become fatigued and the overall implementation was too slow for maintenance and repair.
Atlas Copco supplied the company with 44 Low Profile Hydraulic Wrenches, the RTX along with a P150 three stage pump which has a much higher efficiency than a single stage pump. The high reliability of the hydraulic torque wrench helped the customer with their daily work, giving them confidence for emergency repairs.
The company also undertook bolting training improving their competency operating the tool. With the new Atlas Copco process in place the company will be able to save considerable time and money on their future shutdowns.
