Installation & Removal of Coupling Bolts

INTEGRA Coupling Services has been a key player in the development, servicing, training and installation of Hydraulic Radial-Fit Bolts. The hydraulic coupling bolts overcome many of the problems associated with conventional coupling bolts and quickly help to re-establish coupling concentricity. Proper machining of coupling holes and sleeves are vital for efficient assembly and disassembly of hydraulic coupling bolts.

Coupling holes and bolt assemblies are uniquely marked to ensure each bolt assembly is installed in its corresponding hole in a sequence that reduces the number of shaft rotations. With the sleeve properly positioned and the bolt clam force tension properly applied without damage to the coupling assembly, the process is completed in a save and productive manner.

Disassembly can usually be accomplished using the oil injection process for ease of bolt removal, although in some situations a combination of oil injection and use of tensioning equipment is needed. Knowledge of these combined methods is critical to prevent schedule creep and avoid damage to the assembly while maintaining a safe work environment. Once bolt assemblies have been removed, each part and bolt hole is inspected, conditions documented, and repairs made as necessary prior to assembly.

Frequently Asked Questions

The drive piston automatically retracts after each operation to ensure correct piston stroke every time.

Tools are lighter in weight, smaller in size, yet produces much higher applied loads to deliver greater clamping force.

The tool socket is permanently built into the head. Simplifies and speeds up installations/removal. Eliminates delays due to misplaced or lost sockets

Duel inlet and outlet parts make it much easier to quickly and safely install/remove hose harness.

In the unlikely event of a seal failure, oil pressure is dispersed inside the tool housing thus eliminating the danger of a high pressure blow out.

High visibility maximum stroke indicator. Captured socket for faster operation. Fits all standard flanges. Piston over-stroke prevention.
