Managed from the Hi-Force UK Head Office, the On-Site Bolting Services Division can offer clients pre-start on-site surveys, full and comprehensive analysis of bolted
joint needs and requirements, development of correct procedures, including all required bolted
joint load calculations, on-site supervision, using ECITB qualified and trained Supervisors, on-site bolted
joint integrity training courses, for the nominated contractors technicians, full flange management control, utilising the Hi-Force BOLTRIGHT PRO calculation software and of course high quality UK manufactured bolting tools.
However, for most engineering projects, quantitative parameters, such as the cohesion and internal friction angle of bolted
rocks, are more significant than qualitative conclusions.
This plate can be used as a multi bolted
joint with two M10 bolts with different load introduction possibilities and to study the self-loosening behavior as in .

Other benefits of using and following the guidance in PCC-1-2010 are associated with passing hydro-tests the first time, quicker, leak-free startups, reduced bolted
flange joint emissions and joint failures, longer leak-free run cycles, and documentation for quality control and future reference.
Changing to a different sized motor for a given pump becomes a mere change-out of the pre-cast motor block that is bolted
to the shell of the pre-cast base plate and foundation unit.
If the belt is bolted
too much it won't allow for flexibility and will put stress on the tire.
Engineers can identify literally dozens of variables affecting the assembly of bolted
Over the centuries the technology and how it relates to bolted
joint integrity has improved significantly.
