Power Generation

iStock 000012524570 LargeMaxpro has spent more than 20 years providing torque tools and calibration services to the power generation industry.

Industrial bolting tools such as torque wrenches are at work in every level of a power generation plant, from construction to regular upkeep to emergency repairs.

In oil, coal and gas-fired plants, hydraulic torque wrenches are used for bolting on compressors, hosing and liners and to fasten casing bolts onto turbines.

In nuclear plants, hydraulic torque wrenches are used in general plant maintenance, and on bolting casket covers.

These wrenches are useful in the power generation industry because of their precision – an accuracy range of plus or minus three percent – and their capacity, which can reach as high as 100,000 ft./lbs.

Our hydraulic, electric and pneumatic torque wrenches can help you solve any bolting issue, while our accredited ISO/IEC 17025 torque calibration lab is utilized by industry leaders.
