Title: BOLT TENSIONING SYSTEM
Abstract:
Embodiments disclosed herein generally relate to a system (100) and method for tensioning a bolt. The bolt tensioning system may be used with variable length connection members (150), for example studs, in any one or more of the drilling, subsea, and process industries to couple a first member to a second member. The bolt tensioning system may remain coupled to the first member (200) and the second member (300), while applying tension to all of the bolts at the same time, rather than having to torque or tension each bolt individually. The bolt system may accurately and uniformly tension all bolts in a single operation to provide reliable connections.
