Ann Arbor, Michigan (PressExposure) September 21, 2009 -- The Easy Bolt provides the function of conventional nuts and bolt sets, but uses a simple lever action instead of wrenches. Easy Bolt advantages include:
â¢ Fast, no-tool clamp and release action saves field labor time â¢ Fast and simple action reduces worker exposure to wellhead conditions that can be safety concerns, such as below grade gas exposure or insects. â¢ Easy Bolts also eliminate the cost, time and hazards associated with having to saw off galled or corroded nuts and bolts.
The Easy Bolt fits through the flange bolt holes, automatically grips the lower flange, and is tightened by simply pushing the cam lever down. Easy Bolts are constructed of high quality stainless steels chosen to avoid galling and corrosion, with a heavy duty, investment cast lever. They are capable of delivering clamping forces well beyond those needed to seal the flanges.
