One of the main problems in Classified Environments both Hazardous and Explosive is the removal of bolts/nuts particularly in flanges but also in many other places. It is quite common for bolts that have been in service units for many years to be completely corroded or have stripped out threads.
When all else fails and torque wrenches can’t do the job there is another option. Our Certified Cold Work Tools can do the job. Our most simple and most cost-effective solution is to use tool model FG-2VX-50 / A-0107 in conjunction with Rotating File A-0004 and grind off one of the sides of the bolt.
Additionally, we can use our cutting system A-0300 or A-0302 with disc A-0503 Welding Seam Removal Disc and do the job. This solution, however, will require the use of the complete system. When it comes down to speed and effectiveness the solution with the Die Grinder FG-2VX-50 and Rotating File A-0004 has proven time and time again to be incredibly effective.
