Pipeline Industry

Coming down the pipeline

Alltite has an extensive background with implementing bolting techniques in the pipeline industry. Being headquartered in the Midwest, pipelines from all over the U.S come through this area on their way across the nation. From 2” to 52” pipelines, we get them all. The associated booster stations and compressor stations are some of the biggest in the country.

Since 1988, we have been utilizing the newest technological innovations in torque tools to properly torque hundreds of pipeline flanges. We are among the first in this industry to implement the multi-spindle system using four or more wrenches on a single flange. This method is not only used to decrease actual bolting time, but is proven to be better for gasket closure, bolts and the flange.

In early 2000, we started utilizing stud tensioner systems. This method simultaneously tensions the bolts with even 50% coverage. It is safe, fast and has higher accuracy than torquing as it has no coefficient of friction.

Our technical bolting crews go all over the U.S. torquing and tensioning flanges on pipelines. Contact us to learn more about our technical services and the proven solutions we can provide.
