Up to 650° F for extended run time and thermal cycling
Valley Forge & Bolt, America’s leading manufacturer of load indicating fasteners, is proud to announce the new High Temp Maxbolt®. The robust performer is able to operate in temperatures up to 650° F for near limitless applications and proven performance in extended high temperature run times and thermal cycling.
The new High Temp Maxbolt®, like the original Maxbolt®, helps to reduce downtime, premature wear, and catastrophic joint failures in critical industries—including processing, mining, and energy. Maxbolt® products feature a built-in analog gauge. At a glance, installation technicians know when proper load is achieved. During operation, technicians literally see if load ever falls out of spec on any bolt, addressing the need immediately instead of waiting for critical equipment failure.
With an accuracy of +/- 5%, compliant with ASTM F2482, the High Temp Maxbolt® provides real-time tension indication where process and environment may result in elevated temperatures. Employing all similar materials, a high-temperature lens, and easy-to-read gauge, High Temp Maxbolt® operates both in rapid thermal cycle applications and in prolonged high-temp situations.
“We know customers have been eager for a high-temperature version of Maxbolt® because they value the safety and time-savings it brings to their applications,” said James Brooks, Valley Forge & Bolt’s head of engineering and business development. “We’re pleased that we have combined the right blend of materials and precision worthy of the Maxbolt® name.”
High Temp Maxbolt® is available in all the standard diameters and grades as original Maxbolt®.
