The following is a recommended maximum torque table for bolt tensioners to help the operator determine the torque of hydraulic bolt tensioners to select the right bolt tensioners.

The datas are mainly suitable for tendeur de boulon and hydraulic nut.

Attention:
The data in the chart is measured under 60% yield limit of the bolt, the recommended tightening torque is
70-80% of above data.
For example, for M42 grade 10.8 bolt, the tightening torque is 605*(70-80)% = 423.5-484KN.
