Enerpac electric tensioning pump

Enerpac introduced its new electric tensioning pump, the ZUTP1500-S Series.

Enerpac ZUTP-S SeriesIts pendant-operated solenoid valve is ideal for multiple bolt tensioning applications and allows for single-person operation. The operator can pressurize and retract the tensioner directly from the pendant. The pump achieves high-pressure without the need for an intensifier. This allows for low-maintenance and less cost for the end user.

“The ZUTP-S Series is typically used in oil and gas, wind power and power plant applications,” said Jay Baudhuin, senior global product manager. “It works well when used for critical joints in the assembly of gas and wind turbines, compressors, power shaft couplings and oil and gas pipelines. This tensioning pump is extremely reliable and provides great power and precision that our customers value.”

Key features include:

• 7 hp heavy-duty universal motor provides the best performance-to-weight ratio
• Easy access manual override valve quickly releases pressure if power is lost
• Replaceable 10-micron reservoir breather and inline high-pressure filter helps maintain oil cleanliness for optimum performance

Another feature of the electric tension pump is the two-stage pump design that provides high-flow at low-pressure for fast system fills and controlled flow at high-pressure for accurate operation. It also has a panel-mounted 6-inch pressure gauge with a polycarbonate cover set into the protective metal shroud for improved visibility.
