Groundforce Major Projects Hydraulic Nut acts directly behind the locking screws, offering the ability to both pre-load the MP750 strut to a high level on installation, as well as providing a safe and controlled means of releasing the strut under residual load.
The Nuts require a dedicated high-pressure hydraulic actuation system. Installation and removal operations are supervised by our experienced site installation team.
Deflection reducing strut pre-loading of up to 4000kN can be achieved, however this must be specified as part of the detailed design proposals. It is strongly recommended that this equipment is used in conjunction with the Senceive data monitoring system.
