Boltstress G6

Improved Reliability

Boltstress G6

The G5 broke so many boundaries when it set the new benchmark for ultrasonic bolt tension monitoring, it was difficult to envisage where a higher standard could come from. Well it's taken nearly 12 years to arrive but here it is.

All the standard G5 functions but additional new standards this instrument sets are:

  • New Features
  • Sunlight readable colour QVGA display (320x240 pixels).
  • Combined digital and RF display
  • Auto Correlation - Transducer Placement.
  • Custom auto calibration feature.
  • USB 1.1 connectivity.
  • 4GB internal & up to 64GB external SD memory.
  • Import & export files - between Boltstress G6 and G5 instruments.
  • Li-Ion pack & 6 AA emergency battery backup option
  • Measure Modes - Pulse-Echo, Echo-Echo, Echo-Echo-Verify (triple echo).
  • Analog, serial & alarm outputs.
  • Up to 25 metre long bolts can be measured.


Ultrasonic Bolt Tension Measurement for Operators

We encourage our clients to undertake our product training service in order to get the best results. This stage of the course prepares operators to:

  • Select Appropriate transducers

  • Take measurements

  • Understand the waveforms

  • Use the limits function

  • Store readings

  • Review the findings

Ultrasonic Bolt Tension Measurement for Engineers

In most cases we find that the set up of the system is best carried out away from the workface.

We carry out in depth training of Engineers (or similar Technical staff) in the pre-programming of the required technical data to carry out measurements, this includes:

  • Setting up groups

  • Material selection

  • Bolt geometry

  • Calibration

  • Initial calculations

  • Data range settings

  • Downloading Data

  • Using the interface software

  • Graphing results

Data setup

On larger construction projects there is often a requirement for all bolting data to be set up into a Database for ease of use during operation.

We offer this service combined and carried out at the same time as our on-site training service, this brings benefits to both the constructors and operating company.

Set up Data is established and stored into Clients system.

Normally during the training phase together with the customer we establish file saving methods, directories & internal back up methodology.

Set up Data is backed up to Boltstress Ultrasonics System.

All original data is also backed up to our system so that should a major IT failure happen on site or Data simply get lost during the transfer from constructor to operating company we have a full back up copy for restore capacity
