Wear eye protection equipment when using hydraulic equipment.

Calibrate pressure gauges annually and certificate of inspection must be available.

Typical hydraulic tensioning equipment includes the following:

  • Hydraulic pump (hand or pneumatic)
  • Pressure gauges and fittings
  • Hoses
  • Hydraulic jack

Carry out following checks prior every use:

  • Oil level in pump
  • Jack threads and general condition. Renew leaking seal rings
  • Hydraulic hose and fittings
  • Follow maker’s instructions when using the hydraulic equipment for tensioning and releasing sequences
  • Never over extend the maximum lift of the hydraulic jack
  • Raise and lower the hydraulic pressure in small increments
  • Do not hammer hydraulic jacks to get them to seat
  • Ensure pressure is released after use
  • Clean all components and store properly to avoid damage
