Liner Bolts & Load Indicating Fasteners

Valley Forge & Bolt Mfg. Co., Phoenix, AZ, USA, offers the Sealing Mill™ Ridgeback® liner bolt designed and evaluated to prevent problems related to load distribution as well as slurry leakage, which can lead to 'racing'. Tire Sealing Mill Ridgeback produces effective sealing of the bolt to liner pocket throughout the full range of bolt capacity including very low loading conditions. Also, the polymer bushing transfers a pre-determined amount of bolt load while the remaining load is distributed higher up on the head.

Also offered by Valley Forge & Bolt Mfg. Co. are Max- bolt™ load indicating fasteners for users requiring direct load indication. Now the same technology can be installed in fasteners that were previously too small to accommodate a Maxbolt indicator. The Miniature Maxbolt™ was originally developed for a customer requiring fitment into a 5/8" diameter hex cap screw for mounting on a rail car.
