The deterioration of industrial bolts in areas that are consistently damp or maintain other less than desirable conditions is a problem for many industries, as it diminishes the integrity and security of machinery that often poses a very real risk to its operators. The machinery or fixtures that use industrial bolts and other similar products are wind turbines, cranes, off road equipment, and machinery in oil and gas, mining and construction, power plants, ship manufacture, and steel mill industries. Wind turbines take the kinetic energy wind provides and turns it into mechanical energy. The people who maintain, repair, or work on the machinery or fixtures that use industrial bolts must always be aware of this risk. Other tools for similar industries and machinery use hydraulics as well. For example, hydraulic flange spreaders are used for medium and large high pressure flanges. They are also considered more safe and efficient than other types of flange wedges, which pose a risk of dislodging from the flange and causing dangerous conditions that can lead to industrial accidents.

When removing such a bolt or performing other tightening and removal of nuts and bolts, electric torque wrenches are the best choice for the job. They allow the person working to exert the right amount of force that the job requires. Many nuts and bolts require accurate torque for optimal performance. Hydraulic torque wrenches perform similar jobs, but they use hydraulic systems to aid in the exertion of force. While hydraulic torque wrenches are more advantageous than other types of wrenches, they also require torque wrench calibration. The ability of hydraulic torque wrenches to measure the amount of torque applied to the nut or bolt depends in its calibration, which must be maintained in order for proper measurement.
