Company FD Jay Rossouw tells Engineering News that the com- pany has been awarded two major contracts to supply Swagebolt pins and collars as well as Swagefast installation equipment for projectsthat are scheduled for completion later this year.
He says the products have been manufactured at Swagefast’s Germiston plant, in Johannesburg, and that they are being used on a reflective mirror that heats the renewable-energy plant’s tubing oil, thereby producing steam energy.
“The Swagefast installation equipment that is being used on these projects works with the fastener to pull and clamp the application together with ease and safety in mind. The installation equipment systemcomprises a tool, nose assembly, hose set and Powerig unit.
“The Powerig unit drives the tool while the nose assembly provides the installation link between the fastener and the tool. Installation tools and nose assemblies are designed to install specific fastener types and dia- meters,” Rossouw explains.
