Squirter DTIs

We are proud to announce the launch of our mobile web site. The pace of modern construction require technical information to be at the ready, not when people return to their desks. We realize that smartphones are the quickest way to this pertinent information.

Squirter® DTIs Covered by Specification, in Modern Steel.

AISC's July 2012 issue of MSC Modern Steel Construction magazine has an article, Twist and Turns, written by Robert (Bob) Shaw, Jr., P.E., Steel Structures Technology Center, Owner. Bob's article covers what's going on in structural bolting and discusses our Squirter DTIs, how they work, and that they are covered by specification.

Scott Melnick, AISC VP, mentions Applied Bolting's training videos in his MSC's Editor's Note. With us recently passing 10,000 YouTube views (not including the thumb drive, DVDs and views at our website), Scott's mention and ENR covering us in 2011, it seems our Squirter® DTI and Field Bolting Videos are a huge success. These videos were created to provide jobsite assistance anytime anywhere somebody needs a little more guidance. We even put a QR Code on each and every keg of DTIs that one can scan with a smart phone to load the videos! We are just trying to make bolting easy and we might be succeeding. More

At AASHTO's annual Subcommittee on Bridges and Structures (SCOBS) meeting held in Norfolk, VA, a ballot was passed that specifically mentions and includes Self-Indicating DTIs (Squirter® DTI's) as an approved option for indicating when at least the minimum required clamp load has been achieved in structural bolts on steel bridges.

Occasionally people question whether Squirter® DTIs conform to ASTM standards. To put this question to bed once and for all, ASME standard B18.2.6-2010 Fasteners for Use in Structural Applications now recognizes silicone emitting type load indicator washers. Read More...
Bolts with Squirter DTIs
Applied Bolting Technology manufactures direct tension indicating (DTI) washers. These washers are used to get bolts installed to the correct TENSION, regardless of the bolt's torque resistance. Tens of millions of Squirter® DTI's have revolutionized the bolt-up process on power plants and other structural steel projects, making bolt installation and inspection easy and accurate. Now the Wind Power Industry is using them too.
Squirter DTIs
Self-indicating direct tension indicators, called Squirter® DTIs, are made to the same high quality standard and compression load resistance as our standard DTIs. Squirter® DTIs are simply regular DTI's with a flexible silicone embedded in the depressions under the bumps. As the bumps in the steel DTI washer are compressed by the action of tightening the bolt, the silicone is squirted out and becomes a visible indicator of correct bolt tension.
