The Best Way To Bolt!


All the advantages of our popular Squirter® DTI without the feeler gage

  • Our DuraSquirt® DTI will simplify your bolt-up program.
    A feeler gage is no longer required!

    This latest version of our self-indicating DTI allows for inspection on your schedule. The Squirt™ indication withstands the test of time, leaving positive proof that the bolts have been tensioned, validating that the crew have done their job well and that the connection will function as intended.

    Specify it!

    Add the following statement to your structures bolting specification.

    "All High Strength Structural Bolts shall include an F959(M) DuraSquirt DTI, quenched and tempered in accordance with ASTM F959 section 4.3.2, manufactured by Applied Bolting Technology, and installed and inspected, per their instructions."

Engineered to Last

The Squirt™ media in DuraSquirt® DTIs has been engineered to withstand the abuse from front exhaust guns, winds, heavy rains, heat and cold. To prove how much abuse DuraSquirt® DTIs can withstand, we ran one through an automated dishwasher for 1 year. Despite the daily punishment of heated turbulent water and detergent, the Squirt™ media was still visible.

Positive Proof

Erectors can prove they have tensioned all the bolts. Inspectors can visually note that the bolts have been tensioned. Owners can come along as needed without rushing. They can do all of this without a feeler gage.
