ISS' Stud Removal Services, Studbusters®, and our specialized tools have revolutionized the Industry, saving time and money in the removal of Studs, Bolts and Pins. Using traditional removal methods, approximately half of the studs removed will incur damage to either the housing, the studs or both in most cases, and require a lot of time and manpower. The primary reason these methods prove to be ineffective is side loading-the mechanical binding of the threaded surfaces against each other.
Stud & Bolt Removal
ISS' uses Techniques and tools that have solved the side-loading problem. Our stud removal tools use Pneumatic Energy, through air guns, to power our equipment. This accomplishes two things: (1) It removes all side loading, and (2) It reduces stud torsion which is accomplished as follows: Our tool, attached to an air gun, fits over the stud. When the air gun is turned on, the jaws on the inside are 180° apart thereby creating an equal gripping force around the stud. The tool is designed to be center driven, which transfers 99% the static hold on the stud and allow it to be freed. Consequently, the tool locks on the stud and, thus, becomes part of the stud. Unlike a welded-on nut, it does not bounce on the stud. In most cases even the largest studs are removed in seconds with no heat build-up in the threaded housings, and no damage to the threaded portion.
