Operating Procedure
For intensied cable truss tensioner
of the dogbone/wedge barrel.
A minimum of one inch of cable tail should
protrude from the end of the autogripper
assembly. (If the cable does not protrude
from the back of the tensioner the minimum
one inch length the jaws will not grip the cable
properly. There is signicant risk that the cable
will strip the wedge teeth).
Pressurize the cylinder to the desired load
(2,000 psi/17 ton maximum for the 0.6 x 30
ton cable see appendix 1 for a pressure
versus load plot). If the cylinder runs out of
travel before the load is reached, release the
pressure and slide the cylinder on further and
repeat the tensioning process.
The following wear components are available
for purchase from your local DSI supplier
(appendix 2):
Autogripper assembly
Autogripper wedges
O-Ring kit
Banana Nose
Ensure that all hydraulic ttings are tightened
before operation, and that the unit is in good
working order. Check the following:
There are no major dents in the housing.
That the autogripper assembly (gold in color)
is fully tightened against the face
of the piston.
That the autogripper wedges are in good
condition and are not chipped, dented or
missing teeth.
That there are no major leaks in the system.
Monitor during use the following
The autogripper remains screwed in tight
against the face of the piston
The gripper wedges do not become too dirty
That the wedge teeth do not wear too badly.
The autogripper wedges are designed for
reuse, but eventually need replacing.
Before placing the tensioner onto the cable,
ensure the cable has minimal dirt and or dust on
its surface. This dirt and dust will make it harder
for the wedges to grip the cable.
Slide assembly onto the tail of the cable until the
tensioner nose is fully seated against the wedges

Cable Tensioner Mark2
For tensioning cables and installing plates
Specications
A light weight and unique way for pre-loading
cable bolts, the DSI Cable Tensioner Mark2 grips
the end of the cable bolt and tensions it, leaving
only a short tail protruding from the bearing plate
(approx. 6"). The Cable Tensioner is a single
hydraulic ram driven by an air/hydraulic pump or by
machine hydraulics.
The jack weighs 25 lbs. The entire kit (jack
and pump) weighs 51lbs.
Two grip handles allow for operation by
one person.
Unit locks on the cable, until lanyard is pulled
to release spring loaded grippers.
Can be congured for all cable bolts, from 0.6"
to 0.7" and the DSI 0.9" HITEN cable bolt.
Capacity: 48,500 lbs
Bleed off: 15% i.e. cable lock-off load is 85%
of pulling force due to seating loss.
(for a typical 12' bolt)
Operation
Install the plate and wedge barrel with wedge on
the end of the cable bolt.
Push the Cable Tensioner on. It will self-lock onto
the cable.
Tension bolt to the desired load per hydraulic gage
included with the unit.
After stressing, the Cable Tensioner is easily
removed by pulling on the lanyard to release the
internal grippers.

Installation Guidelines
28mm hole diameters are preferred.
Hole depth is critical. Hole depth should
be approximately 155mm shorter than
the bolt length.
This allows for sufcient tail to t accessories,
roof plate, collar/wedges & Tensioner Unit.
After insertion of the chemical anchors the
bolt is rotated through the anchors while
pushing the bolt, fully, to the back of the hole.
It is important to follow the chemical
manufacturers recommended mixing and
hold times as printed on the chemical
anchor cartons. DO NOT OVER MIX.
The tensioner unit is connected to the HI-
TEN Strand Bolt and tension applied.
For further details refer to DSIs Tensioner
Unit user instruction guide.
Standard Lengths & Packaging
Standard HI-TEN Strand Bolts lengths
range from 4100 to 8100mm.
Collar/wedge assemblies are
supplied separately to the bolt.
Non-standard requirements are
available by negotiation.
HI-TEN Strand Bolt
General Features
The DSI HI-TEN Strand Bolt is a cable
designed to be installed as a long rock bolt
which is capable of being post-tensioned
at the face, or out-bye, to loads of up to
27 tonnes using the DSI Tensioner Unit.
The HI-TEN Strand Bolt is manufactured
from 21 wire strand having a 12mm square,
for mixing chemical anchors, welded to one
end of the strand.
The HI-TEN Strand Bolt has a special collar
and segmented wedge, which can sustain
collar loads of between 57 and 60 tons.
The HI-TEN Strand Bolt is designed for high
pre-tensioning using a point anchor system.
If full encapsulation is required, extra
slow speed chemical anchors of 20
minutes set time are available.
The HI-TEN Strand Bolt can also be
effectively used with cementitious grouts.
The HI-TEN Strand Bolt concept allows a
longer than seam height bolt to be installed
at up to 30 from the vertical at the face,
or out-bye, to supplement existing strata
reinforcement. Compatible domed plates
are available to be used with the
HI-TEN Strand Bolt.
The HI-TEN Strand Bolt system
is patent pending.

Section3-Page11
The Wedge Anchorage of the Cable Bolt
The anchorage of most cable bolts consists of a
wedge barrel and a 2- or 3-part wedge. The wedge
segments grip the cable by means of tooth shaped
threads which are forced into the surface of the
cable wires.
Warning: If friction increases (due to corrosion),
a larger F will reduce the clamping force. As V
increases all other forces can only increase if the
wedge can seat deeper into the barrel. If the wedge
is restrained to do so (i.e. by corrosion or dirt-
accumulation), the clamping force can not increase
with the pulling force causing slippage when the
load on the cable bolt gradually increases during
service life.
To avoid slippages during use, it is important that
the cable bolt is fully stressed at time of installation
to a force equal to 0.5 Fu. (i.e. 50% of the capacity
of the cable)
The clamping force W is highly dependent on
the friction between wedge and wedge hole. For
normal friction conditions, the clamping force W is
more than 4 times the cable pulling force V and it
adjusts with the pulling force V.
When a wedge is properly seated, radial cracks
may develop indicating adequate seating.
The wedge can be supplied with a rubber
O-ring or a metal spring ring holding the wedge
segments together.
