Flange Spreader

Flange spreading tools, also known as pipe flange spreaders or flange splitters are available in a range of styles and configurations to assist in the spreading of all pipe flange joint types including those with no access gaps between them. Hydraulic models are remotely operated (requiring hand or powered pump to operate), integral (pump integrated into design) or mechanical. Wedge type spreaders and secure grip spreaders are the main styles we offer for a wide range of pipe flange sizes. Need assistance? Refer to the bottom of the page for the FLANGE GURU link.
