Hydraulic spreading tools were developed to assist in the spreading of all flange joint types, or any industrial equipment, including those with no access gaps between them. These tools are designed to reduce the risk of injury to workers and equipment, providing quicker and safer solutions, than using traditional practices. Primarily used in flange maintenance, valve change-outs, commisioning, de-commisioning, testing and other applications. Models can be supplied as mechanical, integral (integrated hydraulics) or remote head (driven by manual or powered pump).
Alternate terminology: Hydraulic Spreading Tools, Hydraulically Powered Spreading Equipment, Hydraulic Spreading Kits.
