Selecting a durable and reliable click wrench for a fastening application is an important decision. For field service and maintenance applications, the ability to quickly and accurately adjust the torque setting on the wrench is a critical element for any technician.
The EPT is an adjustable click wrench that provides different setting options for applications that require more than one torque value. The adjustable wrench features an external adjustment torque scale, which allows an operator to adjust the torque setting on the tool as needed. The EPT wrench offers an easy-to-read dual scale system (American & S.I.) with a laser marked scale along the body tube section of the wrench. The robust tool is ideal for field service, maintenance and production applications.
Designed with durable all-steel construction and a corrosion-resistant finish, these metal handle click wrenches are suitable for various industries like construction, automotive, chemical, nuclear, energy and other industrial environments. Click wrenches are the most widely used torque product in the world. When the set torque is reached, the tool typically emits a loud audible “click.” The operator can feel the impulse from the tool and most break about 3 degrees after the set torque is reached and then become positive. Proper use and training is required so that operators stop pulling the moment the click sound is heard or felt. Resetting of the tool takes place when the hand pressure is released. Work can then immediately continue on the next fastener.
The EPT click wrench features a lightly knurled non-slip grip. Designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the accuracy and repeatability requirements of ISO6789: 2003, Mountz offers various models covering a torque range from 6.2 – 750.6 foot-pounds.
Using a quality click wrench makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Controlling torque is essential for companies to ensure their product’s quality, safety and reliability isn’t compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn’t properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently fastened can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.
