Historical approaches to working with heavy-duty threaded fasteners have aimed at sheer torque power, using long lever arms and heavy hammers on slugging wrenches. More recently, the hydraulic wrench has been viewed as the solution to many problems that require serious torque. But hydraulic wrenches are notorious for their heavy ratchets, bulky compressors and laborious operation. And they’re not cheap.
Technicians are finding that the best solution for applying torque power today is with a complete range of torque control tools that provide “continuous” torque, making it easier and often safer to assemble and service-threaded fasteners while reducing application problems and tool costs.
The pneumatic torque multipliers from Mountz, Inc. provide precision tightening and loosening of all heavy duty fastening connections. The torque multiplier shuts-off when pre-set torque is achieved. It’s a non-impacting and operates at a smooth, continuous rotation. The torque multiplier increases speed and productivity, as it is faster than a hydraulic wrench and is less expensive. The tool eliminates the cumbersome set up time and slow ratcheting process of hydraulic wrenches. The pneumatic torque multiplier is ergonomically safer than the harmful hammering of impact wrenches and eliminates the frequent costly repairs of impact wrenches.Pneumatic torque multipliers are a good example of continuous torque for heavy-duty use and are proven to achieve the correct torque values in a quicker, more cost-efficient manner.
Using Pneumatic Torque Multipliers for Bolting Applications
- Tighten bolts smoother & faster with precision
- Higher joint quality compared to impact or hydraulic wrenches
- Shuts-off when pre-set torque is achieved
- Precision tightening and loosening of all heavy duty fastening connections
- Ergonomically safer than impact wrenches
Using a quality torque multiplier 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 five-dollar bolt 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.
