A pair of Flange Spreaders are used to gently separate flanges for the replacement of the flange gasket or to reapply sealant on the flange face.
The spreader, which attaches to the flange bolt hole, spreads the flange faces without the risk of damage to the flange sealing surfaces. The wedge action spreads the gap between flanges up to 1 1/4" (32mm) and 100 ft-pounds of torque applied to the Flange Spreader yield up to 12,000 lbs of spreading force.
Hydraulic Flange Spreaders are available for 2"-36" (51-914mm) 150-600 pound (68-272 kg) flanges. The Hydraulic Kit, attached to the Hydraulic Flange Spreader, effortlessly separates the flanges.
• NO RISK—The Flange Spreader greatly reduces
the risk of damage to the flange face.
• SAFETY—Eliminates the need for wedges
