Flange Spreaders


Flange Spreading . By using the latest technology Equalizer has designed Flange Spreaders for separating pipe flanges that are the leaders in the industry. The Equalizer mechanical flange spreaders and hydraulic flange spreaders are arguably the safest flange spreading tools available today. The new SWi series and the SW series flange spreader series combines a patented interlocking first step mechanism and deep step design for safe, secure, flange spreading. Our Secure Grip series of flange spreaders incorporates a patented collet technology that grips inside the bolt hole to deliver a measurable controlled force to separate flanges making them one of the safest spreaders available in the world today. The MG7TM Minigap is an excellent tool for use on smaller diameter, low pressure flanges.

Hammered flange wedges and flange splitters are a known safety problem causing injury to workers and damaging equipment. Hammered flange wedges and banana wedges can unexpectedly dislodge from the flange being separated, creating an unsafe condition, near miss, or industrial accident. Today, these tools are being replaced by mechanical flange spreaders and hydraulic flange spreaders to promote a safer more productive working environment.

Separating flanges without the proper tools can create an unsafe condition. Separating Flanges using splitters, flange wedges, pry bars, etc... can be unsafe and time consuming

Simplify your Flange Spreading problems with The Equalizer. Using the Equalizer Flange Spreading Tools makes spreading pipe flanges Safe, Fast, Easy, and Cost Effective

Safe, Easy, Cost Effective.

Mechanical flange spreaders are often simple to use, easy to maintain and can have a smaller foot print than there hydraulic flange spreader counterpart. From a cost perspective, these mechanical spreaders are generally the least expensive option to replace the hammer and wedge approach to flange work. Excellent tool for use on small to medium flanges with medium to low pressure ratings.
Hydraulic flange spreaders have a force advantage over mechanical flange spreaders and are the preferred tool for medium to large high pressure flanges. Increased productivity will usually offset the initial cost of these hydraulic spreaders.
Equalizer utilizes the newest technology on their mechanical and hydraulic flange spreaders. Our unique interlocking first step improves both safety, and productivity on the SW series. The expanding col let technology used on our SG series makes them the safest flange spreading tools available with additional improvements to productivity. Equalizer tools are safe, simple, reliable, easy to use and easy to maintain.

Flange Speader

This drawing illustrates how forces are applied with the Equalizer spreading wedge. The downward force from the wedge is transmitted in a perpendicular motion to the flange faces.

Flange Speader

This drawing illustrates how forces are applied with a standard wedge. The downward force from the wedge is transmitted in a angular motion to the flange faces. This generates a reverse force that try to propel the wedge back out of the flange. This may present an unsafe working condition and will also cause damage to flange face.

EXTREME CAUTION SHOUD BE EXERCISED WHEN USING THIS METHOD OF FLANGE SPREADING.
