Tentec Launch a New Range of Innovative Hydraulic Torque Wrenches
Wednesday, May 5th, 2010
Tentec, a global supplier of bolt tensioning equipment has launched a new series of hydraulic and pneumatic torque wrenches to complement their existing range of bolt tightening solutions.
Three new torque wrench ranges have been introduced. The SD, CD and PN series have been developed for engineers worldwide who require robust, easy to use and accurate tools for the vast range of torque applications throughout industry.
The innovative SD Series comprises square drive conventional hydraulic torque wrenches. With torque output ranging from 1722N.m (1270Ft.lbs) to an impressive 78625N.m (580000ft.lbs), the one-piece body housing also offers rigidity, strength and robustness in a surprisingly lightweight form.
Not only is the SD Series a strong workhorse of a wrench, it also offers refined features that ensure engineers throughout the world have a tool that is convenient and easy to use. Among the many features are full 360° x 360° swivel connections and a pressure/torque chart that is laser etched onto the nose of the tool.
For awkward restricted bolts, the low profile, direct drive CD-Series of hydraulic torque wrenches would be the tools of choice. Design engineers have achieved the ultra slim profile of the “same width” cassette and cylinder assembly by incorporating a unique non circular drive piston.
The CD series interchangeable cassettes allow for a rapid and easy swap out from one hex size to another. The cassette is attached to the cylinder by means of a single high strength locking pin, so no special tools are required for change out. The use of interchangeable cassettes makes the CD series a very versatile wrench, with one cylinder being able to torque many different sized hexagon nuts. Both cylinder and cassette are manufactured from high grade, high strength aircraft alloy giving the CD series unparalleled reliability.
The PN series of pneumatic torque wrenches completes the new range of tools from Tentec. The PN series provides continuous and repeatable torque with an accuracy of +/- 5%. Unlike previous pneumatic torque wrenches, the PN series has the fastest speed when it counts, which is during the actual torque stage and not during the free nut run down stage.
Common in all PN Series wrenches is a new gear technology that creates greater durability, lower operational temperatures and increased efficiency. The PN series offer a torque output from 162 N.m (120 ft.lbs) to 8134 N.m (6,000 ft.lbs) and rotational speeds of up to 45 rpm.
Tentec offers suitable and compatible electric and air driven pump units to power the new torque ranges.
Tentec also supply a free bolt tightening software package that integrates with both their Torque and Tension products.
