Enerpac Hydraulic Torque Wrenches to achieve proper tightening or loosening. - Now for Sale or Rent from WB Equipment

The main characteristics of a hydraulic torque wrench which set it apart from other powered wrenches of similar function are that it must generate torque using only hydraulic means it must be self ratcheting, and it must include an accurate method of determining the amount of torque applied.

In 1985, the Bolt Council : Research Council on Structural Connections, aka RCSC, specification permitted the use of the calibrated wrench method of installation, but with a clearer statement of the requirements of the method and its limitations.

In the calibrated wrench method the wrench is calibrated or adjusted to shut off when the desired torque is reached. In practice, several bolts of the lot to be installed are tightened in a calibrating device that directly reads the tension in the bolt. The wrench is adjusted to shut off at bolt tensions that are a minimum of 5% greater than the required preload.

Some manufacturers utilize a holding pawl design to keep the wrench locked in position prior to each power stroke, others use varying designs, which as in all industries have debatable faults or claimed advantages.

Hydraulic torque wrenches typically offer accuracy of ±3% and have a high degree of repeatability making them well suited to applications where large bolts are involved and a high degree of accuracy is required.

A hydraulic torque wrench is significantly quieter, lighter weight and more accurate than pneumatic impact wrenches capable of similar torque output, making it an appealing alternative for many users to the very loud and cumbersome impact wrenches or torque multipliers which were formerly the only viable option for working with very large nuts and bolts until the hydraulic torque wrench was introduced.

Bolt tensioners are an alternative to hydraulic torque wrenches, but, not as commonly used.

Hydraulic Jacks

Custom hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic jacks made to order. Huge inventory readily available. With loads from 1 – 2,000 tons and pressure rating of 100 – I0,000 psi we can make any hydraulic cylinder or hydraulic jack to your exact requirements. Whether it be single acting, double acting, lockout or centerhole let us provide you with the right jacking system to perform your task.

Hydraulic Pumps

Custom power units and hydraulic pumps made to order. Electric, Gas, Diesel or Air Operated power units. Flow rates range from 1 GPM to 100 GPM. Our hydraulic pumps are available in over 1000 different configurations. They have a pressure rating of 10,000 psi.

Flat Jacks

Freyssi Flat Jacks are simple, practical devices for the civil or structural engineer wherever the application or control of large forces is required. Flat jacks are frequently used in the solution of unforeseen problems such as in remedial measures or structural additions.

Synchronous Lifting Systems

The sensor extension is different from the Cylinder stroke value. The sensor extension is hooked to the load, and it has a value even when the Cylinder is collapsed. The potential applications of this system are numerous synchronized lifting levering, pushing, pulling and positioning using computer technology.of a synchronous lifting system 

Load Cells

The Model 3000 Load Cell is made from an annulus of high-strength steel or aluminum, with electrical resistance strain gages in a Wheatstone Bridge configuration. The load cell is designed primarily for use on tiebacks and rockbolts, although they may be used during pile load tests and for monitoring loads in crosslot struts and tunnel supports, etc. In most cases, the load cells are used in conjunction with a hydraulic jack and bearing plates.

Monostrand Stressing Jacks

Power Team Monostrand Stressing Jacks are the most durable in the industry.

Monostrand Stressing Jacks suited for work on slab-on-grade where dirt, heat and high volume use take their toll.

Stressing jacks are mainly used on construction sites for stressing mono-strand anchors, and for the separate stressing of the strands of multistrand tendons.

Jacking Systems

We can provide customized jacking equipment to test driven piles from 1 -2000 tons. The systems can be manually, electrically or automatically controlled.

WB Equipment has delivered components for multiple jacking systems. Our knowledge of structural design, hydraulics, and automation means that we are capable of designing a complete jacking system with controls that allow for fully automated jacking and monitoring.

Hydraulic Torque Wrenches

A hydraulic torque wrench is a power tool designed to exert torque on a fastener to achieve proper tightening or loosening of a connection through the use of hydraulics. A torque wrench is applied to the nut either directly or in conjunction with an impact socket. Hydraulic torque wrenches apply a predetermined, controlled amount of torque to a properly lubricated fastener.

Strand Jacks

strand jack (also known as strandjack) is a jack used to lift very heavy (e.g. thousands tons or more with multiple jacks) loads for construction and engineering purposes.

Strand jacks can be used horizontally for pulling objects and structures, and are widely used in the oil and gas industry for skidded loadouts. Oil rigs of 38000 tons have been moved in this way from the place of construction on to a barge. Since multiple jacks can be operated simultaneously by hydraulic controllers, they can be used in tandem to lift very large loads of thousands of tons. Even the tandem use of two cranes is very difficult operation.

Hydraulic Presses

The hydraulic press depends on Pascal’s principle: the pressure throughout a closed system is constant. One part of the system is a piston acting as a pump, with a modest mechanical force acting on a small cross-sectional area; the other part is a piston with a larger area which generates a correspondingly large mechanical force. Only small-diameter tubing (which more easily resists pressure) is needed if the pump is separated from the press cylinder.

Custom Center-Hole Cylinders

Custom made cylinders made to your specifications. All cylinders calibrated and traceable back to NIST. Centerhole,  locknut,  low height, single acting,  double acting,  long stroke.

  • 0-1500 tons
  • Centerhole sizes .75 inch to 15 inches
  • Stroke ½ inch to 10 feet

Rebar Grips

Quick acting re-bar grips are available for pull out testing of reinforcing bars in concrete, (re-bar/reinforcement bars) used in construction of highways, bridges, and tunnels as well as rigging and other applications.

When used with hydraulic jack, user slips jack and grip over grouted re-bar and applies pressure to load. These re-bar grips come in sizes No. 4-18 and accommodate construction industry’s focus on repair, maintenance, and building of public infrastructure.

MECHANICAL JACKS

A jack, screwjack or jackscrew is a mechanical device used as a lifting device to lift heavy loads or to apply great forces. A mechanical jack employs a screw thread for lifting heavy equipment.

 

Hydraulic & Mechanical Flange Spreaders

Integrated wedge concept: friction-free, smooth, parallel wedge movememtn eliminates flange damage and spreading arm failure

Unique interlocking wedge design: no first step bending and risk of slipping out of joint

Requires very small access gap of only .24 in. (6mm)

Stepped spreader arm design: each step can spread under full load and few moving parts means durability and low maintenance

Safety block SB1 and ratchet spanner SW22 included

Custom hydraulic systems designed to raise or lower any type of structure.
