General Features of Zero Gap Flange Spreader SG18TE
Equalizer International SG18TE 18 Ton Zero Gap Inline Hydraulic Flange Spreader
Equalizer zero gap grip-holder mechanical flange spreader is clutch to connector bolt holes and spread flange joints. On this case there is no space on flange surface. This is why MG and SW series not using on zero gap flange types. (MG series requires 2 mm gap, SW series requires 6 mm gap.)
SG series are perfect for zero gap flange joints. SG18TE is do not damage to sealed surface of flange. Ideal for M60, M64 and M70 bolt connections.
How does it work ?
Equalizer SG Series grip-holder flange spreaders is used at zero-gap flange joints. Equalizer zero gap grip-holder mechanical flange spreader is clutch to connector bolt holes and spread flange joints.
