The Equalizer™ SWi Innovative Range of Flange Spreading Wedges have been developed to assist in the spreading of all flange joint types with a minimum access gap of 6.0mm (0.25"). The tools can be used during pipework construction, commissioning or during routine maintenance. The SWi Innovative Range of Flange Spreaders have less moving parts and no finger pinch points. The tools have been developed to increase the spreading distance on each step while gaining easier access between any remaining stud-bolts within the flange joint. The tools provide a much higher spreading force to the existing SW flange spreading tools. The SWi tools are supplied with a swivel handle, safety lanyard and stepped block attachment as standard.

Equalizer International is a newly developed flange separation equipment according to the needs of the oil and gas companies. This new product brings many improvements to both the capacity and ease of use. Brand new SWi series provides strength and lighter weight and more capacity. Equalizer SWi20/25TI hydraulic separator works with an external flange 700 bar hydraulic pump. It is easier to use in tight spaces via external pump flange separation equipment. Hydraulic Flange Spreader is an ideal product for hard-working areas. The product can be used by one worker. Contraction is prevented in one direction of the flange with the two equipments.
6 mm Flange Space is Enough for SWi20/25TI
6 mm gap is enough to start processing. Flange connections can be opened with the use of both stepped blocks up to 103,5 mm. This distance is good for the necessary repair and maintenance process. Equalizer SWi20/25TI external pump hydraulic flange spreader can be used in natural gas plants, oil refineries, water and chemical production lines. Allows the assembly process to be completed quickly and safely. Saves labor time. Reduces costs. Flange connection is indispensable for mounting and dismounting equipment.
Equalizer Flange Spreader Technology
Flange equipment has been developed as a result of intensive research and development.Flange spreader has been developed in cooperation with the oil companies. (BP, Total, Shell, Esso and many more.) Flange spreading process is starting with 90° angle.Spreading-pushing force is applied directly to the flange surface and allows the opening of the flange without contraction. Sealing is never damaged. This specific feature is only provided by Equalizer Flange Spreading Technology.
Standard Flange Spreading Method
Standard flange spreading technology systems is in the system is slightly different. In this system, the separation force can't be applied at right angles. Spreading force will damage the flange surface thus sealing deteriorates. Deformed flanges become unusable after a while. This is why 90 degree working angle is very important for flanges.
