The Equalizer™ Flange Closing Tool has been developed to pull flanges together during installation or maintenance. The FC10TE can be used on any flange with a bolt hole diameter of 22mm (7/8”) or greater.
The FC10TE has been designed utilizing tandem hydraulic cylinders to create a very low profile, this allows the FC10TE to be used on small diameter flanges with limited access as well as larger flanges. It is recommended that 2 tools are used as a minimum but the FC10TE can be used in greater multiples to achieve the pulling force required.
Usage: Commissioning, construction, routine maintenance, shutdowns/outages, subsea compatible.
Compatibility: all vertical and horizontal flanges including ANSI, API, BS, DIN & SPO.
