FLS15 & FLS15-ST hydraulic flange spreaders are ideal for pipe and flange repair. They can also be used for removing elbows, gasket and metal seal replacement on couplers, heavy equipment maintenance, and many other tasks. The hydraulic flange spreaders are capable of developing up to 15 metric tons of force, are lightweight (only 7 lbs. [3.2 kg]), and easy to use due to their ergonomic design.
This hydraulic flange spreader operates using the integrated wedge concept. It is ideal for creating space for flange surface cleaning and repair, and for gasket replacement. The spreader is single acting, and should be used with a hydraulic pump capable of holding pressure. Maximum operating pressure is 10,000 psi (700 bar).
Maximum 33,000 pounds (15 metric tons) per tool at 10,000 psi (700 bar). It is recommended that the tools be used in pairs, providing a maximum combined force of 66,000 pounds (30 metric tons).
