Safety, accuracy and speed are paramount at HYTORC. The TPF reaction arm, where support is provided through a standard socket placed on an adjacent bolt head, is the result thereof.
Adjustable to the distance between the bolts.
Safe: because both sockets are placed over or in the bolt heads. The probability of the operator becoming entrapped between reaction arm and support point is eliminated.
Accurate: the accuracy of the bolt load achieved is increased when braced on a point further away from the torqued bolt. The bigger the distance, the bigger the positieve effect. Maintenance and wear also decrease as the reaction point moves further away, because the side load decreases and the stress on the wrench is reduced.
No damage: no damage to expensive coatings or the finished surface of your system components; support is gained from the neighbour bolt and not the flange, housing or pipe wall.
