Gee-Force Hydraulics specialises in the sale and hire of hydraulic torque wrench equipment and other bolting equipment. We also sell and hire mechanical and hydraulic flange spreading and flange alignment equipment and we sell a wide range of other hydraulic tools and equipment.
An hydraulic torque wrench is designed to exert torque on a fastener to achieve proper tightening or loosening of a connection through the use of hydraulics. The wrench is applied to the nut either directly or in conjunction with an impact socket.
There are only a handful of suppliers in the UK from whom you can hire hydraulic torque wrench equipment. Gee-Force carries hire stocks of hydraulic torque wrench equipment at both its Burnley and Great Yarmouth premises.
In addition to hydraulic torque wrenches Gee-Force Hydraulics supplies both Pneutorque and RAD pneumatic torque wrenches. Not to be associated with pneumatic impact wrenches, today’s pneumatic torque wrenches offer speed and reliability.
A pneumatic torque wrench is a planetary torque multiplier or a gearbox that is mated to a pneumatic air motor. At the the end of the gearbox is a reaction device that is used to absorb the torque and allows the tool operator to use it with very little effort.
The pneumatic torque wrench is sometimes confused with a standard impact wrench because it looks similar, but is actually a totally different tool. A pneumatic torque wrench is driven by continuous gearing and not by the Hammers of an impacting wrench. This is why a pneumatic torque wrench has very little vibration and excellent repeatability and accuracy.
Complementary to our bolting equipment offering, Gee-Force Hydraulics also sells and hires flange alignment and flange spreading equipment by Equalizer International. These tools take the manpower and difficulty out of pipe flange spreading and alignment, dramatically improving both safety and speed for installation and maintenance applications.
As with the bolting equipment above there are just a handful of suppliers from whom you can hire flange spreading equipment and flange alignment equipment in the UK. These new tools represent essential requirements for initial installation although ongoing maintenance thereafter can usually be accommodated by more basic hydraulic tension tools thus keeping costs down.
Also available from Gee-Force Hydraulics on a hire or sale basis are hydraulic nut splitters by SPX Bolting Systems and Power Team.
The company also sells a wide range of hydraulic tools and equipment by Power Team including hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic pumps, high pressure hoses, high pressure fittings, shop maintenance equipment, hydraulic jacks and mechanical jacks, bearing maintenance tools and hydraulic pullers.
