These hydraulic and mechanical wedge spreaders are for maintenance, commissioning, shutdowns, testing and valve change outs. As a benefit of using an integrated wedge concept, the spreaders provide Friction-free, smooth and parallel wedge movement which eliminates flange damage and spreading arm failure. The unique interlocking wedge design also means no first step bending and risk of slipping out of joint.
The spreaders require a very small access gap of only 6 mm. A stepped spreader arm design mean each step can spread under full load. Few moving parts mean durability and low maintenance.
