Flange spreaders are equipment for separating large industrial machines, which are divided into integrated hydraulic flange spreaders and split flange spreaders. It is mainly used for pipeline maintenance, pipeline construction, testing and replacement of flanges, maintenance gaskets, pressure vessels, cylinder head opening, power plants, bearing disassembly, oil-electric drilling, motor rotor disassembly, offshore platforms, jacking work, shipbuilding, industrial equipment, horizontal movement of workpieces and other industries.

Classification and advantages

Mechanical Flange spreader, Integrated Hydraulic Flange spreader, Split Flange spreader

(1) Mechanical flange spreader

Parameters and Features
●Step-by-step design, equipped with safety pads and step-by-step pads
● The joystick and handle can be rotated 360°
During operation, the spreader is close to the flange surface to ensure that it will not expand too much, and it is manually returned when it is closed.
● Each set of spreaders includes two working heads, two step-increasing blocks, two spacers, two ratchet wrenches, and comes with a light work box

Ventaja
1. Large separation force and light body
2. Increase the separation amount and reduce the depth of the wedge block inserted into the flange
3. Can be used as a jack
4. Overcome space constraints
5. Prevent flange dislocation while separating
6. No friction, parallel, smooth movement, no flange damage
7. Two options of mechanical and hydraulic

(2) Integrated hydraulic flange spreader

Parameters and Features
● The minimum separation gap is only 6mm
● The maximum separation amount is 65mm
● Radius of 150mm arc steps can be effectively close to the flange, so that each step can bear a larger load
● Forged alloy steel separation step, longer life
● Lightweight reinforced plastic steel handle design, easy to carry
● The unique internal locking mechanism ensures that the separation piece is close to the flange when it is opened, and will not expand too much, and it automatically returns when it is closed.
● One-piece design, no need to connect oil pipe, more convenient to use

Ventaja
1. The spring return cylinder, pump and spreader are integrated into one
2. It only needs 6mm to operate, and each step is separated by 25mm.
3. Automatic retraction when closed
4. No radial force and no extrusion
5. The maximum pressure is 10000PSI, and the overpressure is returned to the oil
6. Overcome space constraints
7. Prevent flange dislocation while separating
8. Large separation force and light body
9. Increase the separation amount and reduce the depth of the wedge block inserted into the flange
10. Can be used as a jack

(3) Split hydraulic flange spreader

Parameters and Features
● The maximum separation force is 2*14 tons
● The minimum separation gap is only 6mm
● The maximum separation amount is 65mm
● Radius of 150mm arc steps can be effectively close to the flange, so that each step can bear a larger load
● Forged alloy steel separation step, longer life
● Lightweight reinforced plastic steel handle design, easy to carry
● The unique internal locking mechanism ensures that the separation piece is close to the flange when it is opened, and will not expand too much, and it automatically returns when it is closed.
