Tips for Servicing the Flex Power Pulse Tool
A pulse tool has the speed of an impact wrench with nearly the repeatability of a clutch based shut-off tool. Containing precision-machined parts the pulse unit is a sealed chamber that is filled with a formulated hydraulic fluid. Pulse blades with a custom designed precision roller push the fluid inside the rotating chamber generating hydraulic pressure that produces torque. Air power is the power source that spins the anvil and resistance against the fastener causes the pulse unit to activate.
The Flex Power pulse tool requires regular maintenance to ensure the tool operates at optimal performance. The type of routine maintenance and the frequency is dependent on the application and how the tool is used. The pulse tool requires preventive maintenance like oil changes and have the parts inspected periodically. Regular oil changes will increase the life cycle of the tool, reduce maintenance costs and allow the tool operate properly.
When is service required? There are several factors that influence the maintenance schedule:
1) Type of application
2) Torque testing the setting within the torque range of the pulse tool
3) The number of cycles the tool is used daily, weekly and monthly.
