Selecting the Proper Torque Multiplier



In nearly every heavy industrial application, turning threaded fasteners, nuts and bolts is generally viewed by two criteria: (1) The need to fasten tightly enough to prevent movement of parts and achieve a good seal without exceeding the fastener's elasticity level. (2) Successful removal of fasteners after long periods of environmental exposure to harsh conditions.

Selecting the right heavy torque tool for the job is crucial. When it comes to turning nuts and bolts, especially stubborn corroded ones, what could be more basic than power?

You need controlled power. That is, "controlled torque," which provides smooth torque, with continuous rotation. Otherwise, you could outdo yourself and strip threads, break bolt heads or even cause personal injury.

Technicians are finding that the best solution for applying high torque today is with a complete range of torque control products, including manual and powered torque wrenches and torque multipliers. Mountz torque multipliers provide precision torque control, making it easier and often safer to assemble and service-threaded fasteners while reducing application problems and tool costs.

Mountz Torque Multipliers vs. Hydraulics Wrenches -
Hydraulic wrenches are notorious for their heavy ratchets, bulky compressors and laborious operation. Hydraulic tools operate through a hydraulic ram that extends and retracts, ratcheting the head. This is a long and tedious process that requires the operator to activate and stand by the pump with a hand-held controller. Torque Multipliers increase speed and productivity, as it is faster than a hydraulic wrench and is less expensive. Designed to deliver smooth torque control, with "continuous" rotation, these torque multipliers eliminate the cumbersome set up time and slow ratcheting process of hydraulic wrenches.

Mountz Torque Multipliers vs. Impact Wrenches -
Impact wrenches are destructive by nature with its "hammering" design. These tools are not ergonomically friendly to an operator and require a high maintenance budget. Mountz torque multipliers are ergonomically safer than the harmful hammering of impact wrenches and eliminates frequently costly repairs of impact wrenches.

Mountz Eliminator Torque Multipliers are available in hand, pneumatic and electric models. These tools are the ideal solution for true torque control, speed, power, physical ease, silence and safety.
