Improved Double Socket Wrench Set Has Combinations for Multiple JobsLowell Corporation
WEST BOYLSTON, MA October 5, 2020 – Lowell Corporation has introduced a new double socket wrench set for water, wastewater, pipeline, and underground electrical utilities. The hand tools are available individually or in a three-piece set with a durable plastic carrying case.
Each wrench has a different socket combination.
- Wrench #1 has a 1-1/4″ x1-1/16″ hex socket. Applications include turning 3/4′ and 5/8″ heavy hex bolts used in mechanical joint fittings up to 24″ diameter, cast couplings, clamps, and tapping sleeves/
- Wrench #2 has a 1-1/8″ x 15/16″ hex socket for turning standard hex flange bolts.
- Wrench #3 has a 7/8″ x 3/4″ hex socket. Applications include turning 1/2″ heavy hex bolts, 1-1/2″ through 12″ Hymax® couplings, and 1-1/2 “-24” MaxFit™ couplings.
Each valve wrench is 12″ long and has Lowell’s Bolt-Thru feature, which lets workers tighten nuts on long bolts and any threaded rod length. This action eliminates the need for an open-end or deep socket wrench. Each wrench also has a vinyl grip, which reduces fatigue. This upgrade makes these tools more comfortable and secure. The grips are color-coded to make wrench identification easier in murky conditions such as a ditch or the back of a service vehicle. The wrenches simplify heavy use. Handles and sockets have heavy-duty construction with electrostatic epoxy paint for durability and easy cleaning. Ratchets feature a reversing control located in each wrench’s head to safely and conveniently reverse the action, with semi-enclosed ratchets to minimize fouling. Each tool has a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and craft.
