Featured SureTork® Torque Wrench Reduces Wear in Pipeline RepairLowell Corporation
WEST BOYLSTON, MA September 28, 2020 – A featured torque wrench from Lowell Corporation solves a major issue facing pipeline labor: the improper tightening of nuts and bolts during installation. The SureTork wrench can greatly facilitate proper clamp installation by ensuring that nuts are always adequately torqued. And unlike other torque wrenches, the SureTork’s bolt-thru feature permits easy access to nuts on any threaded length.
When users improperly tighten nuts, repair clamps, service saddles, tapping sleeves, and mechanical joint couplings may fail prematurely. This error can result in service disruptions and expensive replacement. Failure due to improper installation may also void the manufacturer’s warranty adding additional expense.
The Lowell SureTork wrench is a click-type torque handle with a quick-release socket head that accepts Lowell’s standard or extended reach sockets. The tool is 20″ long, weighs 5 lbs with the head and one socket, and features 100% U.S. engineering and design.
Torque settings range from 30 to 150 lb-ft torque value with field-adjustable one lb-ft increments. Each handle comes with a serialized certificate of calibration.
Distributors sell these wrenches individually with one standard or extended reach socket. Sets are available with five ample reach hex sockets or six standard sockets (Hex or Square). Extended Hex socket sizes range from 7/8″ to 1-1/4″. Standard Hex socket sizes range from 5/8″ to 1-1/4″ and standard square sizes range from 5/8″ to 1-1/4″. Metric sockets are also available upon request.
Lowell Corporation guarantees the SureTork torque wrench against defects in material and craft for one year from date of delivery.
