Equalizer Flange Maintenance Tools Bring Powerful Solutions to Enerpac Bolting Product Line Customers

Menomonee Falls, WI—March 25th, 2019—Equalizer International has officially became a part of the Enerpac family. This new addition to Enerpac’s bolting product line includes a wider range of high-quality flange maintenance tools. By joining forces with Enerpac, the award-winning Equalizer portfolio is now even more accessible than before. 

Enerpac’s new line of Equalizer-branded tools provides a safe, cost-effective method of maintaining flange joints. The innovative product range includes flange spreaders, flange alignment and pulling tools, and nut splitters, together with a series of hand pumps. The Equalizer brand also offers valve change-out tool sets, which have been developed to assist in the removal of wafer/butterfly valves, spades/spacers or gaskets from large flange joints.

Equalizer spreaders use mechanical and hydraulic actuation for separating small, medium or large flange joints with a minimum access gap of 2 mm. “The flange pullers are simple, lightweight hydraulic tools used to pull together flanges prior to the application of bolts,” said Eduardo Castaneda, Senior Sales Manager at Equalizer. “This allows the tools to be used on small-diameter flanges with limited access as well as larger flanges. Equalizer flange alignment tools are used to align or re-align flange joints during pipework construction, commissioning or during routine maintenance.”

Equalizer serves a broad array of markets including oil & gas, nuclear, renewable and non-renewable power generation as well as mining and petrochemical. “Our customers will significantly benefit from this expanded tool offering,” said Eduardo Castaneda. “They will also be able to leverage Enerpac’s broader product and services portfolio. Additionally, they will have enhanced application support from professionals that will be able to solve problems faster.”
