The SMP Side Winder is the only flange spreader designed specifically to spread lap joint flanges, slip on flanges and all other styles of flat faced flanges.

The Side Winder attaches to the pipe on either side of the flanges with chain clamps and is operated by turning the main drive screw inside the pipe spreader tube. The SMP Side Winder creates up to 5,000 pounds of spread force and fits all flange styles with pipe diameters 2” through 18”. The SMP Side Winder comes in 2 different operating spans 5” through 30” and 5” through 42” each with 2 size models.
