Our Zero Gap Flange Spreaders lineup starts with the Equalizer SG Series which deals with flange spreaders that lock into the flanged bolt-holes instead of prying flanges apart with a wedge. The “SG” stands for secure-grip and the SG line of flange spreader tools are particularly useful in flanged scenarios without a gap. The SG4TM, SG6TM and the SG11TM are the 3 mechanical sizes and can create 4, 6, and 11 Tons of force respectively. The SG13TE and the SG15TE appear similar to the mechanical tools but are actuated with a hydraulic cylinder and external hydraulic hand pump. The final 2 tools that make up the SG series are the SG18TE and the SG25TE. These tools are known as the “in-line” models in that they reach across the flange gap to the same bolt hole on the opposite flange. By locking into each bolt hole they are able to push away from each other to create spread.
SMP’s Zero Gap Valve-Out Tool is a bolt-hole specific tool. With the Valve-Out Tool valve spreader you can eliminate the need for come-alongs, track-hoes, wire rope, chains, hammers and wedges.
And the Zero Gap 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.
