Using the integrated wedge concept, the SPX Hydraulic Spreader is designed to open flanges across the oil, gas, petrochemical and chemical processing industries, as well as water treatment and distribution.
It can also be used to separate parts on engines, gearboxes, pumps, compressors and plated heat exchangers, as well as position precisely heavy equipment and initiate lifting operations from underneath equipment where there is little initial space between the load to be raised and the ground.
The SPX Hydraulic Spreader has a very small closed nose thickness (5.5 to 35 mm) which allows it to treat flanges with narrow gaps. Due to its lightweight, compact design and multiple positions available, the hydraulic spreader is manoeuvrable and easy to use.
