What is a Flange Spreader and How Does it Work?
A flange spreader, or a flange separator as it is sometimes called, is an industrial tool that is designed to help open up or separate flanges. Flanges are commonly found on pipes, used to either connect them together or as a cap to cover or close them up. The gas, oil, and plumbing industries have just some of the many workers that rely upon flanges.
Over time, flanges can rust or corrode. This makes it difficult for technicians to make repairs or conduct any work inside the pipes, as they are unable to open the flanges. The spreader or separator tool helps to expand and separate problem flanges by working into the gaps using a hydraulic-jacking system until they open up.
We, at Torq/Lite, create and manufacture a number of torquing and hydraulic-powered tools, including spreaders and separators for flanges. Visit our website to browse our current inventory of products and find the right tool for your next project.
What is the Price of a Flange Spreader?
When shopping for a spreader or separator that is designed for flanges, you can expect to encounter a variety of prices. Prices depend on a number of factors, such as the system setup and the size.
The biggest influencing factor that determines the price of the tool is the size. Larger spreaders or separators will cost more than smaller units. This is usually because it takes a more powerful system to work the larger tools than it does to work the smaller tools.
