Safer than a hammer.
Torq/Lite's HU Series hydraulic wrenches are designed specifically for Hammer Union connections. With only two different tool models, the HU Series can fit all registered Hammer Union connections, eliminating the need for an unsafe hammer. With easy-to-latch heads and interchangeable jaws, the HU Series wrenches are versatile and effortlessly applied to or removed from a connection.
The safety increases exponentially when you remove a hammer from a situation and add a tool that does not require a dangerous swinging motion to operate.
Once the tool is applied to the Hammer Union connection, the operator does not need to use his hands to hold the tool in place. Additionally, the tool has an optional handle that can be attached, so that if the operator so chooses, he can hold the tool safely.
Adjustable Reaction Arm
The adjustable reaction arm allows the HU Series to fit all registered Hammer Union connections with only two different tool models.
The head features the same patented open-gate design as Torq/Lite’s JN Series wrenches, but has a spring-latch feature that makes applying and removing the tool very simple.
The HU Series uses jaws inside the head to clamp to the application and turn it as it advances. These jaws are interchangeable and different sizes can be applied to the same head, allowing a user much more range from one tool, and resulting in cost savings over time.
Throughout their lifespan, the Hammer Union lugs can take a lot of beatings – literally. The HU Series reduces the impact on those lugs, saving replacement time and costs.
Since the operator is not striking a hammer, the load is able to be applied to the connection in a stable, constant, and controlled manner.
Reduces Operator Fatigue
Swinging at a hammer is not only dangerous, it is exhausting. The HU Series saves the shoulders of the operators, keeping them safe, and making them more productive.
