Torq/Lite Riser Tools were introduced in 1997 and offered a more efficient way to make up and break out riser bolts.
With a high-speed rundown motor and a high-output cylinder working alongside each other, the RT Series can help you get the job done faster. Since the tool automatically shifts from running the bolt down to torquing it without any additional switches or levers, the operation also becomes much safer.
They are fast, safe, reliable, and extremely accurate - everything you need a riser wrench to be.
The riser tools make up or break out a riser bolt in seconds. This greatly reduces the time that the wrenches are operating during the bolting process and saves you money.
With a maximum torque capacity of 38,000 ft./lbs., you can be sure your bolts are secure and are able to be broken out safely when that time comes.
The RT Series has three different reaction bar systems designed specifically for different types of riser. Whatever you're using, we can fit our tools on it.
Because they shift automatically from rundown mode to torquing mode, you can operate the riser tools completely hand-free after they are positioned on the bolt.
The 2.5-inch square drive can be used with a variety of standard or custom impact sockets and switches easily back and forth between make-up and break-out modes.
Available with dual-control consoles, sockets, and overhead spring balancers that can be used to reduce the weight of the tool to as little as one pound.
Torq/Lite’s RT-S Series riser tool is a hydraulic speed/torque wrench combination, designed for use during make-up or break-out of Shaffer FT-H and FT-G sub-sea riser bolted flanges. With the push of a hand-held button, the RT Series riser tool spins the nut down at high speed and then automatically completes the torque to a preset limit via the ratcheting mechanism when making up. When breaking out the tool does the exact opposite, using the ratcheting operation to break the nut loose and then spinning it out at high speed. The RT-24S and RT-40S, specially designed to fit FT-H and FT-G bolted riser, fit seamlessly amongst all bolts and lines associated with the application.
RT/S SERIES ACCESSORIES
Custom-built, aluminum dual-control conversion console, utilizes rig hydraulics up to 3,000 p.s.i. and provides continuous volume of hydraulic fluid required to independently operate two riser tools simultaneously.
By using the overhead spring balancers, you can virtually eliminate the weight of riser tool, which reduces operator fatigue and increases efficiency of operation. The balancers are adjustable so that you can use them to your specifications.
All riser tool packages include a divided and compartmentalized aluminum container for storage and submerging of riser tools with self-standing lockable lids.
