Durable WCR4000 slim torque wrenches set bench­marks for power, ac­ces­si­bil­ity and safety

A ruggedly en­gi­neered slim­line range of all-steel WCR-4000 Se­ries torque wrenches has been in­tro­duced by En­er­pac that of­fers more power, dura­bil­ity, ac­ces­si­bil­ity and safety than any com­pa­ra­ble tools of their size.

The WCR 4000 span­ner de­sign has been op­ti­mized to pro­vide the low­est ra­dial and span­ner thick­ness pos­si­ble yet still de­liver the rated torque re­quired to pro­vide bolt­ing pro­fes­sion­als with one of the most ver­sa­tile and high per­form­ing tools avail­able for limited ac­cess ap­pli­ca­tions, says En­er­pac.

As well as min­imis­ing down­time as­so­ci­ated with fail­ure of less durable com­pact de­signs, the WCR4000 se­ries en­hances ef­fi­ciency and min­imises fa­tigue and de­lay by eas­ily and safely ac­cess­ing tight spa­ces, in­clud­ing par­tic­u­larly API f langes com­monly used in sur­face drilling and pro­duc­tion pipe­lines and plant.

Avail­able with a wide range of ring type span­ners, the WCR en­hances safety by in­cor­po­rat­ing a Safe Fail Link de­sign in­cor­po­rat­ing a “me­chan­i­cal fuse” inside the cas­sette, which safe­guards against span­ner frag­men­ta­tion and as­so­ci­ated in­jury haz­ards oc­cur­ring out­side the cas­sette with other de­signs. This is a safety fea­ture not found in other roller cas­settes.

In­creased simplicity is achieved by the WCR4000 be­ing pow­ered by En­er­pac’s stan­dard W4000 drive unit, which al­lows the many cus­tomers who al­ready use En­er­pac low-pro­file tools to also use their ex­ist­ing W4000 drives on the new WCR4000.

The drive unit for new WCR4000 range is com­pat­i­ble with widely used En­er­pac stan­dard W se­ries hexag­o­nal cas­settes. The WCR4000 range joins En­er­pac’s wide range of non-im­pact pro­fes­sional bolt­ing and joint tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing the W low pro­file hexag­o­nal wrenches, S square drive wrenches, Z se­ries torque wrench pumps and com­ple­men­tary tech­nol­ogy such as the new ATM se­ries f lange align­ment tools that rec­tify twists and ro­ta­tional f lange mis­align­ment quickly and safely.

Fea­tures and ben­e­fits of the WCR4000 range in­clude:

The slim span­ner de­sign re­solves bolt-top­ipe re­stric­tions and re­duces bolt height re­stric­tions, pro­vides func­tion­al­ity on nearly any API f lange. WCR cas­settes do not ratchet. The tool moves around the out­side of the f lange (top left) as it torques the bolt. The span­ner is lifted and re­moved from the nut to re-stroke the tool on each cy­cle of the wrench. This de­sign al­lows con­trolled tight­en­ing in ap­pli­ca­tions where it would oth­er­wise not be pos­si­ble.

The Safe Fail Link span­ner de­sign in­cludes a me­chan­i­cal fuse inside the cas­sette, left, pro­vid­ing safer bolt­ing for op­er­a­tors and nearby work­ers. Its slim ring style pro­file, right,(30mm span­ner width) pro­vides the ul­ti­mate mix­ture of ver­sa­til­ity and dura­bil­ity, with AF sizes from 36-80mm (1-17/16” to 3-1/8”) .

The WCR4000’s solid steel tool body is ruggedly en­gi­neered for max­i­mum en­durance and min­i­mum down­time. For more in­for­ma­tion about En­er­pac equip­ment in New Zealand please con­tact Neville Stu­art on 021 667 716 neville@en­er­pac.co.nz www.en­er­pac.com
