Product description of the Hydraulic Torque Wrench type CX

All ITH Hydraulic Torque Wrenches function according to the torque method, optionally to the torque-angle method.

Application
The hydraulic torque wrenches type CX fit into radially limited spaces. For applications with varying reaction points the reaction arm can be easily adjusted, no extra parts or tools required. The dual-hose and TWIN-swivel connection offers various options to position the hydraulic hoses and fast operation with the ITH hydraulic pumps type DAX.

Features and layout
The high degree of adjustment possible with the reaction arm allows for positioning to get the best leverage on each bolt. The fine-tooth socket of the patented ratchet system guarantees a steady transfer of torque. The TWIN-swivel connection and dual-hose system offers a high amount of flexibility in tight places. The TWIN-swivel connection offers various options to position the hydraulic hoses. The component design (hydraulic cylinder, ratchet system, housing, and reaction arm) allows for quick replacement of worn parts.

Universal inserts: existing inserts and nuts can be used
Extensive application options are offered by use of inserts types CX-VE, CX-KSE, and CX-SE. Existing square drive sockets can be used with insert type CX-VE.

  Overview all socket types here.

Compatibility
Hydraulic torque wrenches type CX can be used with all ITH Hydraulic pumps type DAX. The high-flow couplers attribute to fast operating speed.
