Low profile hydraulic torque wrench cassette-type D-Flex

3D graphic of low-profile hydraulic torque wrench cassette type D-Flex.
Flexible design of the cassette-type hydraulic torque wrench: One cylinder unit runs up to 8 cassettes.
Reduced head radiuses - mateching ASME and MSS-SP standards

Key features at a glance

  • Flexible cassette-type hydraulic torque wrench: One  cylinder unit  of the hydraulic torque wrench can run up to 8 cassettes with different  A/F.
  • Quick change mechanism "QUICK-AND-GO" between cylinder and cassette allows for a quick and easy interchange by hand. There are no extra tools required  for the interchange! 
  • Compact and light-weight tool dimensions are  guaranteed by reduced head radiuses and  an extra low-profile design. This  allows for easy handling on sites.

Reduced D-Flex head radiuses are  beneficial for all bolting applications. Furthermore  the hydraulic torque wrench type D-Flex is designed to match pipe flange standards:

  1. ASME B16.5 (Pipe flanges, class 300 to class 2,500)
  2. MSS SP-44 (Steel pipe flanges, class 150 to 900).

Low-profile hydraulic torque wrenches type D-Flex can optionally be added with the ITH System ALPHA, which is a system for angle-controlled bolt tightening. Therefore and ALPHA  sensor unit (red casing in the picture) can be mounted on to the D-Flex easily.  The sensor unit is corresponds with the ALPHA control box at the ITH hydraulic pump unit, connected by a data wire.

Contact your local ITH representative for more  information about the angle-controlled bolt tightening method. We would be happy to provide support.

Reduced head radiuses of the cassette units of the hydraulic torque wrench are beneficial on all applications where space is limited.
Furthermore ITH hydraulic torque wrench type D-Flex design matches the following flange standards:
1. ASME B16.5 (Pipe flanges, class 300 to class 2,500)
2. MSS SP-44 (Steel pipe flanges, class 150 to 900)
In the picture above D-Flex 5 is applied on a steel flange model according to MSS SP-44 class 600 (ratio 1:1).

On-site ready, robust and flexible: ITH hydraulic torque wrench type D-Flex 5 tightens bolts of a steel construction of a ropeway, powered by an ITH pump unit Hydro-DAX 18. The remote allows for easy one-man operation. The dual-hose system offers high-speed bolting procedures.

Pictured above is a  main bearing to generator  bolt connection of a wind turbine. In this case there  is only a small distance from bolt center to bolt center (bolt spacing t), plus there is only a small distance from bolt center to the   component wall.

Because of  reduced  head radiuses  hydraulic torque wrench  type D-Flex  matches these kind of technical challenges.  By an "in-line" or direct support  the  hydraulic torque wrench reacts directly at the next bolt. This avoids bending effects  inside of the torque tool.

Reduced head radiuses
Reduced head radiuses

The reduced head radiuses of the cassette units allow the hydraulic torque wrench type D-Flex fit into smallest bolt spacings between 2 bolts. 

This is beneficial on all applications. Furthermore  the D-Flex matches the following flange standards:

  1.  ASME B16.5  (pipe flanges, class 300 to 2,500)
  2. MSS SP-44  (steel  pipe flanges, class 150 to  900)
Flexible support options
Flexible support options

Direct "in-line" support design avoids extra bending effects inside of the hydraulic torque wrench which is beneficial towards the positioning of the torque tool.  

Standardwise the D-Flex comes  with a  hardened support plate ("wear plate"). All support options which are shown above can be interchanged quickly and easily.

Easy and fast changing of the cassette units is provided by the quick change mechanism "CLICK AND GO". There are no extra tools required to change the cassettes!

  1. To remove the cylinder from the cassette just pull back the robust handle to unlock.
  2. To connect  cylinder and cassette just click-in both parts.
  3. No extra tools required.

Flexible design: cassette units

One  big benefit of the cassette-type hydraulic torque wrench is their modular and flexible design. One cylinder unit and run up to 8 different cassette units  with different A/F.

This guarantees  we can provide an optimal designed tool for your application.

Dual-hose TWIN swivel connector
