An Engineer's Hydraulic Torque Wrench - Rugged, Reliable, and Versatile
Tentec's SD Series of torque wrenches (http://www.tentec.net/sd-overview.php) is an innovative range of square drive hydraulic torque wrenches, packed full of features that makes them the ideal choice for a host of engineering applications. With ergonomically designed one piece body housing, the wrenches not only offer rigidity, strength and robustness for even the most challenging of tasks, but they are also lightweight for ease of use and reduced operator fatigue.
With torque output ranging from 1722N.m (1270Ft.lbs) to an impressive 78625N.m (580000ft.lbs), a huge selection of alternative optional reaction arms can be specified, guaranteeing a reaction point solution, no matter how unusual the bolted application. The versatility of the SD Series is further enhanced by the fact that the arms can be quickly and easily changed by pressing a sturdy and protected release button.
Other notable features of the SD Series include a "push through" square drive to easily switch from loosen to tighten, an anti-backlash mechanism that allows hands free operation and a replaceable wear pad that protects the reaction arm
Not only is the SD Series a strong workhorse of a wrench, it also offers refined features that ensure engineers throughout the world have a tool that is convenient and easy to use. Among the many features are full 360° x 360° swivel connections and a pressure/torque chart that is laser etched onto the nose of the tool, so avoiding the need for carrying paper pressure charts.
All Tentec torque wrenches can be used with the Tentec BTS (Bolt Tightening Software) The software saves engineers both time and money by allowing documentation for multiple bolted joint projects to be created quickly and efficiently and has the additional advantage that engineers can avoid the possibility of error that often occur with manual torque calculations.
