Double Acting System
Safety, Quality, Reliability
Double-Acting tools are built to provide SAFETY, QUALITY and RELIABILITY in every step of high pressure tool operation. In most cases, double-acting tools are lighter and more compact than comparable crimping and cutting equipment - insuring easier and safer use. This is especially important in compact working areas and hot stick use when every ounce of a tool's weight is felt by the operator.
The one-hand valve operation is safer and easier to use, leaving your other hand free to fontrol the tool head. Each valve has two pressure reliefs for extra safety: One to reduce the return cycle pressure to prevent damage to the tool; The second to protect against over pressurizing.
Each crimping head has a built-in-pressure reducing cavity to reduce the risk of personal injury from a high-pressure oil leak.
The REL-10-I Intensifier features a built-in pressure relief to fontrol system pressure build-up. Specifically, an unloading valve dumps the working pressure at 4,000 to 10,000 psi. An additional safety relief provides protection in case the unloading valve should fail.
All valves feature on-hand operation for extreme ease of use. They can be direct-coupled to the tool or, if you wish, attached with hoses for remote operation. In addition, they feature a built-in relief valve to limit tool return pressure and a ground dump safety valve to prevent over pressurizing in case the return hose becomes disconnected or plugged.
In many cases, double-acting crimping heads are significantly lighter than competitive models. Safety is designed-in as well. One example: a pressure reducing cavity is designed into each head to reduce the risk of personal injury from a high-pressure oil leak.
All Cutters are double-acting and available in capacities from ‡ in. to 4 in. Some models can handle a wide range of materials, including rebar, ACSR, guy strand, and bolts. Other safety features include hoses rated at four times the working pressure, and dielectrically safe hoses.
