Safer Bolting at Height: Enerpac Introduces DSX-Series Aluminum Square Drive Torque Wrenches
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (April 14, 2020) – Carrying out bolting operations at height runs the risk of danger to those working beneath dropped objects. Enerpac introduces a lightweight solution with industry-first patented safety features. The Enerpac DSX-Series Aluminum Square Drive Torque Wrenches round out the Enerpac portfolio with a safe, easy to use tool designed for medium duty use when working at height.
To help to reduce dropped-object incidents when working at height, the five models in the series feature a built-in connection point to safely tether the tool to a work belt or bag. A standard ergonomic safety handle also helps to prevent injuries or near misses from loss of tool. When it comes to operator protection, a fully enclosed drive prevents operator contact with moving parts inside the tool.
Made with a high-strength aluminum body, the Enerpac DSX-Series Aluminum Torque Wrenches are lightweight and easy to use—important factors when working at height. Another feature that makes the tool simple to use is a multi-direction 360 x 180° high flow aluminum swivel that helps prevent twisted and tangled hydraulic hoses. To help make operators more efficient on-site, the wrenches feature a fine-tooth ratchet that prevents the tool from locking on, a 35-degree rotation angle that assists with repetitive bolt tightening tasks, and a retained push-button quick release.
Additional key features include:
- Models from 3/4” to 2 1/2” Square Drive
- Torque output ranging from 141 to 24,057 ft.lbs (191-32.617 Nm)
- Compact nose radius for tight locations
- Long-stroke piston ensures a high degree of nut rotation; 35 degrees
- High-cycle design with fewer moving parts – more efficient to operate and maintain
- CE Approved
- ATEX Approved
- Tool accuracy +/- 3%
- Supplied with calibration certificate
The Enerpac DSX-Series Aluminum Square Drive Torque Wrenches are now available through Enerpac distributors.
