2 minute(s) to read

In this product training, we look at the key safety measures which need to be taken when using Hydraulic torque.

Learn about safety when using Hydraulic Torque

Hydraulic torque is one of the most popular methods of tightening big bolts. However, it can be very dangerous and entail a variety of risks if all the safety measures are not followed correctly. In this latest training, we look at precautions that need to be taken before completing the hydraulic torque process.

Hose connection and hoses

  • Ensure no change in position of couplers between advance and retract side of pump, hose and tool.
  • Tighten couplers with no gaps.
  • Check hoses for any cracks.
  •  Ensure the hoses are the ones specified for use. 

Tool preparation

  • Secure socket with pin and O Ring.
  • Ensure the reaction arm is fit correctly.
  • Careful not to drop any components when changing the direction of rotation.
  • Ensure you are using the correct size socket.

Securing back-up wrench

  • Always use a back-up wrench in place of a flogging spanner, which has a potential pinching risk.

Adjust pin orientation

  • Switch position of pin to ensure stable reaction point. 

Handling the wrench correctly

  •  Always handle the wrench by a handle.
  • Never hold the tool or pull the pump by the hoses.

Reaction point contact

  • Never use additional equipment to ensure contact at the reaction point. 

Releasing the wrench

  •  Never use a spanner or hammer to disengage.
  •  In case of the wrench getting stuck, follow the procedure of using the disengagement lever.
  •  If the wrench is stuck on a joint, always pressurize and use the disengagement lever.
