Enerpac is introducing to Australia, New Zealand and PNG a new compact, portable and powerful air-powered torque wrench pump for high productivity in hard-to-access locations.
Weighing in at around 18 kg with oil, the Enerpac LAT Air Hydraulic Torque Wrench Pump is easy to lift, transport and manoeuvre, according to the company.
The pump comes with an integrated carry handle and can be carried by a single operator up stairs when a crane, hoist or elevator is not available. “It is easy to manoeuvre in narrow and constrained spaces such as scaffolding, catwalks, pipe racks and lifts,” the company said.
Enerpac Product and Channel Leader, Andrew Marsh, said: “The new LAT pumps are ideal for high repetition torque wrench applications that need air power, such as oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation and mining, but have limited access, so a larger pump would not be practical or efficient.”
The new Enerpac LAT-Series Air Hydraulic Torque Wrench Pump features an Enerpac piston design, reinforced Filter Regulator Lubricator (FRL) support and air supply connection, designed to provide years of reliable service with fastening and break out speeds to keep jobs on schedule and on budget, the company said.
“The LAT pump has best-in-class, flow-to-weight performance,” Marsh said. “Its industry-proven air motor and three-piston design enable operators to complete their hydraulic torque wrench applications faster, while always ensuring top levels of safety.”
The durable, reliable new pumps are designed and tested for use in tough environments, Enerpac says. The roll cage protects key components and provides increased support and protection of the FRL from vibration. The heavy-duty air supply connection and proven piston design enables long life, the company added. Key components are easy to access for service and a skid rail accessory prevents reservoir wear from rough surfaces.
Mining applications include conveyor system maintenance tasks associated with inspecting the electric motor and gear box, the company said.
The ATEX-certified Enerpac LAT Air Hydraulic Torque Wrench Pump is optimised for use with the newly introduced Enerpac DSX aluminium torque wrenches, a 4 in (101.6 mm) calibrated gauge, a two button pendant with 4.5 m cable and two oil fill sight glass indicators.
