The new WCR-4000 Series of rugged torque wrenches from Enerpac are designed to provide improved power, durability, accessibility and safety while having the lowest radial and spanner thickness possible.

As well as minimising downtime associated with failure of less durable compact designs, Enerpac says, the WCR4000 series enhances efficiency and minimises fatigue and delay by allowing easy and safe access to tight spaces, particularly API flanges commonly used in surface drilling and production pipelines and plant.

Available with a wide range of ring type spanners and able to be powered by Enerpac’s standard W4000 drive unit, the WCR features a Safe Fail Link design which incorporates a ‘mechanical fuse’ inside the cassette to safeguard against spanner fragmentation and associated injury hazards. This is a safety feature not found in other roller cassettes, the company says.

The WCR cassettes do not ratchet – instead, the tool moves around the outside of the flange as it torques the bolt, Enerpac says. The spanner is lifted and removed from the nut to re-stroke the tool on each cycle of the wrench, which allows for controlled tightening in applications where it might otherwise not be possible.

The WCR4000s join Enerpac’s range of non-impact professional bolting and joint products, including the W low-profile hexagonal wrenches, S square-drive wrenches, Z series torque wrench pumps and associated products such as the new ATM series of flange alignment tools.
