ATEX-certified Pneumatic Torque Wrenches

RAD pneumatic torque wrenches fulfill all strict european requirements of the ATEX specification (II 2G/D EX c IIB/IIIB T6). These tools are suitable for operation in potentially explosive working environments. Spark protected tools are required in EX zones. Additionally, the pneumatic torque wrenches are protected against inflammation of flammable steam, gas, liquid and dust. Furthermore these tools can be operated in all temperature classes (T1 to T6). All pneumatic torque wrenches (except GX/DX TV with built in transducer) can be retrofitted according to ATEX specifications. For a higher safety the pneumatic tools can be delivered with a double safety trigger.

The battery-powered torque wrenches can be used for valve actuations, for example in container construction.

Torque Check Function

Screw connestions change due to environmental influences and mechanical loads. Screws become loose or loosen. For this reason, screw connectioons must be checked and serviced at specified intervals. Torque wrenches with a torque check function are suitable for this task.

If screws are further tightened during maintenance, this will also affect the screw connection. Therefore, M-PT has developed an innovative battery and electric torque wrench with an integrated, highly sensitive test program. Unlike conventional devices, the torque wrench measures the torque applied to the screw as the tension builds up, without further tightening the screw. The result: the screw connection is not manipulated during maintenance.
