The T-Handle Torque Wrench is a calibrated tool used to properly install our series 304 stainless steel take-up clamps on a variety of connectors such as PSX: Direct Drive, Cast-A-Seal products and WS-30 Waterstop’s.
It is set to 60 in/lbs torque to ensure the clamps are tightened fully and evenly across the entire connector surface.
The stainless steel take-up clamps used in Press-Seal connectors are used to complete the sealing system. They must be installed to the proper tightness but should not be over-installed or damage may result.
It is impossible to “guess” the tightness of a clamp. Only a calibrated tool can ensure that the clamp is properly installed.
