Norbar Torque Tools has introduced its HandtorqueTM HT-92 and HandtorqueTM HT-119.

Ideal for bolt tightening in confined spaces such as wind turbine towers, both the HT-92 and the HT-119 feature new materials and better traceability, the company explains, adding that they are the newest additions to its new Compact Series of Handtorque Multipliers.

Key features of the multipliers include a stainless-steel body, a calibration certificate, compact dimensions, lower weight and higher torque output.

In addition, the HT-119 with fitted reaction plate is 3.2 kg lighter than the HT60, the closest model in the existing Norbar range, but has a 1000 N.m higher torque output, at 7000 N.m.
