Industrial bolting systems manufacturer HYTORC has released the all-new ICE series, which, the company states, serves as the only industrial bolting system with a built-in auto release to prevent the inconvenient lockup of tools and a patented hose connector for improved flexibility on tight jobs.
According to the company, the ICE tool is able to release pressure after bolting for quick movement from nut to nut, improving operator efficiency and safety. In addition, HYTORC states it is also the only hydraulic bolting system that allows for positioning without constraints from hoses and reaction members.
“The ICE series is the result of 45 years of continuous innovation and feedback from our team of industry experts,” says Eric Junkers, president of HYTORC. “Today, the industries we work with are focused on improving productivity and safety more than ever before.”
HYTORC says the new ICE product also features a co-axial drive, which results in greater tool longevity by eliminating much of the stress from the tool housing and internal components. Its breakout assist mechanism prevents the ratchet from moving backward, making for a quick and more powerful breakout – even if nuts and bolts are damaged or corroded.
The company adds that ICE works in conjunction with HYTORC’s other products, such as the HYTORC Washer, the HYTORC Nut and customized reaction fixtures for various applications across several industries.
