SPX FLOW’s Power Team brand has added to its portfolio of high force tools and equipment with the new high-pressure P59L-1500 Series hand pump, designed for the oil and gas, petrochemical and power generation industries.
The new hand pump reduces operator fatigue by using a linkage and handle socket design to lower the number of hand strokes required with its two-speed design. As well as enabling operators to work faster, the pump also has a patented spring-loaded handle lock for easier carrying and a fill port which allows the pump to be filled vertically or horizontally.
The company says the hand pump is well suited for tensioning, pressure test and other applications. It has an operating range up to 21,750 PSI (1500 BAR). The P59L-1500G model also comes with a skid plate for additional stability and a user-programmable digital pressure gauge, which can be set to a custom scale for the display of force or weight to match the tool being used. The standard model weighs just 10.4 lbs (4.7 kg), and all units are fitted with a large release valve knob to provide added control when slowly metering loads down.
