Flange Alignment

About the Flange Alignment Products

The Equalizer patented range of alignment tools addresses the rotational or lateral misalignment that can occur within flange joints. Compared with traditional, manual approaches, the Equalizer tools offer a much safer, quicker and effective means of realigning flanges.

Applications

Our Flange Alignment tools can be used to resolve lateral or rotational misalignment during:

  • commissioning
  • construction
  • routine maintenance
  • shut-downs or outages
  • testing
  • valve change-outs

Product Features

  • operate on most pipe
  • configurations
  • use on horizontal or vertical flanges including ANSI/ASME, API, BS, DIN and SPO
  • suitable for offshore and onshore applications

Operational Benefits

Using our Flange Alignment
tools:

  • saves time
  • saves cost
  • optimizes staffing
  • promotes work continuity
  • encourages safer working practice
  • enables efficient operation
  • lightweight and portable - ideal for remote locations or confined environments
  • dispenses with need for cranes, tirfors and hooks
