IF FEASIBLE STAY DISTANT FROM TOOL UNDER PRESSURE
OR HOLD HANDLE IN A SAFE POSITION!
UNLESS THERE IS CLEAR COMMUNICATION OTHERWISE - THE TOOL OPERATOR OPERATES PUMP!
Pressurize tool on the ground and cycle it several times at maximum pressure to check tool, hoses and pump for function and leaks. Replace hose and fix tool or pump in case of any leaks or functioning irregularities prior to use. Next survey tool, reaction arm, socket and backup wrench for cracks or any badly worn areas and replace as needed.
PLEASE STAY DISTANT FROM TOOL HOSES AND PUMP DURING SAFETY TESTS
TORQUE TOOL SETUP:
Assure tight screw-connectors (without gap). Set required pump pressure with tool connected. Firmly connect socket to drive. FOR TOOL SETUP Loosen screw connectors half a turn if pump operator is distant from job to avoid inadvertent startup while handling the tool. Retighten thereafter.
REACTION ARM SETTING:
The reaction arm of the tool should be placed in the same direction as the drive, whenever possible, so as to create pressure against the adjacent nut or the casing. Then test by placing tool on the nut, apply pressure to make sure reaction is firm and tool does not rise. If it does, reset the reaction arm.
On vertical or inverted applications, hold the tool so that even if there is a failure of tool or socket that you are out of harm's way. Keep hands clear of the edge of the reaction arm. On horizontal applications, take hands-off when tool is in use!
