Norbar Launch Two Best-In-Class GearboxesNorbar Torque Tools is proud to announce the launch of 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 HT-119 combine new materials, better traceability and are the newest additions to Norbar’s new Compact Series of HandtorqueTM Multipliers.

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

In comparison to the closest existing model from Norbar’s current range, the HT-30, the HT-92 is smaller in diameter (92mm versus 108mm), lighter (5.4 kg versus 7 kg) and has a 1000 N.m higher torque output at 4000 N.m.

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.

The new multipliers are designed to satisfy customer demand for greater traceability. Every HT-92 and  HT-119 will be supplied with a traceable calibration certificate stating its exact ratio.

The nominal ratio for the HT-92 and HT-119 will be 25:1 and the calibration certificate will demonstrate that this performance guarantee is delivered within a tolerance band of +/- 4% by stating the exact ratio for every product delivered.

Philip Brodey, Sales and Marketing Director at Norbar, said:

We set out to produce the best hand operated multipliers on the market and the HT-92 and HT-119 both live up to this. With new compact dimensions, higher torque output and better calibration traceability, both multipliers make great additions to our exciting HandtorqueTM range. We have named this new group of products the ‘Compact Series,’ as it also includes our HT-52 and HT-72.

The multipliers have stainless steel bodies for much more than just aesthetic benefits. We know that our HandtorqueTM Multipliers have tough lives and the use of a corrosion resistant material means that there is no plating that can be damaged or lifted off. The stainless steel we have chosen is also extremely strong, which will contribute to these products being the most reliable on the market. Removing the need for plating also means fewer production miles and no plating chemicals to deal with.

Both multipliers come with a new style operator’s manual, carry case and are in the new Norbar branding.
