HETU-80® Heat Exchanger Torque Unit


Introducing The HETU-80® Heat Exchanger Torque Unit.


The HETU-80® heat exchanger torque unit is a universal pneumatic tightening device that is ideal for opening and closing plate heat exchangers easily and efficiently. The HETU-80® heat exchanger torque unit can be used either individually or two units can be used in tandem, for faster more efficient service.

Opening and closing large plate heat exchangers can be hard work. With a purpose-built tightening device, the work is not only carried out faster and safer, but the plate heat exchanger is also protected.
