RAD Torque and Refineries

Refineries around the world trust RAD Torque. Almost every refinery on every continent uses RAD Torque tools. That’s because they know our torque wrenches and other tools keep their production lines flowing 24/7/365. They know our tools help stop leaks and other dangerous malfunctions. And they know RAD tools keep their employees and facilities safe.

Safety for Your Refineries — and Your Employees

Refineries are dangerous environments where a single spark can provoke a disaster. Safety is your top priority — which is why our spark-free technology is an ideal match, ensuring the protection of your employees and your communities.

Our pneumatic torque wrenches are safe for use in potentially explosive environments. Because they apply specific torque exactly where and how it’s needed, they help you minimize the dangers involved with equipment malfunction.

Their smooth operation also protects your workers against injury. Because they work without excessive vibration, our torque wrenches shield against Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), which is sadly all too common when using heavy-duty impact wrenches.

Time is Money

There’s no downtime in the refinery business. When you’re up and running around the clock, every day of the year, one piece of equipment going down can cause backups and scheduling problems with extreme consequences.

RAD torque wrenches help your refineries keep oil flowing. Our wrenches are accurate to +/-5%, and they’re fast to use since your technicians can set torque correctly the first time. When you make flange connections properly using our tools, you can prevent leaks and breakdowns.

That’s why companies like Shell and ExxonMobil use RAD torque tools at their refineries. They know they can count on RAD Torque.

-Sam Hamilton, Kal Tire Operations Manager, BC/Yukon
