This torque tool has been specifically developed to address the increasing requirement for a 17kNm tool. The interface is based on the ISO 13628-8 fig 18 class 7, with the exception of the length of the nose of the tool, this is based on the industry standard. The tool is supplied with a class 6 socket.
The tool can be supplied with a hot stab receptacle, electronic turns counter and integrated compensator unit, to allow the tool to be deployed to the subssea work site in a basket, separate from the ROV and then connections made with a hot stab.
A socket inset is used to allow class 6 size socket or class 7 size socket valves to be operated.
