A torque multiplier is a tool used to provide a mechanical advantage in applying torque to turn bolts, nuts or other items designed to be actuated by application of torque, such as the actuation of valves, particularly where there are relatively high torque requirements. It is a simple gear box, works on the principle of ‘Epicyclic Gearing’. The given load at the input gets torque multipliers as per the multiplication factor and transmitted at the output, thereby with a minimum efforts you achieve greater load. Multipliers are engineered such that each gear stage has a velocity ratio of typically 5.45:1 which results in a true torque multiplication factor of 5:1.

Standard products are available up to 47,500 N.m (35,000 lbf.ft) and ‘specials’ to 100,000 N.m (73,000 lbf.ft). A range of ‘nose extensions’ for reaching difficult to access bolts and full range of torque transducers for highly accurate torque monitoring are available.
