The AutoSPREADER provides up to 10,000 pounds of force to separate flange faces up to 3 inches and is available in Hydraulic (HS10K) or Manual (MS10K) models. A standard hand pump powers one Hydraulic AutoSPREADER flange spreader, or a pair of the AutoSPREADER flange spreaders, with ease. The Manual Auto-Spreader uses a ratchet handle to transform 100 ft-lbs. of input to 10,000 lbs. of spreading force to create the gap between flange faces. A load lowering valve is available for hydraulic pumps to control the closing rate of the HS10K.
Use the AutoSPREADER for a wide variety of tasks including: gasket maintenance, opening vessels, lifting, leveling and lowering, aligning turning blinds, bearing and impeller removal, separating manways, toe jack, and more. One of the most versatile tools you’ll ever own!

Multi-step Safety Block
Model S10K-SB Safety Blocks provide a safe and efficient operation when separating a flange. The operator can choose a desired width: 1”, 2” or 3”. The aluminum block is lightweight, and the handle can be easily gripped, even when wearing gloves. When safety blocks are inserted into the gap of the flange, the AutoSPREADER is closed and the load is then transferred to the safety blocks, enabling the operator to work safely on the gasket surface.
Hydraulic Power Source
HS10K Hydraulic Flange Spreaders may be used in multiple units connected to a common pump. A load lowering valve controls the rate of travel. The optional isolation valves enable the operator to control each AutoSPREADER independently. All HS10K AutoSPREADER, pumps, hoses and accessories are supplied with quick disconnects, filled and fully tested.
Model 100H2 is recommended to provide hydraulic power to a pair of HS10K AutoSPREADER. A100H2 Pump with TB Tee Block, two hoses and CV9596 Load Lowering Valve are recommended for operating two HS10K’s simultaneously.
