Ellipse Tongs Kit

Ellipse Tongs Kit


Description :

Ellipse tongs are intended to use for the positioning of gamma radiography sources and collimators.
Hydraulic clamping of all joints by central locking. Mounting prism for source terminals up to Ø18.5 mm.
Clamping tongs for pipe diameters of between 10 and 90 mm OD.
This ellipse tongs construction kit is supplied in a robust, impact resistant and waterproof transport case.
The set contains:
 gripper tongs with stand base
 hydraulic fixture with mounting prism
 2 screwable tubular extension segments of 130mm and 260mm in length
 three fork spanners for the fitting: 2x SW22, 1x SW15
 hydraulic fluid 30 ml bottle
The components can be assembled to an ellipse tongs in a modular way. Depending on the usage of the extension segments, four various lengths can be combined.
When using both segments a maximum film focus-distance of 830 mm can be reached.
Easy assembling: The hydraulic fixture may optionally be screwed on the gripper tongs directly, or with one or both extension segments in between. Tighten each screw connection by using two fork spanners.

Note on using the hydraulic fixture
The hydraulic system generates a strong clamping force already when tighten the hand wheel slightly.
The maximum clamping force of approximately 7 kg can only be achieved when both joint balls are dry and oil-free.
A continual over-load should be avoided since this could lead to a loss of oil and, in a worst case, can damage the seals of the hydraulic system.
In case of oil loss the hydraulic performance can be restored by simple refilling a few drops of oil. Just remove the hand wheel and the hydraulic piston which is underneath.
