When you splice reinforcement bars the Hardman way:
1. The joint is as strong as our molded-steel couplers — and stronger at the splice than the reinforcement bar itself.
2. Our hydraulic equipment can be operated safely at temperatures from -40 to +120 F (-40 to +50 C).
3. Splice in vertical and horizontal positions, anywhere on your building — even underwater!
4. Equipment can be operated by a single worker — full training usually takes about an hour.
A standard Hardman system includes:
Work pressure: 700 bar
Requisite power: 1.5 KW/hour
Station weight: 45 kg
Station dimensions: 50x40x55
Compression force: 90 tons.
Adjustable according to the size of connecting rebar needed.
For easy positioning of the press for connections anywhere.
