Rail bonds are set up using an hydraulic tool, which has a pre-calibrated pressure force. This hydraulic tool is required for setting rail bonds and used to fit the rail bond into the rail by expanding its bush.
The pulling unit is screwed onto the rail bond and is set into the hole of the rail. The pulling unit and the hydraulic tool are identified by a same colour code according to the force to be produced.
Nose of the hydraulic setting tool is placed over the knurled part of the pulling unit. The hydraulic setting tool is pushed to the rail and the pumping handle is actuated until the automatic release.
Automatic release with an audible “click” when the pressure force is reached. Visual mark of stroke moving.
Return of piston by pressing the release trigger.
Removable handle, allowing setting of rail bond even in case of small clearance (junction crossing).
Bush remover allows dismounting of the rail bond if this one is damaged by an external agression (the dowel will be removed with a hammer and the bush with the bush remover).
