Ingersoll Rand plc has introduced PowerSocket, an impact socket designed to break loose virtually any bolt, no matter how stubborn and rusted.
The company says PowerSocket is an innovative solution that delivers up to 50% more torque compared to a stand-alone impact tool. Its unique design and robust power loosens hard-to-remove fasteners, bolts and lug nuts fast, saving mechanics time and money by eliminating the need for additional tools.
“In field testing the Ingersoll Rand PowerSocket broke bolts loose almost immediately, when other methods failed. With a variety of sizes available, the PowerSocket helps technicians save time and energy loosening stubborn bolts,” says Eric Suro, global portfolio leader for Ingersoll Rand Power Tools.
Similar to a standard impact socket, the PowerSocket fits directly on the square drive of a half-inch impact tool, according to the company. Once fastened to the tool, the PowerSocket provides up to 50% more torque than standard impact sockets. The unique power ring design amplifies the tool’s power output.
With the same high durability standards as popular Ingersoll Rand Impactools, the PowerSocket is lightweight and compact to fit in tight spaces, making it ideal for applications that usually require a larger impact tool or a breaker bar.
The PowerSocket is available in five different sizes, 17mm, 19mm, 21mm, 26mm and 27mm, to meet the standard bolt and lug nut variations from a variety of car and tire manufacturers.
The sockets are specifically optimized for use with Ingersoll Rand half-inch Impactools, and are also compatible with half-inch impact tools from other manufacturers.
