Tools and Equipment

Hydraulic compressors are used for applying mechanical electric fittings to aluminum conductors and steel and/or alumoweld overhead ground wire. AFL offers the most complete line of portable hydraulic compressors in the industry: 12, 30, 60, 100 and 150 ton.

Accompanying the compressors are portable gasoline and electric oil hydraulic pumps, tailored to rugged field use and offering manual and/or remote control. All pumps and compressors operate at one pressure, 10,000 psi, and have one type of quick coupling system which permits complete interchangeability.

The 100A Single or Double Acting Press is designed for the installation of compression fittings. The 100A develops 100 tons of force at 10,000 PSI. A special piston facilitates operation in single or double acting mode. Redesigned for portability, the press now weighs 95 pounds.
The 10AB high pressure hydraulic pump is extremely durable yet lightweight. It will operate under low-line voltage conditions. The two-stage pumping system of this unique, intermittent duty pump is designed for years of dependable service. The 10AB pump is ideal for running any 10,000 PSI tool up to and including the 60 ton press.
The 15GBM is a gas powered pump that produces 10,000 PSI of hydraulic pressure. It is designed to handle any high-pressure tool up to and including the 60 ton press. The two-stage pumping system allows for rapid ram advance. The “suc-o-matic” valve helps tools retract faster. The manual control has three settings: advance, hold and retract. Whether making one crimp or 1,000 crimps, the 15GBM is the lightweight, portable answer.
The 30GBM is a gas powered pump that produces 10,000 PSI of hydraulic pressure. It is designed to operate any 10,000 PSI compression tool. The two-stage pumping system allows for rapid ram advance. The “suc-o-matic” valve helps tools retract faster. The manual control has three settings: advance, hold and retract. The 30GBM is designed for continuous duty.
The 30GHR is a gas powered pump that produces 10,000 PSI of hydraulic pressure. The two-stage pumping system allows for rapid ram advance. The unloading pressure of the pump is 1,000 PSI. The 30GHR comes with a remote control with a 10 foot cord and is designed for continuous duty.
The 60AGSC and 60AFTGSC presses are portable 60-ton construction and maintenance tools designed to cover a full range of compression accessories requiring die sizes up to and including 40AH. The 60AFTGSC features an integral hinged head with eyes suitable for hot line work.
The 60-ton single or double-acting press is unsurpassed in the industry. The compression tool develops 60 tons of force at 10,000 PSI for the installation of electrical compression fittings.
A Swage 65 Ton Die Set comes with two dies per pipe size. These dies are available in 2", 2.5", 3", 3.5" and 4". Not all dies fit in one press head - Ensure you have the correct head assembly for the size dies needed.

ConductaClean from AFL agitates a specialized solution to remove oxidation and grime from conductor strands, and can be adjusted for one, three or six minute cycles depending on the condition of the conductor.
The 1/4” (0.635 cm) non-conductive, orange hose is made of an insulated, synthetic material. It allows a high-flow rate for faster ram movement. Hoses are available with or without couplers for operating pressures of 10,000 PSI with a 4-to-1 burst ratio. Hoses are pre-filled with oil and pressure tested. The hoses are 3/8” NPT male thread on both ends and quick disconnects are 3/8” NPT female.
Swage Gauges are used to measure the diameter of the bus pipe prior to installation as well measure the final compression diameter of the Swage accessory. The SWGGB Series gauges also feature a pin and marking window to properly mark the Bus pipe insertion depth. There are 8 gauges, one for each size bus accessory.
