United Rentals’ flange spreaders and crimpers for rent are ideal for safe and efficient pipe maintenance. Flanges are commonly used as a lid to close or cover a pipe end or to hold pipes together, and flange spreaders easily separate or open flanges with a jack system working in the gaps. Featuring a wide range of products from hydraulic and manual flange spreaders to these manual dieless crimpers, we offer plenty of sizes and options to meet your various jobsite demands. This electric roll groover can mechanically join two pipes, using pressure to create a study, waterproof seal. Additionally, we offer cable crimpers, used to form a solderless connection or terminate a wire, and pipe crimpers, which apply pressure to the pipe fitting to form a leakproof seal.

Flange spreaders are used to separate stubborn or stuck flange joints for repair, replacement or maintenance applications. The spreaders are inserted between two conjoined flanges and separate the ends. They are kept separated by blocks while the necessary maintenance is performed. Spreaders are hydraulic or mechanical and come in collet or wedge styles, depending on the specific job needs. Need more help? Contact one of our equipment experts for further guidance.
Different flange spreading tools or approaches may work better with certain flange fittings based on the project demands and flange size. For smaller, lightweight applications, a small, manual hand jack would be ideal, while larger, heavy-duty projects would be better suited with a hydraulic flange spreader for increased strength. We offer a variety of flange spreader rental options to suit your needs.
A crimping tool is commonly used with wiring or cables to “fuse” metal ends and pieces together without welding or soldering. There are varying processes and approaches to completing these types of tasks, but crimping tools are made to apply direct pressure to the wire or cable until the “crimp” is made. Crimping tools are often used in place of welding or soldering to connect. We recommend reaching out to United Rentals specialists in your area for inquiries regarding specific equipment uses.
