Core replacement with torque control

USA: Ritchie Engineering’s Yellow Jacket RealTorque core removal tools feature an integrated torque mechanism.

While removal of system Schrader cores can greatly increase the speed of recovery and evacuation, once charging is complete, it is important that the system Schrader cores be properly tightened to prevent leaks.

The RealTorque has an integrated torque mechanism that clicks as soon as the Schrader core has been tightened to the manufacturer recommended torque value of 3 to 5in-lb. This provides assurance that the Schrader core is properly tightened on every job and minimises the chances of leaks from this area of the system.
