Impact sockets are used in conjunction with high-torque impact power tools
like an electric wrench. Compared to a regular hand socket, it is specifically designed to withstand and absorb jolts of power. Regular sockets have a distinct and familiar shiny chrome material. While, an impact socket has a carbonized surface, which not only gives its black surface finish but also a harder, more durable build. If a regular socket is used with a power tool, the high torque of the equipment can make the socket warp and, ultimately, shatter and break down. On the other hand, using regular hand tools
with an impact socket, do not pose any harm to the socket. For impact sockets and other industrial equipment you need, you can buy here at MRO Supply.
