A pipe wrench refers to any type of wrench that is designed to tightening and loosening threaded pipe and pore fittings for assembly and disassembly purposes. Wrenches are generally tools that are used to generate a grip and produce a mechanical advantage when using them to turn fasteners
to loosen or tighten objects. Pipe wrenches have a spanner with serrated hard teeth on the jaw, which bites onto the pipe, providing the necessary force that turns the pipe. The adjustable jaw design of a pipe wrench enables the wrench to bind itself on the pipe, as the forward pressure pulls the jaws tighter. The classification of pipe wrenches is based on the length of their handles, and they can be manufactured with sizes ranging from 80mm to 1,200mm and in even larger sizes. The basic material of construction for pipe wrenches is cast steel. Some wrenches feature aluminum on the wrench body and steel jaw and teeth. A pipe wrench is sometimes used to refer to a plumber wrench.Get the best choice of pipe wrenches available in the market today. Shop at MRO Supply for the finest selection of wrenches
