The RIDGID® Inner Tube Core Barrel Wrench is Efficient and Durable

August 22, 2014

The RIDGID® Inner Tube Core Barrel Wrench is the newest addition to the RIDGID line of Specialty Wrenches. Core barrel wrenches make short work of extracting core samples from inner tubes of core barrel systems. These wrenches are designed with a textured gripping surface that does not slip, so outer and inner tube components can be assembled and disassembled without causing damage or deforming the tubes or accessories.

The Inner Tube Core Barrel Wrench features replaceable inserts, which significantly extend the total lifetime of the tool. These specially-engineered inserts maximize the grip strength of the wrench while minimizing tube abrasion.

The wrench’s three-jaw design prevents tube distortion, ensuring the inner tube of the core barrel system continues to fit within the outer tube. The jaws lock to prevent disengagement from the tube, allowing the simple making and breaking of connections and one-handed ratcheting of the tool. The handle length is also optimized for core barrel torque requirements to greatly increase the ease of use.

The available models are WLN-IT (Size N) and WLH-IT (Size H), with the WLB-IT (Size B) and WLP-IT (Size P) coming soon.
