We have the largest inventory in North America of hydraulic jacks and loadcells. All calibrations are performed in house with results traceable back to NIST. We have the ability to Overnight equipment anywhere in North America. If needed we provided Trained on site personnel to assist with setup training and also to monitor and record the Load Test Results. Please contact us and let our staff help you with your application.
We can provide jacking equipment to test driven piles from 1 -2000 tons. The systems can be manually, electrically or automatically controlled. They can be accompanied with a load cell and digital readout box. Static load tests points have proven to save money while providng accurate data. See Pile Driver article on the Rhode Island Department of Transportation project.
Travel dial sets can be provided to monitor the movement of the pile while performing the load test.
Please read the article in Pile Driver Magazine about Innovative static load test points to savings for the Rhode Island Department of Transportation.
The hydraulic jacking system used, which consisted of four 1,800 kip double acting hydraulic jacks, was provided by WB Equipment Service Company Inc.

Bolt Testing” generally describes using our hydraulic load cells i.e. HS, J, K, M, MZ, S etc. to measure fastener performance as follows:
Pre-Installation Verification Tension Testing & Rotational Capacity Testing of structural fasteners per AISC/RCSC specifications.
General fastener testing to determine torque/tension relationships.
The types of components that can be tested include but are not limited to Hex Bolts, Tension Control Bolts, Anchor Bolts, Studs, Lock Nuts, Direct Tension Indicating Washers, etc.
Skidmore Wilhelm’s hydraulic tension calibrator, or bolt tension calibrator, has been the industry standard for testing high-strength bolts since we invented the technology in the 1950’s. Our units are required to be used on steel buildings, bridges and other structures using fasteners in tension critical joints.
Our units can safely be used with hand torque wrenches, impact guns, electric wrenches and hydraulic wrenches.

Freyssi Flat Jacks are simple, practical devices for the civil or structural engineer wherever the application or control of large forces is required. Flat jacks are frequently used in the solution of unforeseen problems such as in remedial measures or structural additions.
SYNCHRONOUS LIFTING SYSTEMS
The sensor extension is different from the Cylinder stroke value. The sensor extension is hooked to the load, and it has a value even when the Cylinder is collapsed. The potential applications of this system are numerous synchronized lifting levering, pushing, pulling and positioning using computer technology.of a synchronous lifting system
The hydraulic press depends on Pascal’s principle: the pressure throughout a closed system is constant. One part of the system is a piston acting as a pump, with a modest mechanical force acting on a small cross-sectional area; the other part is a piston with a larger area which generates a correspondingly large mechanical force. Only small-diameter tubing (which more easily resists pressure) is needed if the pump is separated from the press cylinder.
Power Team Monostrand Stressing Jacks are the most durable in the industry.
Monostrand Stressing Jacks suited for work on slab-on-grade where dirt, heat and high volume use take their toll.
Stressing jacks are mainly used on construction sites for stressing mono-strand anchors, and for the separate stressing of the strands of multistrand tendons.
We can provide customized jacking equipment to test driven piles from 1 -2000 tons. The systems can be manually, electrically or automatically controlled.
WB Equipment has delivered components for multiple jacking systems. Our knowledge of structural design, hydraulics, and automation means that we are capable of designing a complete jacking system with controls that allow for fully automated jacking and monitoring.
HYDRAULIC TORQUE WRENCH
A hydraulic torque wrenchis a power tool designed to exert torque on a fastener to achieve proper tightening or loosening of a connection through the use of hydraulics. A torque wrench is applied to the nut either directly or in conjunction with an impact socket. Hydraulic torque wrenches apply a predetermined, controlled amount of torque to a properly lubricated fastener.
A strand jack (also known as strandjack) is a jack used to lift very heavy (e.g. thousands tons or more with multiple jacks) loads for construction and engineering purposes.
Strand jacks can be used horizontally for pulling objects and structures, and are widely used in the oil and gas industry for skidded loadouts. Oil rigs of 38000 Te have been moved in this way from the place of construction on to a barge. Since multiple jacks can be operated simultaneously by hydraulic controllers, they can be used in tandem to lift very large loads of thousands of tons. Even the tandem use of two cranes is very difficult operation.
A hoist is a device used for lifting or lowering a load by means of a drum or lift-wheel around which rope or chain wraps. It may be manually operated, electrically or pneumatically driven and may use chain, fiber or wire rope as its lifting medium.
The basic hoist has two important characteristics to define it: Lifting medium and power type. The lifting medium is either wire rope, wrapped around a drum, or load-chain, raised by a pulley with a special profile to engage the chain. The power can be provided by different means. Common means are hydraulics, electrical and air driven motors.
A jack, screwjack or jackscrew is a mechanical device used as a lifting device to lift heavy loads or to apply great forces. A mechanical jack employs a screw thread for lifting heavy equipment.
A hydraulic jack uses hydraulic power. The most common form is a car jack, floor jack or garage jack, which lifts vehicles so that maintenance can be performed. Jacks are usually rated for a maximum lifting capacity (for example, 1.5 tons or 3 tons). Industrial jacks can be rated for many tons of load.
Quick acting re-bar grips are available for pull out testing of reinforcing bars in concrete, (re-bar/reinforcement bars) used in construction of highways, bridges, and tunnels as well as rigging and other applications.
When used with hydraulic jack, user slips jack and grip over grouted re-bar and applies pressure to load. These re-bar grips come in sizes No. 4-18 and accommodate construction industry’s focus on repair, maintenance, and building of public infrastructure.
