Equalizer flange spreaders feature an integrated spreading wedge design that produce a smooth, parallel wedge movement creating a force perpendicular to the flanges faces being separated. This design eliminates flange damage and spreading wedge failure. (See il. below).

This drawing illustrates how forces are applied with the Equalizer spreading wedge. The downward force from the wedge is transmitted in a perpendicular motion to the flange faces that require separation.
