Equalizer International Innovation Recognised
Diploma of Distinction for Innovation for the Secure-Grip (SG) range of Equalizer Tools

Equalizer International, a world leading innovator of flange maintenance tools for the energy industry, has been awarded a Diploma of Distinction for Innovation at the 8th Gas Engineering Fair EXPO-GAS held in Kielce, Poland.

The organisers of the event particularly singled out Equalizer’s Secure-Grip (SG) tools for pipe flange spreading which they highlighted as one the most innovative products on show during the two-day exhibition. The Diploma was collected by Michael Machnik, Equalizer’s Sales Manager – Europe at a gala dinner during the Fair.


The SG range of tools uses a unique expandable-sleeve technology in both mechanical and hydraulic tools which can be used across a wide spectrum of bolted flange sizes.

John Morgan, MD of Equalizer International, said they were delighted with the award.

“Equalizer International tools are attracting considerable interest right across Europe and we see this as an important market for growth for us. We appointed Michael as our first Sales Manager in Europe last year and since then have exhibited at a number of exhibitions and conferences across the continent. We are delighted that our tools have been singled out for an award which recognises innovation, particularly at such an important exhibition as this.”
