STINGER® IMPROVES DISCONNECT SWITCH OPERATIONS

  • The Stinger® System makes opening and closing disconnect switches easier on the switch and the operator. Same day switching and fewer broken switches increases productivity.

  • The Stinger® System uses safe, nonflammable 1FR™ Penetrating Fluid to dissolve corrosion and soften hardened lubricants. This reduces the force needed to open the switch.

  • 1FR™ Penetrating Fluid is applied using the Stinger® tool.  A simple remote button initiates the stream of penetrant.

  • Application accuracy is ensured by a GoPro® camera mounted on the Stinger®, which is viewed by the operator via a hand-held video screen.

The stinger is ez to use and absolutely frees up stuck disconnects due to environmental and/or bimetal corrosion. We also use it for hard to operate units too.
