Our range of torque wrenches is sourced directly from the leaders in bolting systems, SPX Flow Bolting Systems, which manufacture the best torque wrenches. Covered with a lifetime warrantee, all wrenches in our range allow users to monitor the torque applied to the selected fastener so it matches a particular application’s specifications. This creates precise tensioning and loading of all parts.
All wrenches in the range:
A fully-loaded torque wrench stored for long periods may result in a set in the spring, weakening it over time.
However, if the spring is completely off-loaded, other wrench components might move, even just by a fraction. When spring compression is reapplied, the orientation of these components can change and affect accuracy.
A torque wrench is used where the tightness of screws and bolts is crucial. It applies specific torque to fasteners like nuts, bolts, or lag screws and is in the form of a socket wrench with special internal mechanisms
If you’re looking for high accuracy, digital torque wrenches are the way to go. However, they generally have a delicate construction, which requires extra care while handling. A digital torque wrench requires batteries to operate, something to consider when weighing the pros and cons of digital torque wrenches.
A torque wrench and a ratchet are not the same. A ratchet is a plain wrench designed for loosening and tightening bolts. Torque wrenches, however, are used where precise torque settings are required for a specific bolt, like in tasks in the automotive sector.
Most torque wrenches can be used for undoing bolts, as long as the maximum torque is not exceeded. If the maximum torque limit is exceeded when loosening a bolt, it can affect the accuracy of the torque wrench.
A torque multiplier (or torque multiplier wrench) is a tool used to increase the amount of applied torque, which enables more rapid assembly and disassembly of heavy machinery and structure, among others.
Torque is measured by multiplying the amount of force applied and the distance from the point of application. That is the reason that the torque amount is written in units of force and distance.
The International Organization of Standardization (ISO) says a torque wrench should be re-calibrated every 5000 uses or every 12 months. It is advisable to have the calibration done in a testing laboratory. However, you can assemble a torque wrench calibrator and do the testing yourself, but you will need to determine the calibration ratio and multiply that amount by the required bolt torque.
Torque angle replaces a maximum torque value for a fastener with a specific amount of fastener rotation. After setting a low baseline torque, just to make sure the fastener is set, the fastener is rotated a precise amount to set the final position and clamp load.
Torque wrench sizes and capacity range from small, to medium, and large. The torque range for small-sized models varies from 30-200 inches.
