Hydraulic Torque Wrench Top Tips    

Using the correct torque wrench

The consequences of proper preload not being developed or maintained can lead to joint failure. Therefore, it is crucial to fully understand the required preload level for every joint before achieving it through a suitable tightening method, the correct tightening sequence and by using the correct torque wrench.

Calibration and Certification

Specifications by BS EN 1090-2 requires the torque wrench to have accuracy of +/-4. HTL’s 3-in-1 Hydraulic Torque Wrench modular range includes Low Profile, Square Drive and Ultra-Low attachments all of which are calibrated to +/-3 and are supplied serviced and calibrated with certification by HTL’s Service Department.

Designed and manufactured in the UK with full CE ATEX approval and 12 month warranty, HTL’s 3-in-1 Hydraulic Torque Wrench modular range is highly adaptable to suit any application.
