How to Ensure Pneumatic Torque Wrench Accuracy

There’s been a lot of talk recently in the petro-chemical industry about pneumatic torque wrench accuracy and inaccuracy.

These tools are accurate, and repeatable, but there are several factors you’ll need to consider when ensuring pneumatic torque wrench accuracy:

Bolted Joint Tensioning Methods

Bolted joints will only hold together with the right amount of tension, which in turn requires the right amount of tightening.

In this blog post, we’ll look some of the common bolted joint tensioning methods, including torque control, torque and turn control, and stretch control.

Bolted Joint Design: The Difference Between Tension, Shear and Bending Joints

There are several different ways loads can be applied to bolted joints, each of them leading to specific effects on that joint that are the result of how the joint is loaded and responds to the load.

Common load types include tension, shear and bending joints, each of which gets its name from the type of external load applied to that joint.

Mechanical Properties of Steel Bolts

Bolted joint applications are designed to support or transmit some form of externally applied load. When selecting materials, it’s vital to choose according to the mechanical properties of steel bolts.

Out of all these properties, tensile strength is perhaps most commonly associated with standard fasteners. This is the greatest tension-applied load a fastener can handle before it begins to fracture.
