The Benefits of Using a Battery Powered Torque Wrench

One of the greatest comeback stories in our industry in recent years has been the battery powered torque wrench.

When we first wrote about these tools a few years ago, it was with several caveats, including the fact that they had a shorter battery life.

But these days, battery powered torque wrenches carry many of the benefits of other torque wrench varieties with none of the drawbacks of their earlier incarnations.

Hydraulic Torque Wrench Operation Tips

Hydraulic torque wrenches operate at high pressure (up to 10,000 PSI) and can produce torque outputs over 50,000 ft./lbs.

These are very precise tools, with an accuracy range of plus or minus three percent and a repeatability of plus or minus one percent.

Hydraulic torque wrench operation is powered by a hydraulic pump, which is in turn runs using either electric power or pneumatic pressure.

These are industrial strength wrenches, able to exert a tremendous amount of torque to a large bolt head. You’ll find them at work in power plants, pipelines and steel mills.

What is ASME PCC-1 and Why is It So Important?

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a non-profit organization made up of engineers, scientists and business executives working to improve their industry.

To that end, ASME has produced recommended industry standards based on research and testing. In this blog post, we’ll look at one of those standards, ASME PCC-1.

ASME PCC-1 is the guideline for pressure boundary bolted flange joint assembly. Essentially, anyone involved in the refinery, chemical and pipeline industries who deals with assembling bolting connections should be aware of this document.
