Wind Turbine Torque Tools and Why You Need Them
Most, if not all, machinery needs maintenance at some point in time, and wind turbines are no different. A big part of maintenance involves taking off nuts and bolts and re-attaching them during the assembly stage. This is when torque settings become especially important. Bolts need to be tightened according to a predetermined torque setting to ensure the smooth and safe running of the machine. The manufacturer determines torque settings.
