Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to some common Torque questions:

Why can't I buy one torque wrench that goes from 0 to 1,000 N.m?

The torque wrench scale ranges from 20% to 100% of the maximum torque value of any given tool as referenced in the EN ISO 6789:2003 Torque Wrench Standard. Learn More about ISO-6789 here.

Why can't my NATA calibration be completed same day?
Our procedure states that electronic items need to stabilise to the lab temperature of 20 degrees plus or minus 2 degrees for 8 hours.
Can I have a calibration job booked in ahead of time?
What is the minimum pressure and volume of air I need to run a Pneumatic Torque Multiplier?
6bar/90psi @ 40cfm/22lps
How often should I have my Torque Multiplier recalibrated?
We suggest customers recalibrate their Torque Multiplier at least once a year and more frequently if used for critical fasteners.
Do I need to send the Regulator/Gauge with the tool?
Ideally, yes. The accuracy of the pressure/torque chart will be improved if the tool and controller are calibrated in tandem.
