Do Torque Wrenches Need to be Calibrated?
The short answer is yes. Why do they need to be calibrated? If a torque wrench is being used often, or even if it was improperly stored, it will need to be regularly calibrated. The main reason it needs to be calibrated is to be positive it’s producing accurate results.
When does a torque wrench need to be recalibrated?
- The ASME recommended period for re-calibration is 5000 cycles or 12 months.
- The wrench is subject to 25% overload or more above the normal maximum.
How to Calibrate a Torque Wrench
While it is possible to calibrate a torque wrench yourself, it can be a good idea to ensure the calibration is done right. This is especially important if you’re regularly using your torque wrench while working. Here is our process for calibrating a torque wrench:
- First, we check to see the current calibration of your torque wrench.
- After we measure the current calibration, we inspect the necessary calibration and proceed to calibrate and repair.
Trust us to be your very own torque wrench calibration service provider. Our calibration range includes the following...
- Torque Tools from 0.1 ozf/in to 2,000 lbf/ft with accuracies starting at ± 0.25%
- Torque Analyzers from 10 ozf/in to 2,000 lbf/ft with accuracies starting at ± 0.05%
- Impact Torque Tools from 25 lbf/ft to 2,500 lbf/ft with accuracies starting at ± 1.0%
