Torque Wrench Tester

The Validator allows for instant verification that a wrench is still in calibration.

Mountz, Inc., the torque tool specialists®, introduces the Validator a new torque wrench tester. The Validator is torque measuring instrument designed for testing and calibrating torque wrenches. The economical torque wrench tester is small and compact. The Validator offers a torque range capacity from 40 - 200 foot-pounds. Measuring torque is literally a science and not something that can be left to chance.

Torque wrenches go out of calibration with use. Calibrating a torque wrench is a fine-tuning process of bringing the tool back within its tolerance. A regular wrench calibration and re-calibration guarantees the operator repeatable accuracy and adherence to international standards. Torque testing also ensures a torque wrench is operating to peak performance and can highlight potential tooling problems before it arises due to tool wear or broken components.

Torque wrench testers can also be used for quick tools tests on the assembly line or in the calibration lab to determine whether wrenches are holding a given setting. The Validator allows for instant verification that a wrench is still in calibration. Coupled with a torque wrench management and maintenance program the Validator can provide significant cost savings by not relying on a time-based calibration interval, but by servicing a wrench only when the wrench starts displaying the incorrect torque during in-house testing.

By performing periodic validations with a torque wrench a technician can be confident that the tool is producing accurately the desired torque setting. Periodic checks can be accomplished quickly with the use of the Validator's "Pass / Fail" visual feedback system. A preset a target torque and tolerance are programmed and if a torque reading falls within the tolerance a green light is illuminated, "Pass". A red light is illuminated for any out of tolerance readings, "Fail". The operator only needs to look at the lights. The robust torque tester is ideal for field service, maintenance and production applications.

Using a quality torque measurement equipment makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Controlling torque is essential for companies to ensure their product's quality, safety and reliability isn't compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn't properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently fastened can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.
