safety in numbers.

In matters of torque, knowing when to re-calibrate matters. 


 

5000 
CYCLES OR 12 MONTHS
 


This is the ASME recommended period for re-calibration, but many businesses may have their own procedures.

 


 

25%+ 
OVERLOAD
 


Another standard for torque calibration is, if the wrench is subject to an overload of 25% or more above the nominal maximum, then re-calibration is suggested.

 

 

AFFECTING FACTORS

There are no hard and fast rules about how long a torque wrench will stay calibrated. Circumstances and factors that lead to different re-calibration intervals include:
1  FREQUENCY OF USE



2  SETTING OF THE WRENCH AS A PERCENTAGE OF FULL SCALE



3  GENERAL CARE OF THE TOOL DURING STORING AND USAGE











Careless torque can
COST LIVES.
