Accredited distributors of Enerpac (A Division of Actuant Corp) are offering hydraulic torque wrench verification services to ensure accuracy, safety and ease of use of various torque tools.
Enerpac is a globally respected specialist in 700 bar hydraulic technologies and extreme force tools, operating in 30 countries with an extensive service and technical support network established in Australasia for more than 50 years.
Accurate torque tools make bolting and fastening jobs so much easier, safer and more precise. Even the most rugged designs need periodic condition monitoring and verification of performance compared with their original calibration.
Enerpac National Bolting Manager Mr Pat Molloy explains that all manual, hydraulic and pneumatic torque wrenches as well as geared torque multipliers, periodically require testing to determine whether the torque output of a tool remains accurate before correcting any tool requiring recalibration so output matches the pre-set readings.
Hydraulic torque wrench verification services offered by accredited Enerpac distributors such as Trident Australia Fluid Systems and Components help safeguard against torque output changes over time caused by material wear and ageing.
Trident Australia is a West Australian-owned company specialising in complete solutions for high pressure and specification fluid systems and components. Trident Australia operates a NATA accredited Calibration Laboratory in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 and specialist torque tool verification services.
