Determine Residual Torque by Performing a "Just Move" Test
Once a torque specification is determined, the joint must be audited to ensure the product has been fastened to the specified torque. The best way to determine residual torque is by performing a "just move" test. Mountz offers two best practices solutions for measuring residual torque.
The Mountz TorqueMate digital torque wrench will display torque applied after 3 degrees of movement, it will also show the final Torque and angle applied.
An economical counterpart to the TorqueMate digital Wrench is the Mountz Dial Wrench. The dial wrench captures the finishing torque applied to a fastener with fine main and memory pointers.
Both the TorqueMate and Dial Wrench can be reversed to measure breakaway torque.
