Types of a Torque Calibrator
The torque calibrator comes equipped with two beams, both having a hydraulic cylinder, which is used for the exerting of forces that appear on opposite ends of the beams, as well as load cells that can be found mounted on opposite sides of the beams that are used for the measuring of force that is applied to the beams. These beams were specifically designed to have a cell mounted between them, torque sensor can then calibrate the required amount of distance and force that is needed. A torque calibrator is available to the customer in many different types, and can also be called pressure calibration equipment, that has to use the HP 6920B meter for measurements.
The torque calibrator was used to measure up to two thousand pounds worth of torque in both clockwise modes, and counter clockwise modes in the past. Periodic calibration is what you will need to perform in order to maintain these instruments.
Dry-block calibrators, which are made to your specific requirements by Utica, are one of many various types of calibration instruments available. These machines are extremely versatile for when it comes to the calibrating of temperature sensor assemblies. These instruments are portable, traceable and can easily meet the calibration requirements in the field temperature work areas, but they can also cause many calibration errors if they are not understood or monitored correctly and properly. Every dry-block calibrator comes with a heated block which is designed to have several interchangeable inserts. There will be a sensor that is located inside the block for measuring and controlling temperature, but it is not placed within the insert. A thermocouple is made when insert and block materials that are selected to form a thermocouple are used, therefore causing small differences, and sometimes errors as well, to be introduced.
The torque wrench is another well known type of calibrator. This is an item that is used to accurately apply a specific amount of force to a fastener which can either be a nut or a bolt. It is very similar to that of the socket wrench, but it has more special internal mechanisms. This special wrench is used primarily for when the tightening of screws and bolts is desperately needed, as well as to prevent bolt tension from occurring. The next instrument, is the electric driver, which provides stability, dependence and repeatability, when stopping bolt tension as well as for low to mid range applications. By having a special grip, it reduces stress from long working hours and ensures safety as it is designed for a direct current flow, low tension method. Lastly is the air tool calibrator, which has been said by Utica to be the foundation of just about any fastening strategy. Air tool calibrators come in many different types, which use compressed air as well as calibration meters, such as the HP 6920B meter to operate adequately. These have the same setup as the electric driver and wrench calibrators, but need more maintenance, for if they are not given enough, the precise calibrations you are after will not be accurate, which will lead to errors.
