Getting The Right Torque
Lowell Corporation (Worcester, MA) has introduced a new torque wrench kit that gives workers greater flexibility in working with US-style No-HUB couplings up to 60 or 80 lb-in. Each kit comprises of two Lowell T-Torker torque wrenches and three hex sockets (1/4”, 5/16”, and 3/8”), with one wrench preset to 60 lbs. max torque and the other to 80 lbs. When maximum torque is reached during the tightening process, each wrench will slip to prevent overrunning. The wrenches are designed with a compact size and light weight to ensure hand comfort. All mechanisms are sealed in the die-cast handle and lubricated for the lifetime of the tools.
