What size nut does the Accu-Tite™ fit?
Integra's Accu-Tite™ sanitary clamp torque tools fit most standard wing nuts and are accurate to +/-4%.
What torque should I use?
There are no specific industry requiremnts for the proper torque setting of a hygienic clamp (Tri-clamp®) fitting, nor can there be. The correct torque setting is directly related to the propertiesof the seal material. Generally speaking, softer materials like elastomers (EPDM, Silicone) require less torque than more rigid materials (PTFE, PTFE/SS blends). Common practice in the industry uses torque ranges from 25-30 in pounds for elastomers and 50+ inch pounds for the PTFE and PTFE blend materials. Click here to learn more about torque requirements.
How long does the Accu-Tite™ torque tool last before it needs to be recalibrated?
Accu-Tite™ torque tools have an expected lifetime of 5,000 cycles before factory service is needed.
Can my Accu-Tite™ torque tool be recalibrated?
Yes, Accu-Tite™ torque tools can be recalibrated. When tools are returned for recalibration they are inspected internally and worn components are replaced and relubricated. The tools are then recalibrated to meet customer requirements. The tool will be returned with a certificate indicating that the tool has been calibrated to that manufacture's specification.
Is the Accu-Tite™ torque tool easy to use?
Yes, the Accu-Tite™ torque tool is very easy to use. Check out the video below to see just how easy!
