The Complete Guide About Torque Tightening

2 mn read

The torque tightening chart for Bolt is very well utilized across the industry wherever the operations associated with torque tightening are implemented. The torque can be termed as the measure of how much the force will be acting on the object that will cause the rotation among the objects. The torque tightening can be termed as the process of applying the preload to the fastener by turning the nut of the fastener very well. A proper comprehensive amount of preload has to be created whenever the torque will be largely there so that effects of friction can be taken the best possible advantage of. On a normal basis there are three kinds of components of the torque:


 -The torque which is required to stretch the bolt.

 -The torque which is required to overcome the friction element into the nut and bolt.

 -The torque which is required to overcome the friction at the nut spot face.


 The preload or the residual load can be termed as the applied torque minus the frictional losses. Also, another very important component throughout the process is the lubrication. The lubrication can be termed as the friction which is created during the tightening process and it will help in decreasing the bolt failure during the installation that will further help in increasing The Bolt service life. The variation into the friction quotations will always affect the amount of preload achieved at the specified level of torque. Higher will be the fraction it will result in less conversion of the torque to the preload. The basic value of the friction coefficient provided by the lubricant manufacturer will also be very well known to accurately establish the required value of the torque all the time. The lubricant or the anti-seizure components and compounds will always be applied to both the nut-bearing surface and the threads of the whole process.


 Whenever the torque procedure will be implemented it is very much common to tighten only one bolt at a proper point of time because it will result in the point loading and the load scatter. To avoid all these kinds of situations the torque has to be applied into several kinds of stages and sequences. The steps of this process are mentioned as follows:



 -First of all the spanner has to be utilized so that it will ensure that approximately three threads are extended above the nut.

 -Then each of the bolts has to be tightened so that final required torque can define a specific pattern.

 -After this, the torque can be increased to the 2/3 of the pattern.

 -Then the torque has to be increased up to the best possible levels.

 -After this, the performance of one final pass on each of the bolt into the working condition has to be done so that the final goal can be achieved.


At the time of loosening the boards of the torque the higher value is normally required and this is mainly because of the corrosion element present in the process. Hence, Metric Bolt tightening torque is always based upon the above-mentioned concepts.
