Bolt Tension Gauge Calibrations

The Applied Technical Services Family of Companies (FoC) provides precise bolt tension gauge calibrations. Our calibration experts ensure our clients’ bolts have sufficient tension for the intended application.

What are Bolt Tension Gauge Calibrations, and Why are They Important?
Bolt tension gauges measure the force applied to a tightened bolt or threaded fastener. These devices ensure that bolted connections are adequate for the intended application. During a bolt tension gauge calibration, a technician applies a specified load to the bolt to observe the bolt’s reaction to the force. A bolt is calibrated if its reaction is within the acceptable tolerance range. If the bolt requires further calibration, our technicians make the necessary adjustments to ensure calibration.
Torque tools should be calibrated once a year to ensure their accuracy. Failure to calibrate torque tools could result in the following:
