Calibration Transfer Standard for Make-Up/Break-Out Machines [Press Release]
Published by Cyndi Rude – February 8, 2016
S. Himmelstein and Company Large Capacity Reaction Torque Transducers cover a wide range of measurement requirements with capacities from 25,000 to over 300,000 lbf-ft. They are available with either a Square Drive or Hollow Flanged mechanical configuration, allowing the flexibility to suit many different installations.
Features include robust mechanical design with high stiffness; very high mechanical overload ratings and high extraneous load carrying capacity, making them ideal for oil field use. Compact size and low weight of square drive models simplify their installation, handling and shipping to remote locations.
They have high accuracy specifications, ±0.1% or ±0.25% of full scale, model dependent. Each unit is provided with an NIST traceable, NVLAP accredited calibration certificate. All calibrations are performed in our ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. Applications include measurement of actuation torque for large valves, and use as a secondary standard for periodic calibration of make-up/breakout machines.
Connecting with a Himmelstein Model 708 Signal Conditioning Instrument provides a local digital data display, I/O control, plus a computer interface for connection to a remote PC. Supplied software allows automatic data collection and storage for report generation. Instruments have expansion capability to add a second channel of data, permitting simultaneous display of torque and hydraulic pressure, for example.
