One of the busiest industries, oil and gas companies have helped power the world for more than a century. As a demanding industry, they require machining and bolting tools that could deliver precise outputs in less time. Choosing the right torque wrenches or technology is one of the crucial factors to reduce maintenance downtime significantly. In this article, we will understand how torque wrenches benefit the oil and gas industry operations.
Before we talk about torque wrenches, let us highlight the major application of torque wrenches in the industry. Hydraulic pumps and torque wrenches are used on wellhead connections, including valves, flow lines, and BOP. They are used to assemble pumps, pipelines, valves, flanged joints like pipes and valves. Additionally, they are used in other applications such as heat exchangers, pressure pipe flanges, steam pipe flanges, compressor stations, reactor pressure vessels, condenser and many more.
