scope:

1.1 This practice covers procedures and requirements for the calibration of torque for static and quasi-static torque capable testing machines or devices. These may, or may not, have torque indicating systems and include those devices used for the calibration of hand torque tools. Testing machines may be calibrated by one of the three following methods or combination thereof:

1.1.1 Use of standard weights and lever arms.

1.1.2 Use of elastic torque measuring devices.

1.1.3 Use of elastic force measuring devices and lever arms.

1.1.4 Any of the methods require a specific uncertainty of measurement and a traceability derived from national standards of mass and length.

1.2 The procedures of 1.1.1, 1.1.2, and 1.1.3 apply to the calibration of the torque-indicating systems associated with the testing machine, such as a scale, dial, marked or unmarked recorder chart, digital display, etc. In all cases the buyer/owner/user must designate the torque-indicating system(s) to be calibrated and included in the report.

1.3 Since conversion factors are not required in this practice, either english units, metric units, or SI units can be used as the standard.

1.4 Torque values indicated on displays/printouts of testing machine data systems-be they instantaneous, delayed, stored, or retransmitted-which are Calibrated with provisions of 1.1.1, 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 or a combination thereof, and are within the ±1 % of reading accuracy requirement, comply with this practice.

1.5 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard: For purposes of determining conformance with these specifications, an observed value or a calculated value shall be rounded "to the nearest unit" in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding method of Practice E 29, for Using Significant Digits in Test Data to Determine Conformance with Specifications.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
