Morehouse collaborated with North American Industry through the ASTM E28 committee to help ensure labs are making accurate torque measurements. Our Unique technical capabilities is one of the main benefits of our torque testing laboratory.
Almost all torque measurements have unaccounted measurement errors. Torque load cell calibration is much more complex than simply accounting for force and length. Other considerations include cross variable forces, angular alignment issues, parasitic forces, and bending moments from an unsupported arm—all of which are common sources of error found in almost every torque calibration setup.
Morehouse has considered these error sources. Our state-of-the-art deadweight torque measurement system is the second-most accurate torque machine in the world. This machine, which was used in CIPM comparisons, is capable of performing calibrations up to 1475 lbf·ft (2000 N·m) with an accuracy of 0.0025 % of applied torque.
NPL has commissioned this machine at our facility in York, PA, making Morehouse the home to the only national torque standard in North America. Morehouse can certify torque equipment, produce results, and eliminate doubt. If you want to verify the accuracy of your torque measurements, Morehouse is ready to provide you with topnotch customer service and torque calibration solutions.
