Choosing the Right Torque Wrench for Your Needs

Author: Time:2023-07-25 Tag: Torque Wrench Hydraulic Torque Wrenches


When working in an environment where compressed air is not readily available, 

it is important to consider other options for powering torque tools. 

For example, pneumatic torque wrenches may not be a suitable option for use inside a factory setting.

However, a hydraulic wrench can be an excellent choice for remote locations, 

such as in refineries or on pipelines, 

as they are more portable and can operate without requiring an external power source.


In high-cycle applications, fast tools are essential for maintaining productivity and efficiency. 

Pneumatic Torque Wrenches are known for their fast rotational speed

and are often preferred in product assembly applications, such as on automotive production lines. 

They feature a low-friction planetary gearbox that helps to minimize wear and extend uptime.

If compressed air is already present, pneumatic torque wrenches 

are generally a more economical choice than hydraulic ones.

Unlike Hydraulic Torque Wrenches, they don't require a separate pump and rely instead 

on the infinite power source of compressed air. 

This can make them a more cost-effective option, provided that a compressed air line is available.


When it comes to accuracy, hydraulic torque wrenches typically have the edge over their pneumatic counterparts. 

They can provide accuracies of +/- 3%, 

which is higher than the average accuracy of +/- 5% found in pneumatic models. 

However, for most assembly work, the accuracy provided by pneumatic torque wrenches is generally sufficient.

Convenience and Ease of Use

One of the major advantages of pneumatic torque wrenches is their relative simplicity compared to hydraulic models. 

They rely on an airline for power, which means that there is no need for a separate hydraulic pump or specialized oil.

Additionally, they can often be operated by a single operator,

whereas hydraulic wrenches may require an additional technician to operate the controls at the pump or pendant. 

Overall, these factors contribute to a more convenient and hassle-free experience when using pneumatic torque wrenches.

In conclusion, the choice between pneumatic and hydraulic torque wrenches depends on several factors.

Both types of wrenches have their advantages and disadvantages,

and it is important to weigh these factors carefully before making a decision.
