Advantages and disadvantages of Hydraulic Torque Wrenches
When choosing your torque wrench, the choice is between hydraulic or pneumatic. There are pros and cons to both so make sure you make the right decision for the job you are working on.
There are many advantages of hydraulic torque wrenches:
- They are portable, so you can take them to remote locations
- They are quieter than pneumatic torque wrenches
- Usually +/- 3% accuracy compared to pneumatic at +/- 5%
- 6 times more powerful than a similar-sized pneumatic torque wrench
You also need to take into account the disadvantages:
- They are slower than pneumatic torque wrenches
- It may require more than one operator
- Separate equipment is required
