A Wireless Torque for positive indication of anchor holding capacity in any soil type. Featured

Written by  TheStructuralEngineer.info

Using the CHANCE® Wireless Torque Indicator from Hubbell, you can install screw anchors to a pre-determined torque value which gives a positive indication of anchor holding capacity in any soil type. This tool also helps your crew avoid excessive torsional loading which could cause damage to the anchor and/or anchor tools during installation.

 The Indicator mounts between the Kelly bar adapter and drive tool or locking dog assembly. The LCD display is easy to read in full daylight and gives the operator a direct readout of installation torque at all times.
