Torque Tension
Often torque is incorrectly used as an indicator that sufficient bolt tension CO Y
has been achieved. Since torque is the twisting force or effort it takes to
ST I T
spin a nut along the threads of a bolt, it is adversely affected by friction.
You can use up plenty of torque while installing a bolt and never tighten it

properly. Factors common to job sites - dirt, dust, heat, rust, rain, condensa-
tion, poor storage, damaged threads, or poor lubrication - will consume

available torque and leave bolts loose, compromising structural design.

DTIs are Mechanical Load Cells


As mechanical load cells, Direct Tension Indicators (DTIs) indicate tension
using bump compression generated directly during tightening independent
of torque. Since the bumps must physically compress under actual clamp
load, DTIs are the only tensioning method verifying that bolts have achieved Calibrated

DuraSquirt DTIs
As an improvement to the DTI design, DuraSquirt DTIs indicate bolt
tension visually, without feeler gages. DuraSquirt DTIs allow for 100% easy
inspection when installed in accordance with the Research Council on
Structural Connections (RCSC) Specification for Structural Joints Using tension all bolts the same makes inspection visual
