Accuracy of 3%: This means that if the tool is set at 5 in-lbs then the tool can reach torque between 4.85 in-lbs and 5.15 in-lbs. This torque range falls within the 3% accuracy and would meet our specifications.

Auto Shut Off Clutch: This clutch will shut the tool off automatically when the preset torque value has been reached.

Balancers: This device suspends the tool above the operator and allows the operator to pull the tool down when required and when the tool is released it will pull the tool up and away.

Bi-Directional: This means that the torque tool can be operated in either a left or right hand direction and still have the clutch click out when torque value is reached.

Certificate of Calibration: This certificate, when requested with a tool that has been preset to a specific torque value, certifies that the tool will operate within the confines of the set torque value and accuracy.

cfm: Cubic feet per minute.

Clutch: This device allows any tool whether electric or pneumatic to drive a screw down to a precise torque value consistently.

Cushion Clutch: This clutch will make a chattering or racheting sound which tells the operator when the preset torque value has been reached.

dBA: Decibel rating with the range being 0(good) to 130(bad).

Exhaust Hose: This plastic hose is used to shield any excess oil which might be ejected through the exhaust port of the air tool from any material an operator might be working on.

Hard Joint: The torque that is required to fasten down a machine screw into a pre-threaded hole.

in-lbs: Abbreviation for inch pounds of torque.

in-oz: Abbreviation for inch ounces of torque.

Kg: Abbreviation for kilogram(s) of weight.

lbs: Abbreviation for pound(s) of weight.

Line Filter: This filter, which is placed on the air line feeding into the air tool, will filter out the excess water in the air line. The line filter is the "F" in the FRL abbreviation.

Line Lubricator: This lubricator, which is placed on the air line feeding into the air tool, will add oil to the air line which helps lubricate the tool. The lubricator is the "L" in the FRL abbreviation.

mm: Abbreviation for millimeters.

Non-Rotating Finder: This finder is placed on the end of a pneumatic screwdriver so that the finder will cover the head of the screw while being fastened down. This helps prevent the screwdriver bit from walking off the head of the screw and marring the finish.

NPT: Abbreviation for national pipe thread.

Powder Coat: This particular type of finish means that the material to be painted is covered with a dry power paint which is then heated to a point where it melts all over the material covering it evenly and leaving a durable hard glossy coat.

PSIG: Abbreviation for pounds per square inch gauge.

Quick Change Bit Holder: This type of bit holder allows the operator to replace the screwdriver bit quickly.

Quick Disconnect: These devices allow the operator to quickly disconnect an air line from a tool will the air pressure is still on without any repercussions.

Regulator: This device, which is placed on the air line feeding into the air tool, regulates the air pressure going into the tool. The regulator is the "R" in the abbreviations FRL.

RPM: Abbreviation for revolutions per minute.

Snap-in Bit Holder: This type of bit holder is designed to keep the bit firmly secure and is not easily removed except with hand tools.

Soft Joint: The torque that is required to fasten down a self tapping screw or a screw with washers and a nut.

Torque: A turning or twisting force required to fasten down a screw.

Torque Range: The high and low settings of a clutch or the range of setting with the accuracy included.

Vacuum Transducer Assembly: This devices creates a vacuum chamber when air is applied at one end of the device while exiting at the other end. There are no mechanical or electrical devices used to create the vacuum, just the laws of physics.
