Built for pipeliners and related industries by a pipeliner, Torque Advisor not only lists the appropriate torquing sequence for flanges up to 52 holes, but it also dictates the numbers to you using the Text-To-Speech feature on your Android-powered device. No looking back and forth between the torquing chart and the flange as you number the holes, and it can be done quickly and easily by a single person. You can also adjust the delay between reading of the numbers to provide extra time to work your way around larger flanges.
You would use the app just like any torque sequence chart: Start numbering the holes or studs at one position and then work your way around (clockwise or counterclockwise) in the order presented. When ready to torque the studs, follow the numbers as you go.
The app also contains recommended ft-lb torque values for various sizes of studs and lubricants.
Torque Advisor is currently available in many countries and in many different languages. If you would like to help translate it into another language (or have suggestions for improving an existing translation), please contact me.
While torquing order/sequence is relatively standard, the torque specs (in foot-pounds in the app) for various stud sizes and lubrication types may be different from what you or your company use. If this is the case and you would like something more tailored to your needs, please feel free to contact me and I can work with you to provide you with an app that uses the exact specs you require.
