How much torque to apply when installing induction cables

Torque Values Table

Often we’re asked for recommendations when tightening or loosening fittings on an induction power cable. First, this is a job for two wrenches! And, depending on your connection, be sure to avoid tightening or loosening soldered pipe threads.

Here is the procedure for applying torque to standard 37-degree flared tube connections.

  1. Assemble components hand tight.
  2. Tighten the nut lightly with a wrench (approximately 30 inch-pounds.) This is the WR (wrench resistance) position.
  3. From the WR position, tighten the nut further using the number of flats recommended from the table graphic. Note: One flat is equal to 1/6 of a turn.
