Install the dust cap on the Phase I rotatable adaptor.
Install the Torque Test Tool on the dust cap as shown in Figure 2.
Verification of rotation, conducted prior to the static torque test.
Place a socket
wrench with socket extension (if required) into the Torque Test Tool, or equivalent. Rotate the adaptor a minimum of 360 degrees. Do not continue with static torque measurements if the adaptor does not rotate 360 degrees. Record the result on the data sheet where provided.
Install the Torque Wrench into the Torque Test Tool. If the spill container is too deep to allow connection of the Torque Wrench, use a compatible socket extension to
reach into the bucket to the Torque Test Tool. exceed 12 inches in length.
The socket extension shall not
Place one hand on top of the Torque Wrench, directly above the center of the Torque Test Tool to keep the wrench level while applying pressure. Gently apply an even, steady pressure just until the adaptor begins to rotate. Record the maximum static torque value shown on the torque wrench and proceed to 7.6.
After the first measurement, slowly rotate the adaptor one third of full rotation (120 degrees) from the point that the first measurement was taken. Using the same technique as described in 7.5, measure and record the second torque measurement.
Following the first two measurements, slowly rotate the another one third of full rotation (120 degrees) from the second measurement location. Using the same technique as specified in 7.5, measure and record the third torque measurement. Rotating the adaptor in one-third increments ensures that the average static torque is representative of the entire adaptor rotation.
Remove the Torque Test Assembly and replace the appropriate lids on each of the spill containers.
Remove the traffic cones from the Phase I area.
Calculate the arithmetic average of the three tests for each adaptor record the average for each adaptor on the data sheet where provided.
