How to use a torque tester like a pro?

In the realm of beverage packaging, it is imperative to maintain the highest standards of quality control and consumer safety. This is precisely why bottle caps should be rigorously tested for torque. The torque refers to the rotational force applied when opening or closing a bottle cap.

By subjecting every single bottle cap to thorough torque testing, manufacturers can ensure that the bottles will not get damaged while shipping or delivery. Thus, we at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as a torque strength tester.

The digital model of the Presto torque tester has been designed as per industry standards that make it easy for the manufacturers to conduct quality tests on the materials. This torque testing instrument is widely used in bottle testing laboratories for conducting quality tests on materials. In this blog, we will discuss a brief torque tester and how you can easily use this testing instrument like a pro.

All about Presto torque tester

The Presto Torque Tester is an advanced bottle-testing instrument specifically designed for measuring the torque or rotational force required to open or close bottle caps, closures, and other screw-on components. It is equipped with strong clamping pegs or holders that provide excellent gripping support, ensuring zero slip during testing.

The digital display feature ensures accurate and repeatable measurements, while the in-house calibration facility allows for precise calibration adjustments.

The adjustable clamping mechanism accommodates various bottle sizes, and the highly accurate torque sensor ensures reliable results.

The LED display is easy to read, and the torque tester also includes a provision to hold peak values in memory. With the ability to save up to 9 sample readings on the digital readout, it offers convenient data storage.

The torque tester is equipped with a safety lock pin to eliminate extra force on the torque sensor, and the digital readout provides a clear view of the sample reading. The Presto Torque Tester is a reliable and user-friendly testing instrument for accurate torque measurement in bottle and closure testing. You can maximize the accuracy in bottle caps with the torque testing process.

Now, let us discuss the features and technical specifications of this quality testing equipment.

Working procedure of Presto torque tester

To conduct torque tests on the materials, manufacturers can easily follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Plug in the mains plug into a 3 Pin - 5 Amp. Power supply socket. Turn the mains switch on & the load indicator might show some readings due to previous test values.
  • After that, you can easily set the pressure to zero by pressing the RESET button.
  • Place the specimen accurately and adjust it according to the size of the specimen.
  • After placing the specimen, tighten the jaw-adjusting knob properly by revolving it in a clockwise direction.
  • Once all will be done, you can easily remove the safety lock pin from the clamping assembly.

In this way, you can easily operate the Presto torque tester.
