Torque Tester TS 500

Manual, mobile closure torque measuring

In the food & beverage industry, the opening torque of bottles and other containers with twist-off closures is an important quality parameter and vital for customer satisfaction.

For many routine tests, where neither precise reproducibility nor special test procedures are necessary, a manually operated torque measuring device is a sensible and favorable solution. The mobile TS 500 is a simple mechanic torque tester for quick checks on closures or closing machinery.

Operation:

  • The container is hold vertically with one hand and manually opened with the other hand.
  • Meanwhile, the reactive torque is monitored and its peak value displayed afterwards.
  • In case of using as a checking tool for the closing heads the closure chuck is replaced against a real closure and hold into the closing heads for checking of the torque settings.
  • Measuring of the closing torque is also possible.
