How To Use a Torque Tester To Open Threaded Caps?

Many bottles these days come with threaded or screwed caps that are sealed and intact to make sure the contents inside the bottles will not split out. Threaded caps will offer a secure fit to the bottles and even store the products with care. Beyond offering the tightened seals and security of contents inside the bottles, these caps will also serve as a barrier to protect the dirt from getting in. But what if, these caps are loosening and can easily open? This could cause much damage to the product, right? Therefore, we at Presto have designed one of the amazing lab testing instruments known as a torque tester with a printer that is used to measure the torque needed to open or close the threaded bottle caps. Here in this blog, we are going to provide you with information about the bottle cap torque tester and how this lab testing instrument is useful in testing the quality of bottles. So, let us get started!

Introduction about Presto torque tester digital

If you have a bottle with a threaded cap, you may not be worried about the spillage of contents inside the bottle. These caps are sturdy and strong enough to make sure that the bottles will easily withstand damage. But if these bottles are not tightened properly, then it can lead to damage to the product. Thus, we at Presto Testing Instruments have designed torque testing equipment that will help you to test the force needed to open and close the bottle caps with ease.  The digital model of this torque testing instrument has been designed as per industrial standards and comes with a digital display for accurately testing the results of the samples with ease. This torque testing equipment will help to determine the product integrity of the package and provide precise measurement of the torque.

This bottle torque tester is a great way to test the torque required to loosen or tighten threaded cap screws. This lab testing instrument is essential in the bottle testing industry and measures the force needed to open a packaged bottle cap. Below we have listed the features and technical specifications of this testing instrument.

How does the Presto torque tester work?

If you want to test your threaded bottle caps against the opening and closing torque, then you can follow the steps mentioned below.

  • Start the machine by plugging it in a 3 Pin - 5 Amp. Power supply socket and then turn the mains Switch on.
  • The Load indicator might show some readings due to previous test values.
  • Reset the values and set the pressure to Zero. This can be done by pressing the TARE button and then the RESET button and the load indicator will show zero readings.
  • Place the specimen accurately in such a way that it is perfectly straight and touches all four pegs at a given time.
  • After placing the specimen, tighten the jaw adjusting knob properly by revolving it in a clockwise direction.
  • Once all the steps, will be followed, then you can easily commence the test.

In this way, you can easily conduct the torque test on threaded bottle caps. You can also read about the things that you should know before using a torque testing machine.
