Top 3 advantages of using torque tester for bottle caps

Bottle caps are important for PET bottles because they protect the contents from getting spilled out. Without bottle caps, the PET bottle would deteriorate quickly, emitting harmful chemicals into the air. It is important for PET bottle manufacturers to conduct the torque test on PET bottle caps and ensure that they are strong enough to get opened easily. To make it easy for PET bottle manufacturers, we at Presto have designed one of the high-quality lab testing instruments known as a torque tester for bottle caps. This is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that has been designed by the experts at Presto to test the torque needed to determine the threaded or screwed bottle caps or similar containers. Here in this blog, we will discuss the advantages of using Presto torque tester in the PET bottle industry. But first, we will discuss brief information about how you can easily conduct torque tests on bottle caps with the Presto torque tester. So, let us get started!

What is a torque tester and how to conduct a torque test using it?

We all know that a loose bottle cap will cause much damage to the product as it will lead to product spillage from the bottles. Thus, it is very important for the PET bottle manufacturer to conduct the test on the PET bottles, so as to deliver accurate products to the customers. Thus, we at Presto have come up with one of the highly efficient lab testing instruments known as the torque tester digital model which has been designed in accordance with industry standards and made with mild steel to ensure that the users can easily make use of this lab testing instrument for the longer time. We at Presto is a leading manufacturer of torque testing machine and provide this high-quality lab testing equipment at the best and most affordable prices.

This torque testing machine has been provided with a digital display for the accuracy and repeatability of test results. We will also provide an in-house calibration facility for this testing equipment and ensure that the test results will always be accurate.

To conduct the torque test on PET bottle caps, you can follow the steps mentioned below.

  • To conduct the torque test accurately, you need to start the machine by plugging it in a 3 Pin - 5 Amp. Power supply socket. 14
  • Click on Monitor from the main screen, then the test screen will appear.
  • Set the test display to zero and place the specimen accurately on this lab testing instrument.
  • After placing the specimen, tighten the jaw adjusting knob properly by revolving it in a clockwise direction.
  • When the specimen will be placed accurately then you can easily commence the test with the digital panel embedded in this lab testing instrument.

You can also read brief information about how you can easily operate the Presto torque tester and get reliable test results.

Top 3 advantages of torque tester for PET bottles

Torque testing is an important part of the quality control process that will help the manufacturers of the PET bottle industry to conduct torque tests on products. This lab testing instrument plays a vital role in the bottle testing industry and helps to make sure that the product will be accurately delivered to the customers. This testing equipment serves is advantageous to PET bottle manufacturers and helps them to conduct the torque test with ease. Below we have listed the advantages of using the Presto torque tester:

  • The Presto torque tester has been made in accordance with industry standards that will help the manufacturers to conduct the torque test accurately and get precise testing results.
  • Another main advantage of using a torque tester is that when the opening and closing torque is measured in the bottle caps, then it will be easy for the manufacturers to prevent any further accidents while delivering the products. Testing the torque will let the manufacturers make sure that their bottles should be accurate enough to be used for intended applications.
  • By knowing the torque strength of the products the manufacturers can accurately determine the weak points of the product and can improve the quality of the product before delivering it to the customers.

These are the top 3 advantages you will get with the use of the Presto torque tester.
