Responsive image

PET bottles are widely used in the packaging industry to pack certain beverages, food items, etc. Testing the closing and opening of torque of these bottles will help the manufacturers of the bottle industry to accurately determine the quality of products. Thus, to make it easy for the manufacturers to conduct the torque test on the bottles, we at Testronix have designed one of the high-quality lab testing equipment known as torque tester digital. This easy-to-operate lab testing instrument has been designed with the latest technology to accurately determine the opening and closing torque of bottles with ease. Here in this blog, we are going to provide you with information about the Testronix torque tester and how this lab testing instrument is used to conduct the torque test on PET bottles. So, let us get started!

What is the need of testing the torque of PET bottle caps?

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles are becoming increasingly popular, mainly because they are recyclable and more durable. Testing PET bottles is important in order to ensure that the product is safe for consumption. When it comes to quality, then the bottle caps play a significant role in determining the PET bottle quality.

A loose bottle cap will lead to spillage of contents, while a tightened bottle cap will make it difficult for the users to open the bottles with ease. Therefore, it is important for PET bottle manufacturers to test the quality of their bottle caps and take care of the opening and closing torque of these caps, in order to ensure quality.

Thus, we at Testronix Testing instruments have manufactured a torque tester for PET bottles that will help you to conduct the torque test with ease. This amazing lab testing instrument will help the manufacturers of the PET bottle industry to accurately test the torque value needed to open and close the PET bottle with ease. You can even conduct the torque test of multi-way plastic bottles with the help of this lab testing instrument. Now, let us discuss brief information about the Testronix torque tester.

Introduction about Testronix torque tester digital model

The Testronix torque tester digital model is one of the highly efficient lab testing instruments that has been made to test the closing and opening torque of bottles with ease. This amazing lab testing equipment has been designed with the latest cutting-edge technology that will help the manufacturers to determine the opening and closing torque of the materials.

When you test the torque of PET bottles, with the use of this lab testing instrument, then you will be able to get the test results displayed on the digital display.

This compact and lightweight testing instrument come with an adjustable clamping system to hold bottles of different sizes. This will help the manufacturers of the bottle industry, to deliver high-quality products to the customers.

This testing instrument will allow the manufacturers to take 9 sample readings that will be saved and can be displayed on the digital layout. This testing instrument can also be used to test the opening and closing torque of regular screwed bottles as well.

 How does the torque tester work?

If you want to conduct the torque test using the Testronix torque tester, then you can follow the steps mentioned below.

  • You need to first start the machine by plugging it into a 3-pin- 5amp socket and turn the main switch ON.

  • Once you turn the machine ON then you need to set the pressure to zero. Press the TARE button and press the RESET button. This will lead the indicator to show zero readings.
  • Once you follow these steps, then place the specimen accurately in such a way that it is perfectly straight and touches all four pegs at a given time.
  • When the specimen will accurately be placed, then you need to tighten the jaw adjusting knob properly by revolving it in a clockwise direction.
  • When you follow the above-mentioned steps then you can easily commence the test.

In this way, you can accurately measure the torque value of the PET bottle caps.
