PET bottles are widely used in different industries to deliver materials easily to customers. When the packaging manufacturers deliver the bottles to the customers, then it is important for them to make sure that bottles should be tested for top loads in order to stack them accurately without getting any damage. Thus, it is important for the manufacturers to conduct the top load test on PET bottles to make sure that the right products will be delivered to the customers. We at Testronix have designed a highly standardized lab testing instrument known as a top load tester. This amazing testing equipment has been designed to accurately test the crushing load strength of the materials with ease.

If the bottles are not as strong as they should be, they may break during transportation or when they are being consumed. The Testronix top load tester provides a quick and accurate way to measure the strength of a bottle by testing its crushing load. Here in this blog, we will discuss brief information about top load tester and how you can easily conduct the test using Testronix top load tester.

What is a Top Load Tester and its use in the packaging industry?

Testing the top load strength of the materials helps to ensure that the bottle will be able to withstand load without getting deformed.  The Testronix Top Load Tester is a high-quality lab testing instrument that is used to test the strength of bottles. This testing machine will work by crushing the bottles under a certain amount of pressure. This helps to ensure that the bottles are strong enough to withstand the pressure of being crushed. This testing instrument will accurately analyze the test results.

The Testronix top load tester comes with robust construction to easily conduct the top load test on the material and let users get the testing results accurately. This lab testing instrument also plays a vital role in the PET bottle industry. You can read about the importance of top load tester in the PET bottle industry.

Why you should consider Testronix top load tester?

The top load tester is an essential testing instrument that will be used to test the strength of PET bottles and other packaging materials. By testing your bottles against a crushing load, you can ensure that they will be able to withstand the top load without getting crushed.

The Testronix top load tester has been designed with a corrosion-resistant body to test the quality resilience and compression strength of bottles against top load. Its user-friendly design makes it easy for the manufacturers to conduct the top load strength of PET bottles with ease.

How does the Testronix top load testing instrument works?

If you want to conduct the top load test on PET bottles and other packaging materials, then you can follow the steps mentioned below.

  • This top load testing instrument will be operated by first plugging it into a 5 amp, 220 Volts AC.

  • You can place the specimen accurately on the PET bottles and between the compression plates.
  • Ensure that the bottle is placed in the center of the compression plate for accurate results.
  • Bring lower compression in the upper direction and exert a small preload on the bottle to eliminate any air gap between the compression plate and bottle.
  • When you follow these steps, then you can accurately commence the test.


In this way, you can easily test your product against top load. You can also read about how you can accurately test the top load quality of PET bottles with this testing instrument.
