cap torque testerDepending on your testing needs, you might require a product that will allow you the flexibility to test a wide range of products. However, there are other instances when more specific types of testing are needed to ensure accurate and repeatable results. The Series TT01 Cap Torque Tester from Mark-10, one of the leading brand names in the force measurement industry, is designed to measure the application and removal torque of a bottle cap, providing measurements between 12 pounds of force per inch on up to 100 pounds of force per inch. With lots of great features and options, these torque instruments from Mark-10 are extremely valuable to any business that works with bottle caps. The TT01 bottle top testers and cap torque testers are available in multiple capacity ranges from CSC Force Measurement.

Class-Leading Accuracy

Many of our clients choose to work solely with Mark-10 products, as they have a solid reputation in the force measurement industry for providing accurate and repeatable results. The adjustable posts of the Mark-10 Cap Torque Tester is designed to effectively grip onto a broad range of container shapes and sizes. Optional flat and adjustable jaws can also be used to accommodate unique container profiles. With a rugged aluminum design and simple, easy-to-use operation for intuitive use in both laboratory and production environments, it is easy to see why these cap torque testers lead their class for accuracy and speed.

According to the manufacturer, the Mark-10 bottle top testers have an accuracy rating of +/- 0.3 percent and an extremely quick sampling rate of 7,000 Hz. Operators who require fast and reliable results, as well as quick-action applications, can rely on these torque instruments to achieve all of their goals. Built-in password protection is provided with the Mark-10 Cap Torque Tester to prevent accidental or unauthorized changes to the unit’s settings and calibration. CSC Force Measurement can provide an ISO 17025 calibration certificate with data with purchase in addition to the manufacturer’s NIST-traceable certificate of calibration, which comes with the instrument.

Cap Torque Tester Features

The Mark-10 Cap Torque Tester includes a range of sophisticated features to enhance productivity, including outputs for analog, USB, RS-232, and Mitutoyo, as well as automatic data output and zeroing upon cap removal. Take advantage of memory storage with a capacity of up to one thousand readings, as well as pass/fail indicators and outputs and other beneficial features. First/second peak, torque detection, and programmable set point indicators are also helpful for measuring things like slip and breakaway torques for tamper-evident closures. Configurable audio alarms and key tones, as well as five distinct units of measurement, including ozFin, InFin, kgFcm, and Ncm, make these bottle top testers even more valuable and flexible.

The unit is powered either by AC or a rechargeable battery, making it portable and easy to use almost anywhere. A multi-step low battery indicator is displayed, and the gauge shuts off automatically when the power gets to be too low. The battery life is up to 7 hours of continuous use with the backlight on and up to 24 hours of constant use with the backlight set to off. For general purposes, the USB output allows for three open drain outputs and one input, while set points allow for three open drain lines. Digital filters, outputs, automatic output, data storage, zero, automatic shutoff, default settings, key tones, backlight, audio alarms, passwords, and calibration are some of the other configurable settings.
