CAP TORQUE TEST SYSTEMS

The Cap Inspector may be easily programmed to apply
torque in the opening direction until the breakaway or
peak removal value is reached. It then stops and
reapplies the cap to a set torque level, thus leaving the
seal and product uncompromised.
With the simple touch of a button on the smart screen,
the converted cap inspector can perform 6 different tests:
Bridge Torque - This test determines the rotational force needed to remove a cap and to break the bridges that join the cap to a tamper-evident band on plastic and aluminum caps.
Incremental Torque - This test is used to measure the removal torque of a cap and then reapply the cap to a specific position beyond the original starting position. This test is designed to be a non-destructive test, and prevent leaking problems by reapplying the cap to a secure position.
Removal Torque - A non-destructive test, this is used to determine the peak removal torque of a cap. The removal torque is measured and displayed, and then reapplied to a specific value.
Reverse Ratchet Torque - This test measures the torque required to rotate a child-resistant type cap without engaging the child resistant mechanism (i.e., no vertical down force).
ROPP- This procedure is for testing Roll-On Pilfer Proof type caps. This test method measures the torque required to break the tamper-evident band bridges, and strip threads on ROPP caps.
Strip Torque Test- This test is designed to measure the torque required to strip the threads on any type of cap (torque limits may apply).
