Torque is a type of radial force that is applied to a material to twist it in a particular direction to a given extent. The torque is applied to the test sample until the sample experience failure or breakage. The testing procedure includes holding the test sample with firm grips so that on the application of the torque the whole sample does not rotate. The testing procedure is mainly used in the packaging industry and bottling plants of drinks and other items like medicines, chemicals, etc. . The test is used to ensure that the caps of the bottle are tight and strong enough to prevent any leakage of the stored liquid packaged in the bottles. The test is conducted on a specially designed testing instrument called torque tester which provides highly accurate data about the strength of the caps placed on the bottles.
Objective of Torque test:
A major objective of performing the torque test is to determine the maximum amount of torque that the cap of a bottle can bear before breakage or failure. The test helps in determining the suitability of a type of cap used on a bottle for a particular purpose.
Presto offers an extremely precise quality testing instrument that offers accurate and accurate data about the twisting strength of the cap of a bottle. The device is very simple to operate and is in adherence to all the international and national standards. With proper torque testing of bottles, it becomes very easy to keep your materials packaged in the bottles safe and free from any leakage.
