Universal Torque / Force Measuring Instrument


Popular, handheld Torque / Force Meter suitable for many applications in the bottling industry.

Updated version of the ST-H series can be used for up to five different measuring units with different calibration.

Various heads can be fitted to the instrument for different measurements.

The versatility of this handheld instrument allows you to perform both production and laboratory Quality Assurance torque and force testing checks.

  • Beverage factories
  • Bottling plants

3 Points on Torque Testing

The release torque of a closure can vary between 50% and 150% of the application torque, depending on the neck and the closure.

A Torque Tester in the bottling industry measures the opening and closing torque of bottle caps, screw caps and other closures. Even child-resistant caps can be measured!

DEFINITION: Torque is a measure of how much a force acting on an object causes that object to rotate.

Measuring Heads available:

  • ST-H-C: Chuck Torque Calibrator – measure the capper machine’s application torque directly on the machine, no need to disassemble the machine
  • ST-H-T: Topload Force Unit – measure the capper machine’s heads’ downward spring force (top load) directly on the capper machine, without the disassembly of the chucks
  • ST-H-D: Desktop Unit – allows the instrument to be used as a normal manual cap torque tester to release the closure torque on the bottles
