The Torqo 1600 Accessories

The Torqo 1600 is easy to use, easy to set up, easy to move and low maintenance! Tooling is available for any threaded closure – including child resistant caps – and this compact unit delivers and stores precise results at the touch of a button.

It now comes pre-equipped with Universal Torqo Chuck, As an increased variety of closure designs have gained prominence and popularity in the industry, Mesa Labs has developed a new Universal Chuck to accommodate multiple serration patterns and cap sizes with a single change part.

The torqo can be fitted with the all new Model 1506 Beverage Bottle Clamp is a quick-acting bottle holding device that can be easily adjusted to accommodate from 10 oz. to 3 liter bottle sizes.

The Model 1624 Quick Clamp Vise is an easy to use bottle holding fixture that combines the flexibility of a lead screw pin vise with the rapid loading and unloading of an over-center type clamp. This vise is capable of holding round bottles from 5/8-inch diameter to 6 inch diameter and square bottles from 5/8-inch to 6 inch. Short and long pins are available.

The 1626 Slide Chuck can be used to torque test roll-on-pilfer proof (ROPP) caps which are commonly used to package product in the alcoholic beverage and wine industries. The unique jaw sets allow the chuck to grip the rolled on serration patterns of the cap in order to perform both destructive and non-destructive torque testing.

The Yoke Chuck extends our testing capabilities beyond the average continuous thread and Child-Resistant closures. This chuck can accommodate unusually tall and odd-shaped closures such as finger tip sprayers/pumps and trigger sprayers/pumps which are commonly used in the pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic industries. The unique interchangeable jaw sets allow the chuck to grip virtually any serration patterns for cap diameters up to ~100mm.

With a 1507 Calibration Kit, the accuracy of your Torqo can be verified or a complete on-site calibration can be performed by the user. Contained in this kit is a precision Calibration Disk, a ball bearing load support assembly and the necessary hardware to use this kit. The weights required for performing a calibration are not included in the kit but may be purchased from Mesa Laboratories, Inc.

And one of the most demanded Torqo Accessories is the Child Resistant Closure Option.

The Model 1605 Child Resistant Closure Option enables the Torqo to be used for measuring the removal torque on the child-resistant type cap that requires a downforce in order to be opened. An air supply with the ability to provide a minimum of 60 PSI is required for this option. Both an air filter and an adjustable air regulator are contained in this kit and permanently mounted to the drive cover. The installation of this option on a Torqo does not affect in any way its use on conventional bottles and caps.

To find out more about the Torqo 1600 or the available accessories, please give us a call at 800-829-5741.

Bahnson Stability Chambers

Bahnson Environmental Specialties have developed a clever solution to meet your chamber volume and mobility needs.

The precise air control system ensures conditioned air to be distributed uniformly across your product shelves. A stainless steel impeller moves the air through the air conditioning components within the enclosed plenum. Air is then distributed and returned through the plenum’s side wall ports which are specifically arranged for maximum uniformity and efficient thermal transfer.

The conditioning system features:

  • Temperature control within +/- 0.2 C
  • Relative Humidity control to +/- 0.7% RH

All models in the ES2000 series provide precise control of temperature and humidity. The chambers feature full stainless steel liner conditioning system cover, and air walls. Solid, reinforced stainless steel shelves are easily removable and repositionable.

Elevators and Lowerators

Vetromeccanica Elevator – Lowerator: The Optimal Solution for a Gentle Handling of Containers!

Many automated floor conveyor systems need to operate continuously on more than one floor of a warehouse or factory building. A means of raising or lowering product loads between different elevations of the conveyor system is therefore required, often within very restricted floor space. Elevators and lowerators are an efficient means of achieving this.

ST-120S Industrial Cap Torque Tester

The ST-120S features a servo drive control, infinite chuck rotation, quick-change tooling, a color touchscreen interface, and faster cycle times.

The corrosion-resistant stainless steel head enclosure and anodized aluminum frame construction makes the ST-120S ideally suited for the most demanding applications, such as testing closure torque at Carbonated Soda Drink (CSD), juice, bleach bottling operations as well as cleanroom environments.

The unit is equipped with anti-bridging, anti-tie down anti-repeat dual actuation safety start switches, but for maximum operator safety, the ST-120S can be also equipped with a full machine guard.

Applied Torque: The ST-120 can be used as a benchtop capper, tightening the cap to a customer-defined setpoint.

Release Torque: The ST-120 is designed to accurately measure the release (thread break) torque of a cap.

Peak/Transient Torque: The standard ST-120 can measure and display the Applied or Release Peak in a torque testing cycle, however with optional hardware upgrades it is also possible to measure certain torque transients such as the engagement torque of a CR closure system or the peak of the bridge break torque of a Tamper Evident Band.

Container/Closure Fatigue: By allowing the ST-120 to apply and release the cap a number of times, it is possible to evaluate the effect of fatigue on the torque retention and seal quality of the closure and seal.

Release and Re-apply Torque: When packaging expensive products it is often required to return the tested container to the packaging line. By automatically re-applying the torque to the operator defined setpoint it is possible to save the product.

Topload Force (optional): This feature allows the monitoring and control of the top load force. When testing child-resistant caps or other closures requiring top load adjustment this feature allows the evaluation of top load force in the function of rotation and torque.

The S-120 comes equipped with the following features:

  • Real-time, automatic display
  • NIST traceable calibration procedure
  • Strain gauge transducer technology
  • Automatic container clamping and closure gripping
  • Adjustable torque application speed
  • Counterbalance system for height adjustment
  • Infinite rotation (SERVO)
