Mecmesin Tornado Digital Torque Tester
Tornado Technical Specifications
Tamper - evident Closure Testing
The tornado allows you to characterise the two critical torque peaks associated with tamper - evident closures; slip torque. Effort required to initiate movement of the cap, and bridge torque. The smaller secondary peak associated with the effort required to break the plastic bridges between the cap and the security ring.
Four Capacity Models
The capacity of your digital torque tester should reflect the torque range of your application. If it is too low, the torque transducer risks being overloaded, whereas if it is too high, the transducer may not be sufficiently sensitive to accurately detect small peak loads. The tornado offers four capacity models, a 1.5N.m option for delicate assessments and 3N.m, 6N.m and 10N.m capacity models for increasingly robust applications.
Tolerance bands for acceptable torque measurements may be pre-defined, and pass/fail parameters established. Five independent settings can then be stored. LED indicators or an audible alarm (or both) then clearly identify samples that do not conform to your exact requirements.
On - board Memory
The tornado can store up to 500 readings in its internal memory, allowing you to perform many tests in quick succession, and then view or export the result at a later time convenient to you.
