The new CAP-T Cap Torque Tester accurately measures twist-off and twist-on force. The CAP-T is an ideal tester for bottlers, food and beverage companies, and others who need to measure closure torque. The tester features a solid aluminum housing and rugged construction for many years of service in laboratory or production environments. Adjustable posts effectively grip a broad range of container shapes and sizes, while a set of optional jaws are available as an alternative gripping method. The CAP-T closure torque meter captures peak torque in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions for application and removal measurements.

The CAP-T-RS offers a data output button for easy transferring of the current reading to a PC or Printer for quality reporting.
