||The Spring Torque Tester
The Secure Pak Spring Torque Tester is designed to control cap tightness an essential factor in bottling operations:
- When caps are not applied tightly enough, leakage or evaporation of product may occur.
- When caps are applied too tightly, molded closures may be susceptible to breakage, or the caps may be difficult to remove.

- The MR model has an indicator on the removal side only.

For an upcharge, we can furnish these testers with a Teflon finish on all exposed metal parts. This provides a hard, wear-resistant, anti-stick, permanently lubricated surface that will resist chipping, cracking, flaking, and peeling. This Teflon coating will protect the tester from damage by most chemicals, ingredients, and solvents.
We sell Calibration Kits, or we calibrate and repair testers when they are shipped to us at Secure Pak, 3630 Rockland Circle, Millbury, OH 43447, along with a letter of instruction requesting the work.
