Tornado Torque Tester

Tornado manually operated digital closure tester offers a simple solution to torque assessment. 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 & bridge torque – the smaller secondary peak associated with the effort required to break the plastic bridges between the cap and the security ring.

The Tornado offers four capacity models:
– for delicate assessments – 1.5 N.m capacity
– for increasingly robust applications – 3 N.m, 6 N.m and 10 N.m capacity

The Tornado enable a broad variety of advanced additional functions, to offer enhanced practicality and versatility.
