DTX2 Cap Torque Tester


Series DTX2

The DTX2 Cap Torque Tester is ideal for measuring cap tightening and loosening torque up to 85 lbf-in. The movable pegs on the base of the tester can accommodate a wide range of containers and bottles up to 7 inches in diameter.

Imada’s cap torque tester offers programmable high/low setpoints for go/no-go testing. ORANGE lights up for measurements less than Low setpoint, GREEN for between High and Low setpoint, and RED for over High setpoint.

Easily Set Up Go/No Go tests

Use the real time mode to display torque transients, or the peak mode to capture the peak torque of a test. Selectable measuring units of lbf-in, kgf-cm, or N-cm. The DTX2 series has programmable high/low setpoints to enable go/no-go testing. 3 indicator lights inform the user where the current torque reading is in relation the the setpoints. YELLOW lights up for measurements less than Low setpoint, GREEN for between High and Low setpoints, and RED for over High setpoint and testing automatically stops.

Store up to 1,000 values in memory, which can be transmitted to a pc using RS-232 output.  The DTX2 is compatible with Imada’s SW-1 Data Acquisition Spreadsheet.

All DTX2 cap torque tester include a 3 Point Certificate traceable to NIST. DTX2 cap torque testers include AC adapter/charger and built-in Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, 1″ high standard pegs (optional long pegs and calibration kit available).
