New Quantrol Digital Torque Testing System Offers Greater Accuracy and Portable Testing

Orbis system ideal for spot checking torque closures on bottling lines

Fairmont, MN-August 16, 2004-Quantrol(TM) has announced Orbis, a new line of digital torque testing systems offering repeatable accuracy to 0.5% full scale compared to conventional analog systems that offer far less accuracy- typically 2-3% full scale. In addition, the Orbis system is self-contained and the only portable system, giving users the time-saving flexibility to conduct testing on the production line rather than transporting line samples to a lab for conventional mechanical torque testing.

"Providing an easier-to-use, more accurate solution that helps manufacturers assure the integrity of tamper evident seals and child resistant closures on their packages is our top priority" said Jim Head, BSME, Quantrol. Head added that the Orbis system is a value-priced addition to Quantrol's existing line of Torque Testing Systems that includes Tornado, AFTI Smart Torque Sensors, and Torque Wrench Checker. "The addition of Orbis allows us to offer a wide range of torque testing technology for a broad range of bottling and packaging applications," continued Head.

The Orbis system accommodates sample sizes from 0.4 to 6.3 inches and is capable of capturing dual peak readings-first reporting torque levels at seal break and then at actual opening. Additionally, the system reports slip torque of a seal as well as bridge torque of the cap.

Orbis models are compact and enclosed in a rugged case with a convenient integrated handle for easy transporting at the production line. Features include a back lit display to take readings in dimly lit production areas. A data output function allows torque data to be ported to a PC for collection and analysis.
