SI Instruments have developed the HLT 5000 head load tester in response to the demand from the wine industry for achieving consistent screw cap closure torque.
With a capacity of 5kN (500 kg or 1,100 lbs), it is designed to accurately measure the adjustable head or top load pressure of capping head machinery.
The HLT 5000 head load tester is supplied with an alloy base and two alloy spacers, catering for 750ml bottle heights. Further adjustment is possible in the fine adjustment underneath the stainless steel BVS head.
The hand held digital readout is powered with rechargeable NiMHd batteries and has an LCD display that is adjustable to show N, kg or lbs.
The ‘Peak Hold’ function shows accurate head set pressure. The unit can store upper and lower limits with an instantaneous red light/green light LED indicator. The unit is supplied in a durable carrying case and includes a 240 volt power supply/charger.
