Torque Measurement Applications for the Food and Beverage Industry

When it comes to the manufacturing and distribution of food and beverages, both safety and accessibility must be thoroughly established before anything reaches retailer shelves or customer hands. The ripeness of fruit, the amount of pressure it takes to open a bottle of soda and more all need to be tested by cutting-edge technology to ensure and maintain appropriate pressure requirements.

At Cooper Instruments & Systems, we have a fully stocked inventory of load cells with a wide range of capacities from 0-10 grams to 0-3 million pounds. You’ll also find test stands, scales, force gauges and any other force testing equipment you need no matter what sector of the food and beverage industry you’re in.

We’re an authorized distributor for Mark-10 products — made entirely in the U.S. — that allow force and torque measurement applications of almost any kind:

  • Bottle cap torque testing: Find out how much pressure it takes to twist the cap off a bottle of soda or other beverage, for example, so you have a safe and accessible product without too much required force.
  • Bottle cap pull-off force testing: Protect your reputation and stay sure your pull-off cap beverages are accessible.
  • Top load testing: Assess the top load force of products and containers like stacked cartons and keep your products and environment safe.
  • Burst testing: Determine the strength and resilience of your food, beverages and packaging before they reach the distribution stage.
  • Crush testing: Determine ripeness, readiness for consumption, durability and more for any number of consumables.
