The Tornado is a digital torque tester designed to assess the low-level torques associated with small rotating components, from packaging closures to electrical controls, and building hardware to medical devices. The tester features pass/fail alerting with five programmable memory settings, a facility to characterize the two-torque peaks associated with tamper-evident closures, an onboard memory of up to 500 readings and a bi-directional data interface for easy export of results. The tester is appropriate for laboratory or production use, and its water-resistant casing (rated to IP54), fabricated in non-painted polypropylene, makes it suitable for pharmaceutical environments. Four capacity models are available, accommodating delicate to robust assessment applications. An adjustable mounting plate grips the base of a sample, presenting it for application of clockwise or counter-clockwise torque by hand. Five dedicated function keys on the tester’s membrane keypad provide quick access to the most commonly used functions, while a lockable advanced menu navigates its more sophisticated capabilities.
