on tank cap systems
The static torque needed to open and close safety tank cap systems on hazardous material containers (to overcome the catch/retaining force in both directions) is measured under various test criteria.
Various test criteria such as level of soiling, number of open/close operations, gasket seating, etc.
The flange mounted model of the high-precision torque sensor 8625 is very easy to fit in the particular application. The support for the object under test and the weight exerted by the test object are decoupled from the measuring element. Temperature variations arising from ambient conditions and the nature of the hazardous material have only minimal impact on the measurement quality thanks to the wide nominal temperature range.
