Top Load Tester

The performance of containers in production and transportation is a matter of concern for a manufacturer. Product ruptures or failures during shipping, packing, warehousing are very costly to bear. But on the same time, it can be prevented if the finished material is tested under top load test. Testing top load strength of a material is an important method to use to determine the required force to produce failure or deformation of containers and bottles. Top load strength also measures the thinned areas in the wall of the bottles that results in poor distribution of wall thickness.

Presto Top Load Tester provides the digital compressive buckling of load. It is a fully automatic motorized representation. The Digital display is highly sophisticated and appealing. The testing instrument offers an easy display to read and equipped with Auto Tare set facility and Peak Hold arrangement. The tester meets Indian and international standards.

Presto offers four models of Top Load Tester namely, Digital, Computerized, Analogue and Top Load Tester For Jars.

Presto’s digital top load tester Digital model is equipped with inverted concave jaws and a load cell. The load sensor of the load cell can be standardized through in-house calibration. The machine works by placing a test specimen between the jaws for zero slippage. The user switches off the machine to view the effect of buckling in the bottle.

Mentioned below are the specification and features of all the models.

  • 1) Top Load Tester – Digital

    • The testing equipment has a capacity of 100 kilogram force.
    • The machine provides the best results with the accuracy of +/-1%
    • The equipment is set on a base plate of rigid metal and finished in Autumn Gray and Blue colored paint with intense chrome plating to provide it a corrosion resistant finish.
    • The instrument is available with calibration certificate along with an instruction manual.


    2) Top Load Tester – Computerized

    This latest fully automatic Computerized Top Load Tester is gaining popularity and is being preferred over the Analog model for evaluation of the compressive buckling load.

    • Type: Table top Model
    • The instrument offers Grip to Grip Separation from 25mm to maximum 350mm.
    • Load Sensor: Universal ‘S’ Type / Pancake Type
    • Load Sensor Accuracy: +0.5% of the Load Cell capacity.
    • The load sensor offers Auto – detect / sensing that can be done through advance electronics
    • Over Load / Travel Safety: Auto stop facility through software: 10% above the load cell capacity / Inbuilt
    • Computer & Printer: Computer and Printer are required to attach to the instrument to analyze the results. The computer is not a part of the offer.
    • It consumes the power 220-240V AC, 50Hz, Single Phase.
    • Company logo, Batch, Lot Number, Date & time and Tested by Details are available in the report, which can be saved in the computer, emailed or printed for ready records.
    • Capacity: 100 Kgf
    • Speed: Fixed

    3) Top Load tester Analogue

    • It is a hand operated model.
    • The instrument used CNC machine guide screws for up and down movements.
    • The load exerted on the specimen is recorded on an analogue needle type scale with a dummy needle 10 record maximum reading.
    • The concave grips of the machines ensures zero slippage while testing.
    • Low maintenance cost is an added advantage of the instrument.
    • It provides maximum compression load up to 100kgf.
    • The specimen with maximum loading height 500mm can be tested by the machine.

    4) Top Load For Jars (PTL 0107)

    • The equipment is very strong fabricated with heavy cast iron base for easy and safe performance.
    • The machine is equipped with a highly sensitive load sensor which is strategically placed to enable perfect corner to corner load results.
    • Platform Size of the machine to place the sample is 600 mm x 600 mm.
    • The machine provides maximum compression Load up to 500kgf.
    • It offers the Least Count of 100 gms.
    • The testing instrument requires power consumption of 1 KW.
    • It is equipped with a motor of 1/4 HP that run on single phase 220V; AC power supply.
    • It is a very useful instrument to test stack ability of the finished PET Jars.
    • The equipment is supplied complete with calibration certificate and instruction manual.

    • The position of the bottle is inverted between two concave jaws for gripping support.
    • Switch off option with the machine after screening buckling in bottles.
    • Equipment supplied along with imported kit support
    • Fully automatic and motorized tester in digital format
    • Option of load sensor calibration.

    I have purchased Top Load Tester from Presto. The instrument is simply amazing. It helped me to test the top load strength of the materials such as PET bottles, cans, containers, etc. It is provided with user-friendly controls. Thank you for the machine, I got the device at my doorstep in good condition. Service of Presto is very good.
