Series TT03C

Cap Torque Gauges

Series TT03C digital cap torque gauges are quick and economical solutions for basic handheld cap torque testing. These portable instruments eliminate the need to secure closures in a fixture or more elaborate testing system. A dedicated remote torque sensor with Jacobs chuck is supplied with a universal grip for caps from 0.65 - 1.55 in (16.5 - 39.4 mm) diameter.

The gauges include MESUR® Lite data acquisition software, for tabulation of continuous or individual data points. One-click export to Excel allows for further data manipulation.

Series TT03C gauges consist of a Series TT03 torque gauge and G1053 cap grip.
