Torus’ Semi-Automatic Top Load Gauge has been developed to provide a solution for both vertical and horizontal strength. 

Key Benefits

  • Tests adhere to ASTM D2659
  • Side Load (Horizontal Load) testing functionality. 
  • Scan until dip functionality to stop test once elastic limit is passed to reduce cycle time. 
  • Bench mounted for laboratory environments, hardened for shop floors, with optional workbenches provided by Torus.
  • CSV data output and flexible formatting for input into local data handling / control systems at customers facility. 
  • Remote Support Package, which includes automatic gauge monitoring and reporting back to Torus for proactive response. 

Top Load testing is complete on empty containers, or filled and capped containers, providing a basic range of test capability to customers. Compression speeds and deflection distances for load testing are fully programmable, with an optional scan-until-dip parameter to stop the test once elastic limit is passed, reducing cycle time. 

Torus has recently released the Side Load test function which can be completed on both empty and filled containers, providing the critical information in horizontal load testing. 

Graphical display of Load vs Deflection live on screen throughout test cycle with final graphical report available with CSV Data output.
