Our new video offers step-by-step instruction on how to use the MultiTest-xt touch-screen top-load tester.
It shows just how easy it is to carry out top-load tests on bottles with this new testing system from Mecmesin.
Top-load testing’s important because during filling, capping and stacking, containers can be subjected to considerable vertical loading which causes loss of strength and eventual collapse.
The video shows how simple it is to load a bottle and clamp it into place. An icon is then selected on the touch-screen, the test method is chosen and one button launches the test. The touch-screen displays an easy-to-read overall “pass” or “fail” result. The results or raw data can then be exported directly to Microsoft Excel.
There’s a vented compression plate which allows air to escape during compression and bottle height can be measured at the same time.
A batch of ten bottles can be tested in about two minutes.
