The cap tightener (retorquer), model BT-RT

This unit is usually placed after a cap induction sealing machine or to apply a controlled torque on closures previously screwed.

  • The beltorque™, model BT-RT, is an inline cap tightener that uses two (2) sets of belts.
  • The container gripper belts stabilize the containers for the cap tightening operations.
  • The tightening belts apply the final torque to the caps.
  • This equipment may be supplied with several options.

The cap screwer-tightener, model BT-ST

This model is mainly used on semi-automatic line to screw and tighten closures previously placed on the containers.

  • The beltorque™, model BT-ST, is an inline cap screwer-tightener mounted with three (3) sets of belts.
  • The container gripper belts stabilize the containers for the cap screwing and tightening operations.
  • The screwing belts screw the caps.
  • The tightening belts apply the requested final torque to the caps.
  • This equipment may be supplied with several options.

The capper, model BT-IC

This model is fully automatic. It places the cap on the container, screwing the cap and applying a controlled torque on it.

  • Like the BT-ST model, the beltorque™ capper is equipped with three (3) sets of belts. The container gripper belts are much longer than those of the 2 previous models.
  • The container gripper belts stabilize the containers during the capping operation.
  • The screwing belts place and screw the closure on the container.
  • The tightening belts apply the final required torque to the caps.
  • The automatic inline beltorque™ capper is mounted (option):
    • Cap orientor-elevator.
    • Caps chute.
    • Dedicated change parts for final placing and
      tightening of the closures on the container.
  • A PLC monitors the entire capping process and the critical parameters are logged in machine memory via an HMI—also available as an option on models BT-RT and BT-ST.
  • The beltorque™ BT-IC may be supplied with different systems of cap elevator-orienters, depending on the type of closure in use: vibrating bowl, centrifugal orienter, vertical conveyor elevator-orienter.
  • The integrated torque monitoring module (optional) attachment reads and displays the application torque for further evaluation of the product—also available as an option for the BT-RT and BT-ST.
  • A secondary inspection station (optional) verifies the presence of the cap on the container, the presence of the foil, the skewed caps and the lay-down bottles.
