February 28, 2018, Lakewood, Colorado – As of December 31, 2017, Mesa Labs discontinued the production of the Automatic Torque Tester Model ST-S3. Mesa Labs will continue to accept RMAs for service and calibration for an additional five years until December 31, 2023.
As a replacement for the ST-S3, we recommend the ST-120S and the ST-120S NEMA. Both models offer similar capabilities regarding capacity, topload control and monitoring, PLC and servo control. However, the ST-120S / NEMA models offer an increased capacity for container sizes as well as the NEMA rated enclosure option is recommended for washdown/corrosive environments.
All SureTorque testers are configurable to test various size and shape containers. Tooling is designed for quick, tool-free changeover. Design specific tooling provides secure 360 degree gripping of cap and container. Adjustable chuck and clamp pressures, ensure appropriate cap and bottle grip. Anti-bridging, Anti tie-down, Anti-repeat dual actuation safety start control for improved operator safety. Full safety enclosure is optionally available.
