Sampling Pressure Tester 2

Automated pressure testing and volume measurement for glass containers

The Agr Sampling Pressure Tester 2 (SPT2) automated testing station provides critical pressure strength and volume performance data for glass containers, on a sampling basis on the production floor. Integrated into the production line, it automatically tests and collects pressure and volume data on bottles selected for sampling, without operator intervention, on a 24/7 basis.
