  • Upper and lower failure limits can be set in psi, bar, kPa
  • Switch from fast to slow flow rate with a user defined knee point
  • Semi-automatic calibration

The Buckle Gauge (dome reversal gauge) is a self contained quality control instrument designed to precisely measure the pressure at which the dome will reverse (“pop”) on necked or un-necked DWI beverage cans.

An additional module (SI6105) can be specified to monitor and report the can height growth (sometimes known as "dome growth") during a test with multi-stage (5 point), user defined pressure profiles and hold times. flexible configuration.

Buckle test characteristics for different can types are easily set up and associated with user selected production lines. Up to 20 procedures can be set up.

Data from up to 50 finished batches can be stored in internal memory. Buckle test / dome reversal and dome growth results are displayed on the integrated screen with time and date stamp and output to the user’s SPC system via the RS232 Serial port.
