Application torque:

Rule of thumb is one half the diameter in (mm) of the closure for inch pounds of torque, Eg. 38mm = 19 inch pounds. 17-26 In-lbs-on-torque would be the recommended range.

 

Removal torque:

Values are approximately 40% to 80% of the application torque values. If removal torque is used for Quality purposes, it should be tested within five minutes of the time the closure is applied.
