English term or phrase: vacuum and cap torque
Hi everyone. I need your help kind once more. I'm translating a text on food industry to Spanish and I came across this sentence:

"XXX should check container weights and vacuum and cap torque".

After some searching on the net, I discovered that "torque" can be translated as "par", but what's the translation of the two complete terms (vacuum torque and cap torque)?

Thank you!

vacío y par de apriete de los tapones
Explanation:
No creo que exista el par de vacío, francamente. A mi entender "torque" se refiere sólo al par de apriete de los tapones. Un par de apriete insuficiente o excesivo puede dar lugar a que el cierre de un tapón a rosca sea defectuoso.

Mencionar que si el documento es para Argentina, quizá quieras usar "torque de apriete" que, si no me equivoco, es más habitual allá.
