Bubble Emission Packaging Testing Equipment
LeakVIEW provides visual detection of leaks through either bubble emission or burst testing in a wide range of packaging. An essential piece of quality assurance equipment for testing the seal integrity for all types of packaging within the food, consumer and medical device industries.
The clear perspex test chamber is filled with water and during testing, the head-space is placed under a predetermined vacuum level causing the packing under test to inflate. Should any leaks be present a stream of bubbles will be emitted showing the location of the leak in a faulty seal. The system is able to identify holes as small as 20 microns (µm) and operates in compliance with ASTM D3078 or ASTM F2096 standards. For altitude simulation or burst testing water is not required in the test chamber.
The system requires no calibration or electrical supply and is easy to use by operators with minimum training providing dependable repeatable results.
An automatic version is also available that uses a programmable touch screen so that predetermined vacuum level and test duration can be undertaken at the touch of a button. This ensures total repeatability and reproducibility of results regardless of the operator skill. This version is used for altitude simulation testing. The display will indicate the end of the test cycle and in the case of altitude simulation, ascent and descent profiles can be displayed graphically.
Both versions are available in standard ranges of sizes to suit the application. In addition, custom configurations can be provided to suit special customer application.
