Using a Package Leak Detector
The FLEXPAK package leak detector can be used for a variety of different package types, from stand-up pouches, packages with modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), rigid trays, vacuum skin packs, thermoform packages, sachets, flow wraps, form fill seal (VFFS) and reclosable packages. Wherever package seal integrity is critical, the vacuum seal tester can be used to detect if there are any faults in the package’s seal, seam or closure before making it to production or your customer.
How the Vacuum Seal Tester Works
The FLEXPAK leak detector and seal integrity testing unit is a high quality machine that consists of a clear acrylic vacuum tank (chamber) and system, a control valve, and an indicator gauge. From the fittings to the stand, the detector utilizes solid stainless steel working parts to avoid breakage and ensure the highest of standards. Through our more efficient design, our leak detector has fewer failures and potential system air leaks.
Packages requiring testing are simply placed in the clear acrylic vacuum tank (chamber) of water, the lid is closed and vacuum engaged. You can then choose which testing method to use based on your company’s standards and requirements. A complete test can be accomplished in just a matter of seconds with immediate results!
