FLEXPAK Model FPFA Control Package
The FPFA adds a fully automatic control function to the testing procedure of the FLEXPAK Leak Detector. Not only does it allow operators to set one or two vacuum level setpoints for the Bubble Emission Vacuum Test (per ASTM Standard Test Method D3078-02), and program each with a countdown timer for the length of time to do the test, but it also enables Altitude Simulation (per ASTM Standard Test Method D6653) testing complete with input variables of ascent rate, final altitude, time at altitude and decent rate. The FPFA includes multiple recipe storage of all testing parameters and input of “lot number” or other identification for each test concluding each test to be confirmed as Pass or Fail by the operator. In addition, data for each test can be uploaded for further analysis and future reference of similar packages to be tested.
The only connection from the control box to the FLEXPAK Leak Detector (vacuum test unit) is an air line making the FPFA retrofittable to all FLEXPAK or similar competitors’ vacuum style, Bubble Test, leak detectors.
Features of the FPFA include:
- Stainless Steel Control Box
- CSA, UL, CE Compliant Panel
- Panel Designed for Wash Down Environments
- Recipe Capability
- Data Logging Capability
- Retrofittable to Any Similar Bubble Test Leak Detector by Other Manufacturers
- Required Power Supply Requirement of 120-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz
Benefits of the FLEXPAK FPFA unit will be realized by many industries such as those in the manufacture of packaging and end user food packagers of meat, fish & seafood, cheese & dairy, confectionery, snacks, pet food & pet treats, cereals, grains & baked goods, coffee & coffee pods, medical & pharma and any non-food packaging item where package seal integrity is critical.
