FlexPak Leak Detector Bubble Test Package

The  leak detector machine is a high quality seal integrity tester for packaging that adds quality control measures to your packaging applications. The vacuum seal integrity test will help ensure that your packaged product is sealed to your specifications. Benefits of  will be realized by many industries from package manufacturers and converters to end user packagers in the packaging of: cheese, meat, seafood, pet food, pet treats, coffee, grains, cereal, bakery, confectionery, snacks, pasta, frozen foods, medical and pharmaceutical, industrial, and many more.

Using a Package Leak Detector

The  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  leak detector and seal integrity testing device consists of a clear acrylic vacuum tank (chamber, also known as a “dunk tank” or “water bath”), a control valve, and a vacuum gauge. From the fittings to the stand, the detector utilizes solid stainless steel working parts to avoid corrosion and ensure the highest durability. Through our more efficient design, our leak detector is more reliable than all other similar leak detectors.

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. If you see bubbles you have a leak! Visual confirmation of a leak location directs operator to which seal bars require adjustments. A complete test can be accomplished in just a matter of seconds with immediate results!

Leak tester works great!

Leak tester works great and this will save me hours of time every week. Ultimately I’ll be able to turn this over to our hourly workforce. Thanks again for a great product.

Kurt Lewis, Quality Control Coordinator

We rely heavily on the reliabilty of these FlexPak Leak Detectors

Firstly we have three tanks in our production area that are used everyday and all day with minimal maintenance. The operators check finished product every hour for verification of seals and can rely on the visual result. It has been great to pinpoint seal failures and fractures of our pouches, where we can quickly fix a defect when noticed. All our testing is done inline with our bag machines so we rely heavily on the reliabilty of these FlexPak Leak Detectors.
Also since I do most of the maintenance on these tanks, I can honestly say they’re built tough, easy to clean and changing the seals is a breeze. We put these tanks through a lot, lids opening and closing all day long and with no issues. We have a tank purchased in 2013 and its still going with no end in sight, used everyday.
It’s a solid product and has become an essential part of our quality system.
