Using a Package Leak Detector
The FlexPak TM 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 TM 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!
