FPSA-T Control Package

Semi-automatic control package model

The FPSA-T adds a semi automatic control function to the testing procedure of the Leak Detector. The unit consists of a sleek stainless steel panel complete with operator interface, all pneumatics and PLC to control the vacuum setpoints and test times. The semi-automatic control allows operators to set two independent or successive vacuum level setpoints and test times for Bubble Emission Vacuum Tests  (per ASTM Standard Test Method D3078-02),  and Dry Chamber or Burst and Creep Tests. It is simple to operate and provides improved repeatability and consistency of testing for the operator.  The only connection from the control box to the  Package Leak Detector (vacuum test unit) is an air line making the FPSA-T retrofittable to all  units or competitors’ similar vacuum style, bubble test, package leak detectors. Benefits of the  FPSA-T 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.

The FPSA-T semi automatic controller is fully compatible with our Electric Vacuum Pump solution for the Leak Detector. If Compressed air is unavailable, flexible packaging testing can still be achieved by generating a vacuum with our Electric Vacuum Pump. The FPSA-EVP solution only requires accessibility to power requirements of 120-240VAC 50/60 HZ and is fully equipped with a ground fault protected power cord with an on/off switch built in.
