In this article, we will be talking about what exactly is the use for these leak detectors, the kind of testing equipment we offer, their cost, and why SEAL-CHECK represents the best cost-benefit relationship for you as a packaging manufacturer.
What Are Package Leak Detectors Used For?
In the early days, the packaging industry was more acquainted with using probabilistic test methods for sampling the presence of microbiological agents inside products. As time went by, new techniques that were more deterministic emerged and became the norm in the industry. These approaches reduce the need for preparing a sample and then validating it. Not to mention the vast improvement to the reliability in finding out leaks and defects in packages in a faster way.
Nowadays, there are many ways in which you can go about detecting possible leaks in packaging material. The two most common methods include detection by water bath and injection of tracer gas, which can be carbon dioxide, hydrogen, or even helium. Here, we will be talking about the first method.
It is vital to note that using this type of equipment plays an important role in securing a product's sterility and shelf life. By making sure that a package and the product inside it are entirely leak-tight, we can prevent microbiological agents, oxygen, and moisture from making their way in, damaging content in the process.
Types of packages run the gamut as far as creativity with their designs. Still, among the most common ones, we can expect to find bottles, pouches, syringes, vials, rigid trays, thermoform packages, sachets, and flow wraps, among many others.
Manufacturing considerations for packaging are countless. Even if you take complete care of the process, avoiding a faulty package on the line is almost impossible - it just happens. Defects in the sealing process can cause a material to end up with sometimes microscopically small leaks. A package leak detector exists to ensure that your packaging meets the ever-demanding quality assurance norms. That way, your food and pharmaceutical products can reach their customers in the safest of ways.
Package Leak Testing Equipment
When transported by air or other vehicles, products can be affected. Here is when our device can help you detect the smallest of defects without the use of gas. Our leak detector consists of an acrylic tank, a vacuum gauge, and a control valve. Our product makes use of corrosion-resistant stainless steel to ensure long-lasting durability.
To detect leaks and defects, all you have to do is fill the inside of the acrylic tank with water, then place the package undergoing testing inside and close the lid on the device. After this, you will use the lever on the side to create a vacuum inside the chamber. You can achieve this thanks to the pneumatically-operated venturi nozzle on the equipment.
With the lid on the device closed and the vacuum created, the package will be compressed underwater. If there is any air or gas in the package, it will escape in the form of bubbles. These bubbles will float upward inside the fluid. With this test, it is easy to check where exactly the package is leaking and where it needs improvements. Whether in its design or your manufacturing system, you can apply a remedy to reduce these instances from occurring.
You can accomplish the whole test in just a few seconds. Providing an easy, direct, and confident way to ensure the integrity of your packages and your entire manufacturing process.
