When carrying out bubble emissions testing, the chamber is filled with water prior to testing. During the test phase, the head-space will be placed under the vacuum, causing the package to inflate. Water is not required for altitude simulation or the burst test method. Should any leaks be present within the packaging, a stream of bubbles will be emitted, allowing the user to easily pinpoint the exact location of the leak. The Leakview is able to identify holes smaller than 20 microns. This performance is determined by pack size, vacuum level and head space.
Operated by a simple Selector lever that rotates to hold the vacuum at a chosen level, and then further rotates to control the vent rate. User-friendly and low maintenance, the LeakVIEW vacuum leak tester is an essential piece of equipment for any package testing facility.
- Ideal for bubble emission, burst test or altitude simulation
- Low maintenance with no specialist tooling, electrical connection or calibration required
- User-friendly – one touch, manual control
- Detects holes smaller than 20 microns
- Clear perspex housing allows for optimum viewing
- Custom configurations are available
The LeakVIEW is an ideal solution for pharmaceutical blister pack manufacturers, crisp, peanut, popcorn, condom and coffee manufacturers to find leaks within their products. Avoid costly production downtime in identifying package leaks with instant results by using the LeakVIEW as part of your quality control. User-friendly and low maintenance, the LeakVIEW is an essential piece of leak detection equipment for any package testing facility.
