Ensuring Complete Package Integrity

Leak testing equipment

Industries such as food and beverage, automotive, nutraceutical, and personal care all use leak detection systems to test product containers for leaks and other defects. This critical step in the manufacturing process helps identify issues that lead to product leaking or contamination before they get to the consumer. ALPS systems help you protect your brands – and your customers – by ensuring package integrity.   

ALPS was founded in 1974 and to date has delivered more than 3,000 machines responsible for testing over 50 billion containers annually. Our leak inspection equipment ranges from manual testing equipment for lab and sampling applications to high-speed rotary leak testing systems.   Contact us to learn how we can solve your product leak testing challenges.

Leak Detection Systems for Empty Plastic Containers  

Choose the system that best fits your application. Whether you need a rotary leak tester for high-speed testing to a linear single station for slower speeds, ALPS has you covered.

Products Tested Using Leak Detection Equipment

ALPS, along with Bonfiglioli Engineering and Sepha, offer a broad range of high performance, highly accurate leak detectors for various types of metal, plastic, and composite packages, as well as blister packs and aerosol containers. 

Inspection Methods for Leak Testing Systems

Pressure decay leak testing and vacuum decay leak testing are two standard methods used in manufacturing. Our pressure decay leak testing equipment is ideal for testing empty containers and uses a combination of pressure and sensors to detect leaks. Vacuum testing is primarily used to test filled or sealed containers and involves placing the containers in a sealed chamber that uses vacuum pressure to detect leaks.

In addition to standard testing, our leak detection equipment can be used for auxiliary inspections including bottle height, vision inspection, seal surface inspections and much more.
