Linear Leak Testers

Since its founding in 1974, ALPS has been building leak testing machines for a broad range of applications.

Due to our continued focus on the Plastic Container market, ALPS offers a full suite of linear leak testers to suit the widest variety of applications. “Linear” leak testers include single or multiple test stations configured to test bottles “in-line” on a conveyor, as opposed to Rotary Leak Testers that test bottles on a rotary turntable.

Our technologies are used by a range of industries, from food and beverage to pharmaceutical. When suited to the application, linear leak testers typically offer a more flexible and lower cost approach to leak testing plastic bottles. ALPS offers a full range of linear leak test machines including the following standard platforms:

Multiple station linear leak tester

Multi-station moving head leak test machine

Designed for use with empty plastic containers, the ALPS Speed-Glider is a multiple-station continuous-motion linear leak tester. This machine can be installed easily onto tabletop conveyor systems. The Speed-Glider uses positive bottle handling to position containers for the leak test, and offers a compact and flexible system to achieve high inspection speeds.

 
 
SC Linear Indexing Conveyor Leak Testers

The ALPS SC Linear indexing conveyor leak tester offers an impressive array of capabilities, and is ideal for use as a general purpose empty container leak tester. It offers extremely high speed testing on a simple single-station platform.

Low Cost Single Head Leak Tester

Low Cost Single Head Leak Tester

The ALPS LC Linear Single Head Leak Tester is a low cost single station machine intended for 100% leak inspection of empty plastic containers. Inspection speeds typically range between 1 to 25 Bottles-Per-Minute (60 to 1500 BPH), depending upon the container size and testing requirements.

SC XL Linear Leak Tester for Large Containers

The SC XL Linear was designed specifically for large containers such as 5 gallon water bottles, jerry cans and containers for edible oils. With a range of state-of-the-art features, the SC XL leak tester is the best choice for manufacturers who use oversize containers.

Linear bottle leak detector

Moving head leak test machine

The ALPS RS-S Linear
moving head leak detector is the result of our commitment to innovation. A continuous motion machine, it follows and tests bottles on existing conveyor systems. It was designed to make testing easy for extremely hard-to-handle containers.
The ALPS Model SX Linear bottle leak detector is the result of our commitment to innovation. A continuous motion machine, it follows and tests bottles on existing conveyor systems. It was designed to make testing easy for extremely hard-to-handle containers.

Multiple station linear leak tester

Multi-station moving head leak test machine

The ALPS Flex Pitch is a fast, tool-less, multi-moving head leak tester with the flexibility to test a wide range of empty containers. The innovative new design maximizes flexibility as test heads can be pre-set to the required pitch, enabling fast change over between conatiners of varying diameters, making it particular suitable for difficult to handle container shapes.
