Leak Testing to Inform of Plastic Container Integrity
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 testing 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.
Choose the system that best fits your application. Whether you want inspection to take place when bottles are filled or empty, or are in need of a rotary leak tester for high-speed testing compared to a linear single station for slower speeds, ALPS has you covered.
Plastic containers are manufactured in high volume to keep up with demands. It’s inevitable that some containers will have defects that will cause leaks once the bottles are filled and shipped. Inline leak testing equipment tests plastic bottles as they move through the production line and automatically reject those with defects. Identify issues before bottles make it further down the production line, minimizing the potential of recalls associated with bottle quality.
Different packaging types have different requirements when it comes to leak inspection. Plastic bottle inspection, for example, involves checking for openings, gaps, and other container defects.
Leak Inspection Equipment for Product Container Testing
Nondestructive leak detectors provide effective and reliable testing without causing damage to packaging. We work with customers from various industries, including automotive, food and beverage, and personal care, to develop leak testing equipment that is compatible with a wide range of container types and sizes.

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.
