ALPS leak testing – container examples
Industrial package inspection systems are designed to make sure that products remain inside of the packaging and to protect the products from the outside environment. Leaks and seal failures lead to product failures, wasted manufactured products, and customer complaints.
Seal strength testing and package integrity leak testing are an essential aspect of quality control. Ensuring package integrity in systems like food packaging inspection systems keeps food safe from outside contamination and prolongs shelf life.
ALPS package leak detection equipment ensures the integrity of the majority of mass-produced empty container types for a variety of industries.
Industries that Utilize Industrial Packaging Leak Detection Equipment
Because package leak detection equipment can prevent product waste and failures, many industries use leak testing to save money and produce higher quality products. We serve customers in a range of industries, including:
- Food Packaging
- Pharmaceutical Packaging/a>
- Household, Personal Care, Automotive & Industrial Packaging
- Chemical and cosmetic
Industrial Package Inspection Systems and Leak Testing Methods
Our leak inspection systems use various leak testing methods including:
Pressure decay: By far the most common method for empty plastic containers, this method detects leakage as an excessive pressure drop in a container, after the bottle is sealed and pressurized. Because this leak detection method records data points, it removes operator dependency and allows for specific accept/reject criteria to be set.
Vacuum decay: For select applications, vacuum can be used in place of pressure. A typical application is a case in which it is desired to detect a sidewall collapse in the container, under a defined amount of vacuum. This method is the ideal leak detection system for filled and sealed containers.
Benefits of Industrial Packaging Leak Detection Systems
Leak testing monitors the container production process and provides an early warning of major issues before containers are packaged, warehoused and shipped to the customer. Leak testing protects the process from random issues that cannot be detected through a sampling process.
On-line leak testing of plastic containers supports major market trends including Zero Defects, Light-Weighting, increased Recycled Material Content, and the introduction of New Container Types and Processes.
Other benefits of production packaging inspection systems include:
- Allows for automation
- Easier to interpret data
- Prevents costly damage
