Leak Testing for the Beverage Industry

Bottle Leak Testing

Blow molders who manufacture plastic bottles for the beverage industry need to avoid product loss at all costs. Leak testing bottles before they’re filled can ensure that defective bottles never reach the filling line. Air Logic Power Systems’ leak testers automatically reject defective bottles. Our machines can test up to 1200 bottles per minute.

Our beverage leak testing machines use pressure decay to test the integrity of all types of beverage bottles, including those with more complex, stylized shapes. Beverage industry manufacturers rely on ALPS leak testers to test:

  • Juice bottles
  • Soda bottles
  • Plastic beer bottles
  • Plastic wine bottles
  • Plastic liquor bottles
  • Milk bottles and jugs
