Empty Plastic Container Testing Equipment

Bottle Tester PET Bottle Inspection

ALPS leak testing – container examples

Split seams, weak seals, and other plastic packaging issues don’t just result in leaks. They can lead to contamination that affects product integrity and places not only your brand but customer health at risk. Conducting container inspections for plastic packages is necessary to verify the integrity of containers before filling the bottles.

Container inspections for plastic packages should not significantly slow down your assembly line or require an external party to visit your facility to conduct an audit of your plastic containers. You need a solution that helps you maintain an efficient production operation while meeting all your testing requirements.

Empty plastic package testing equipment provides a solution by detecting defects along the bottom, sidewalls, and neck of plastic containers. These systems come as separate tabletop units or integrate into your production line to perform leak tests without interruption. Test anywhere from dozens to a hundred bottles per minute to keep your manufacturing processes running smoothly and efficiently.
