Leak Testing for Food Packaging

Food Industry Seal Integrity Testing

Lost product is lost money. Recalls due to contamination are costly – to your bottom line and your reputation. These scenarios, though worrisome, are easy to prevent. By adding an ALPS leak tester to your blow molding production line, you can eliminate defective containers long before they reach the filling stage.

Pressure decay is a highly effective leak testing method. Our leak testers use this method to test a broad range of food containers, including:

  • Edible Oil Containers
  • Cooking Oil Bottles
  • Syrup bottles
  • Salad dressing bottles
  • Plastic peanut butter jars
  • Ketchup bottles
  • Microwavable soup containers
  • Vinegar bottles
  • Plastic fruit jars
  • Coffee cans
