Integrated Leak Testers

Integrated leak testers are custom designed to be integrated into existing equipment and provide an alternative to purchasing and installing a full leak test system into their line. They are used to test empty and filled containers of various sizes such as pharmaceutical vials, beverage bottles, food packaging, automotive oil bottles, and much more.

Leak detection machines are available in rotary leak testing and linear leak testing configuration and use one of two methods for testing empty and filled containers:

  • Pressure Decay Leak Testing: This is the primary testing method for empty bottles and containers and involves extending a probe into a container to create a leak-tight seal on the opening. The container is then filled to a specific pressure; if the target pressure range is not achieved, the container fails the test. Pressure decay leak testers can also be used to test seal integrity and the integrity of filled and sealed containers.
  • Vacuum Decay Leak Testing: The vacuum decay leak testing method is non-destructive and used for sealed containers and packages for food, beverage, and pharmaceutical applications. This method involved drawing a vacuum on containers or packages within a test chamber. Vacuum levels are monitored for decay, which indicates the presence of a leak. Vacuum decay leak testers are only available through our sister company, Bonfiglioni Engineering.
