Linear Leak Testers
Linear leak testers integrate into your existing bottle conveyor system seamlessly.
Linear leak testers are ‘in-line” defense systems that are used for non-destructive empty container leak testing. Linear leak testers can be used to leak test a wide range of container shapes and sizes, including: water bottles, gallon sized jugs, and other plastic containers.
Available as single or multi-head test stations, these solutions are configured to test bottles “in-line” on a bottle conveyor system, as opposed to Rotary Leak Testers which operate as a rotary turntable. As containers move along a bottle conveyor system, a stationary or moving test head uses either vacuum decay or pressure decay to leak test each bottle.
These flexible leak detection solutions are ideal in a range of industries, from food and beverage to pharmaceutical. When tailored to the application, linear leak testers typically offer flexibility and a lower-cost approach for leak testing plastic bottles.
Our linear leak testers are designed to integrate into your existing bottle conveyor system seamlessly. Available in tabletop or floor styles to fit your manufacturing setup, ALPS Inspection’s leak inspection equipment also features a state-of-the-art control system with a color touch screen and fully guided setup to teach a complete setup to a novice operator.

QuickCheck Single-head Leak Testing System
The general-purpose and user-friendly QuickCheck leak tester offers a single-location test and reject station with inspection speeds from 2 to 200 BPM (bottles-per-minute) depending on your unique container and size. The QuickCheck ensures accurate defect tests for small and large containers at the highest possible capacity.
Moving Head Leak Test Machine
The RS-S Linear is a moving head leak detector that follows and tests bottles on existing conveyor systems. This bottle and container leak testing system simplifies the testing of extremely hard-to-handle containers and has an inspection speed range of 10 to 160 containers-per-minute. Available in floor standing or conveyor mount configurations.
Multi-Station Moving Head Leak Test Machine
The FlexPitch® is a fast, tool-less, multi-moving head leak tester with the flexibility to test a wide range of empty containers. The FlexPitch has an innovative design that maximizes flexibility and enables quick change-over by allowing the operator to pre-set test heads to the required pitch. This leak tester can achieve inspection speeds up to 250 bottles-per-minute and is ideal for oddly irregular shaped containers.
SST Leak Tester
Speed up the time it takes to perform height changeovers with the SST Linear leak tester. This leak tester has been designed to work with your Injection Blow Molding (IBM) system for a seamless testing experience. The SST Linear leak tester combines a single station linear indexing conveyor leak tester with a blow molder takeout conveyor to deliver accuracy and efficiency.
