SC Linear Leak Tester
A flexible, cost-effective solution for high speed, integrated leak testing.
The ALPS Inspection single head SC linear indexing conveyor leak tester is an excellent general purpose empty bottle leak tester with a wide range of capabilities.
The leak tester conveyor can be fully integrated using special end plates and can include optional vacuum capability. This bottle leak tester is designed for optimal handling to ensure the most accurate leak test possible as well as the highest speed capacity on a single test station.
The SC Linear is a flexible, cost-effective solution for high speed, integrated leak testing.
The SC Linear bottle leak tester machine’s speed and sensitivity capabilities depend on the container size and volume. It can accommodate containers in a wide variety of sizes, from small pharmaceutical bottles up to 5-gallon water jugs.
Typical leak inspection speeds range from 10 to 30 containers-per-minute (CPM) for larger containers (e.g. 4 to 5L), to 60 to 100 CPM for single-serve containers (e.g. 0.5L), and as high as 180 to 200 CPM for the very smallest pharmaceutical bottles (e.g. 20 to 40mL).
SC Linear leak testers utilize the latest state-of-the-art controls and features:
The bottle leak detector conveyor runs continuously between tests. When the test photo-eye senses the presence of a container, the conveyor is immediately stopped, a probe extends to form a leak tight seal, and the container is tested for leakage using pressure decay testing.
If the container is bad, it is ejected from the bottle leak tester machine immediately after the test, and the conveyor restarts. If the container is good, the bottle leak detector conveyor restarts automatically when the test is complete.
Common applications for the SC Linear bottle leak tester include the following blow molding processes:
