Quick test for pack­age leaks

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH - www.demm.co.nz/reader-en­quiry #141202

The TSE6086b tests f lex­i­ble pack­ages for leaks, and gives go / no-go an­swers in­de­pen­dent of the op­er­a­tor. It can find holes as small as 10 mi­crons in di­am­e­ter.

It’s used to test bis­cuits, snack foods, salad, MAP packs, milk pow­der, med­i­cal ban­dages, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, and the list goes on…

It doesn’t stress the pack­age con­tents as a unique f lex­i­ble test cham­ber en­sures good pack­ages are left in orig­i­nal con­di­tion after test­ing, and put straight back onto the pro­duc­tion line. Which de­creases re­turn-on-in­vest­ment time. It re­quires pack­ages with a “head-space” of air (or MAP gases), and gen­er­ally dry con­tents.

Its test­ing cham­ber is de­signed to fit most pack­age sizes found in the su­per­mar­ket.

Items are placed man­u­ally, and the han­dle is closed to ini­ti­ate a fully au­to­matic test se­quence. Re­sults are dis­played with pass or fail lamps, along with a quan­ti­ta­tive mea­sure of the leak­age rate.

Other fea­tures of the sys­tem in­clude sim­ple op­er­a­tion as test ini­ti­ates from han­dle clo­sure, it ac­cepts a wide range of pack sizes and shapes with­out adjustment, and pro­vides rapid test­ing from five to 15 seconds for most stan­dard packs.

In ad­di­tion, there’s in­ter­nal gen­er­a­tion of test vac­uum from com­pressed air or op­tion­ally by ex­ter­nal vac­uum pump and re­sults are logged into a spread­sheet im­portable for­mat for trend anal­y­sis and trace­abil­ity.
