How do you guarantee to your customers that your packaging system is dependable once it leaves your facility?

This is a complex question. Issues such as packaging material compatibility, sealing machine set-up and seal reliability in airfreight are just some of the production variables that need to be taken into account. The manufacturing considerations are countless.

A systematic package testing system that incorporates the Pack-Vac Leak Detector will allow users to quickly and reliably set up packaging lines, resulting in less downtime for machinery adjustments. Additionally, continual process monitoring with the Pack-Vac Leak Detector will detect sealing problems before they snowball and catch defects before they get to customers.

The Pack-Vac is simple to set up and operate. A range of tests can be performed either underwater or in the dry chamber. The most common test performed is the bubble emission test. The chamber is filled with water, submerging your package when the lid is down. Opening the ball valve will apply a vacuum to the package causing it to expand and put pressure on the seams. A successful test will maintain the integrity of the package; a failure will be easily identified by the stream of bubbles rising to the surface from the leak.

Pack-Vac can also be used to test rigid trays, tubs, cups and packaging containing liquid with some headspace. An altitude simulation test is also possible.
