Heat and Control partners with Oxipack Leak Detection
Oxipack Leak Detection and Heat and Control have announced a strategic partnership to support Australian and New Zealand customers in the food industry, as well as pet food, pharmaceutical and related industries.
Heat and Control has been appointed the exclusive agent to sell and service Oxipack’s specialist non-destructive leak detection in airtight or vacuum packaging, effective immediately.
The new partnership allows Heat and Control to bring Oxipack’s testing method and specialist non-destructive leak detection solutions to its processing and packaging portfolio. Heat and Control will leverage its extensive sales and service infrastructure in order to sell and support Oxipack equipment within defined regions, including application testing, service and spare parts.
“We are very pleased to be aligning with Oxipack,” said Robert Marguccio, Business Manager – Packaging & Inspection Systems, Heat and Control.
“This non-destructive leak checking technology will enable us to provide a solution to customers that need to check their products for micro leaks. Traditionally micro leaks are found using a water bath, which means the tested product cannot be returned to the line after a pass result. Oxipack uses a unique, vacuum system which allows the sampled product to be returned to the line after passing the test. The unit can also be calibrated to a known leak rate, should that be acceptable.”
Heat and Control provides a range of solutions for manufacturers of both fresh and processed meat, poultry, seafood, potato and snack products, nuts and fruit and vegetable products in Australia and New Zealand, and Oxipack’s products will complement its portfolio of processing and packaging solutions.
