Witt Leak-Master Mapmax upgraded in-line leak detection system

Wednesday, 11 March, 2015 | Supplied by: Niche Gas Products



Witt has released an upgraded version of Leak-Master Mapmax, which enables non-destructive detection of leaks using CO2 as a trace gas.

Integrating into any packaging line, it is able to check the entire volume of a line for leaks. A vacuum in the test chamber creates pressure differences between the packaging and the chamber. Leaks in the packaging allow gas to escape and this is detected by fast, highly sensitive sensors. The technology focuses on the detection of carbon dioxide leaks as this gas is already present in most inert gas packaging.

In the upgraded version, the checking of small-volume packages with low gas content (such as sliced products) has been improved, with optional dynamic area compression within the chamber. The machine has been equipped with a welded stainless steel frame that offers vibration stability. The vacuum pump requires low maintenance and does not produce any heat. If the machine needs to be checked, the easily removable access lids allow most maintenance tasks to be conducted during operation. Quick-release fasteners enable wearing parts, such as filters, to be quickly replaced.

The switch cabinet and other add-on parts have been compactly integrated into the system’s hygienic stainless steel housing, which simplifies operation and enables the user to enter data through an enlarged colour touch screen. A barcode reader can be attached.

The detector can be connected to a company’s electronic network via ethernet to enable controlling and data logging.
