Witt Mapmax leak detection system

The Witt Mapmax leak detection system that has been developed from the Leak-Master Inline model can be integrated into the production line. In addition to the outer packaging and E2 boxes, the machine can also test individual packaging, for example an entire batch from a thermoform or tray sealing machine and test them one by one for leaks.

In addition, there is the infeed consisting of two synchronised conveyor belts. The measurement chamber has also been redesigned. This and other modifications have made the unit more compact at about 1800 mm, so that retrofitting is no longer a problem with the majority of production lines.

With up to 15 cycles a minute it is claimed to be the fastest system of its type. This means that for the first time it is possible to carry out automatic quality control on the entire production line.

CO2 is the trace gas used to detect even the smallest leak. The gas is present in the majority of modified atmosphere packaging; if the packaging is not airtight the sensor in the vacuum chamber will detect any leak.

The vacuum required for the pressure difference can be set individually; personnel do not need intensive training to operate the system.

The analysis software allows the equipment to be operated by remote control and enables the measurement data documentation to be integrated into a quality management system.

All the measurement results, such as date, time, product details and name of the tester, can also be sent to Excel.
