Pouch Burst Tester

This equipment is used to test the maximum internal pressure a pouch can withstand without the seals or the body rupturing.

This test can be considered as a full seal integrity / seal strength test of a formed pouch.

The weakest portion of the pouch can be quickly and easily detected. And you can differentiate between a Weak Seal pouch and a Weak Laminate pouch.
