Vacuum Leakage Tester

This equipment is used to check a non-porous, closed package for leakage / pinholes / tunnel defects.

– Solid Filled / Air Filled packages are tested while submerged in water.
– Liquid Product Filled packages are tested in dry condition (without water).

Package integrity is often an important characteristic of package performance.
Breaches of package integrity may permit substances to enter or contents to escape packages.

The Vacuum method of leakage testing is not entirely suitable for packages with very low headspace Volumes or for products with high viscosity.

Confirms to : ASTM D4991 / D3078

Model # DLX

Leakage Tester (Compressed Air Operated)
The Leakage Tester is used to check a package for leakage / pin holes.
– Solid Filled / Air Filled packages are tested while submerged in water.
– Liquid Product Filled packages are tested in dry condition (without water).
The below models run on an Air operated Vacuum Generator. (Noise & Maintenance Free)
These Vacuum Generators require atleast 5 Kg/cm2 air pressure (to generate a vacuum of 650 mm of hg)
They also consume 44 – 66 L of air per minute of operation / vacuum generation.

Leakage Tester.                    Model : DLX
Delux Digital Model
Suitable for comfortably achieving a Working Vacuum level of upto 700 mbar (500 mmHg)
Can also achieve a Peak Vacuum of 850-875 mbar (635-650 mmHg) (Special Model Available for >700 mbar applications).
Fully-Automatic, Embedded Push-Button Operation through Control Panel
With Electronic solenoid valves

System Consisting of :

A Controller-cum-display Unit with inbuilt Vacuum Generator of suitable capacity.
With high accuracy Digital Vacuum Sensor connected to the Vacuum Chamber.
Signals from the Sensor are sent to a Microprocessor based Indicator-cum-Controller.
The Controller controls the entire operation and indication.
The user has an option to select the measurement unit, (mm-hg, Mbar, kPA)
A large format LCD is provided display to display vacuum and time.

With programmable Vacuum and Timer Set-points

Operating Procedure :
– Place sample in Vacuum Chamber.
– Go to MENU of the controller. Select appropriate Vacuum and Time setpoints.
– Press START button.
– As soon as the desired Vacuum is achieved, the solenoid valves will lock the Chamber.
– A Count-down Timer will start on the same LCD display.
– Watch for any air-bubbles coming out from the sample / package.
– As soon as the desired Time is over, the solenoid valves will exhaust the Chamber.

This equipment requires Compressed air @ 6 Kg/cm2 (upto 100 LPM) from your source.
