Simple, Effective Leak Detection

22.06.2016

If packaging and components leak, the consequences can be fatal. A simple way of eliminating this risk is to use a water bath to detect leaks.

Witt-Gasetechnik offers a straightforward, cost-effective leak detection system called the Leak-Master® Easy.

The system makes it possible to detect even the smallest of leaks in products, components or packaging – whether for food items (with or without a protective atmosphere), electronic items such as lights for the car industry, pharmaceutical products, bubble wrap, PET bottles or other items made of PET. The Easy can even be used for vacuum packaging.

The detection method is simple but effective: The test sample is placed in the water-filled chamber. Compressed air is used to evacuate the air space above the water level. At leakage points, the resulting vacuum causes air or filling gas to escape and bubble up to the top of the chamber in a way that is clearly visible.

The great advantage of this method is that the Quality Tester can quickly and easily determine whether the product is leaking and from where. This makes it possible to introduce changes to the manufacturing and packaging processes.

Witt also offers an electronic control module, which makes it possible to record, save and transmit all of the test results. This module is operated using a touchscreen.

In addition to the leak detection feature, it is also possible to carry out simple strength tests in the dry chamber. It is even possible to perform altitude simulation tests on products that need to be transported by air freight. It allows potential weak points in the packaging to be identified before they are transported.

The Leak-Master® Easy is available in five variants with chamber volumes ranging from 20 to 215 litres. The installation and commissioning process is extremely easy. The test device is low-maintenance and inexpensive to run. The intuitive controls mean that it does not require especially trained staff. The sturdy acrylic housing is hygienic and easy to clean. It can be emptied using a drainage tap in the base.
