The test chamber is also designed with a unique flexible bladder that eliminates any stress on the pouch seal during the testing cycle.
Heinz Wolf, general manager, noted, "The VeriPac 225 non-destructive leak tester is a very economical and versatile package inspection system that is an ideal solution for companies that manufacture product in various size pouches which is very common in many industries today."
Wolf adds, "This test method is a practical alternative to destructive testing methods such as water bath and dye testing and is much more realiable than manual vision inspection. It eliminates the waste and cost associated with these methods and offers quantitative data that means something.
Test results are measurable and repeatable. The VeriPac 225 can also be used for filled and sealed cups and trays made of porous or non-porous materials."
