HOUSTON (April 27, 2006) - Uson, the world leader in the precision leak, flow, and eddy current tester market, today announced the release of its new Qualipak-B 752 leak tester, a new larger flexible, repeatable non-destructive leak test system that will allow testing of a wide selection of bottles and canisters in the food, medical and pharmaceutical industries.

The Qualipak-B 752 leak tester consists of one Model 1100 test instrument and a six-inch diameter chamber. Chamber infills are used for volume reduction and allow for varying container sizes to be tested in each chamber. The Uson Model 1100 controls the evacuation of the chamber and monitors the changes in pressure during the test cycle.
Designed as an audit tester, the standard Qualipak-B test systems can accommodate up to 4.5 inch diameter containers using a Qualipak-B 751 leak tester and up to six inch diameter containers using a Qualipak -752 leak tester. Custom chambers are also available.
Each test cycle is less than a minute. The tester is easy set up and use; has an anodized aluminum chamber and base; custom volume filling inserts; great flexibility; a PCMCIA card slot for memory storage; touch screen input; pressure plot graphics; and a robust bench top design to be onsite with the package sealing equipment.
