Blister Tester automates methylene blue dye test.

Lippke Blister-Tester VC 1380 utilizes bowl-shaped chamber filled with water to which blue dye is added. Filled blister is secured at bottom of bowl and remains in methylene blue dye under atmospheric pressure for predetermined amount of time. If there is a leak in blister or backing seal, dye-filled water breaches structure and penetrates specific cell. Parameters for vacuum, test time, and...
