What Industries Are It for? 

Mechanical leak test is performed on packaging, bags, flexible packaging ,Pouches etc. Determines the error in the packaging process and helps strengthen the integrity of the packaging. The Instrument is designed in such a way that it can capture all kinds of defects of solid and flexible packages. It is widely used in the F&B industry and in medicine/pharmaceutical industries.It has multiple applications and is not limited to a single industry.

How should tests be performed to obtain improved results?

1. Follow the steps of the appropriate test procedure:

2. The sample to be tested is placed in a desiccator or vacuum kit.

3. The lid is closed to create space.

4. For a specified period of time, a vacuum is defined inside the desiccator.

5. The vacuum is set according to the test requirements or the level of testing.

6. As soon as the test is started, due to the negative pressure created by the vacuum, the air inside the package begins to explode.

7. A sample is made to hold this position for a period of time. After that, a vacuum is removed.

8. The air inside the package starts to decrease.

If the package retains its original shape and size, it is declared a pass. On the other hand, if a package falls, it is declared a failure.
