The leaks found in the product will not only hamper your product quality but also lead to business loss. Thus, it is very important for you to keep a check on the vacuum leaks of the products by using the right quality testing equipment. The Testronix vacuum leak tester is one of the effective testing equipment which is used to perform the vacuum leak test on products like packaging, bags, flexible packaging films, pouches, etc.   

This lab testing equipment will let you determine the integrity of packaging products with the effect of a vacuum. Here in this blog, we are going to discuss the top 5 tips through which you can easily maintain the vacuum leak tester. So, let us get started.

Vacuum leak tester: Best testing equipment to check the seal integrity of packages

The vacuum leak tester is one of the important quality testing instruments that will let you test the seal integrity of packaging material and help you in detecting any sort of leaks for a variety of products. This accurate lab testing equipment provides you with superior quality testing of products to their customers and removes all the imperfections present in it. This lab testing equipment will be combined with several testing standards like ASTM D 4991-07(2015), ASTM F 2338-09(2013).

This amazing lab testing instrument will help you in improving your PET bottle quality by detecting any sort of leaks. During the testing procedures, the test sample is placed in its place and then a specified amount of vacuum is created in the sample. After the vacuum is created in the sample, it becomes easy to test any leakage in the test sample with great accuracy. When the test specimen is placed under vacuum, if there is a leakage in the seal of the specimen, it will deform or shrink indicating the presence of leakage in the specimen. The test is performed in order to ensure that the packaging offered to the clients is free from any leakage and is completely intact.
