Quality testing is an essential part of the manufacturing process, especially when it comes to PET bottles. And while there are many different types of quality tests that can be performed on products, one of the most important tests for PET bottles is the vacuum leak test. The vacuum leak test is used to detect any leaks in the bottle that could potentially allow oxygen or other contaminants to enter the product. If you are looking for a quality lab testing instrument to test the vacuum leaks present in the products, we at Testronix have designed a high-quality vacuum leak tester.  

This vacuum leak tester for PET bottles has been designed with industrial standards that include ASTM D6653. Besides this, it comes with a microprocessor-based display for accuracy and repeatability. Here in this blog, we are going to discuss brief information about vacuum leak testers and their usage in the PET bottle industry. We will also discuss the importance of testing the vacuum leaks of PET bottles.

Importance of testing the vacuum leaks in PET bottles

As the world increasingly moves to a more "on-the-go" lifestyle, the demand for beverages in portable containers has sky-rocketed. One of the most popular types of portable beverage containers is the PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) bottle. While PET bottles are incredibly convenient, they are also susceptible to vacuum leaks. A vacuum leak in a PET bottle can cause the container to collapse, which can be extremely dangerous if the beverage inside is under pressure (such as carbonated drinks). A collapsed container can also cause the contents to spill, which can be both messy and dangerous.

Therefore, it is important for PET bottle manufacturers to conduct vacuum leak tests on the bottles so as to ensure quality products will be delivered. By conducting a vacuum leak test on a PET bottle, one can easily improve the quality of products.

The vacuum leak tests were conducted on the materials and eliminated the leaks present in the products. Now, let us discuss more information about the Testronix vacuum leak tester.

How does the Testronix vacuum leak tester work?

A leaky bottle can allow oxygen and other contaminants into the product, which can cause spoilage and potentially pose a health risk. By testing for leaks before packaging PET bottles, you can ensure that your product will stay fresh and safe to consume. To operate the Testronix vacuum leak tester, you can easily follow the steps mentioned below.

  • Turn the machine ON and set the duration of the test with a digital timer.

  • After that, place the specimen accurately and set the timer.

  • When the test timer will be set then you can easily move the desiccator cover and place the bottle inside the test cavity in an inverted position.

  • You need to make sure that the cover should be properly placed on the gasket and help you to perform the vacuum leak test on the specimen with ease.
