Package Leak Testing with Differential Pressure Decay Test
By far the most popular technology, differential pressure decay uses a reference volume to test your part. This helps compensate for any ambient pressure or temperature variations as they occur on both parts simultaneously. Only a leak on the test part will result in a movement of our transducer’s membrane. The second advantage of this method is that the accuracy does not drop with the test pressure as the transducer is measuring pressure differences between the two circuits. This is instead of the traditional pressure decay test technology that measures pressure drops against the atmosphere.
Package leak testing is essential for ensuring integrity during packaging development, machine setup and quality control. Pin holes, channel leaks and improper sealing all present challenges for leak detection in flexible packaging. The F5200 leak tester helps our clients perform clean, dry, non-destructive and non-subjective leak testing on a variety of flexible package types. At ATEQ, our sales engineers can help help you design and implement non-destructive leak detection techniques for a variety of applications. This includes pouches and bags for use in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and medical industries.
