Dynascan LeakVIEW

Visual detection of packaging leaks through either bubble emissions, burst testing or altitude simulation testing. The LeakVIEW is an ideal seal integrity tester for a range of packaging within the food, consumer and medical device industries.

Enhanced by its clear Perspex housing, the LeakVIEW provides optimum visual detection of leaks. User-friendly and low maintenance, the system is able to identify holes smaller than 20 microns and can operate in compliance with ASTM standards.

When carrying out bubble emissions testing the chamber is filled with water. During the test phase, the head-space is placed under a vacuum, causing the inserted packaging to inflate. Should any leaks be present, a stream of bubbles will be emitted. Water is not required for altitude simulation or burst testing.

The LeakVIEW range is available in two configurations, the Automatic and the Manual. Custom configurations are available to tailor the LeakVIEW to each individual’s requirements.

The LeakVIEW Automatic system is programmed from a colour touchscreen display for method development and can then be locked to prevent unauthorised changes. Automatic test cycles are initiated by a simple press of the start button. The display will indicate the end of the test cycle. In the case of altitude simulation, ascent and descent profiles can be displayed graphically.

Alternatively the LeakVIEW manual is operated by a simple Selector lever that rotates to hold the vacuum at a chosen level, and then further rotates to control the vent rate. No specialist tooling, electrical connection or calibration is required to operate the system.

An essential piece of equipment for any packaging facility, the LeakVIEW is fundamentally able to test any sealed packaging component with a head space.
