ALPS (Air Logic Power Systems) introduces a new version of their successful Speed Glider high speed linear leak tester. ALPS of Wisconsin, USA is a global leader of in-line container leak inspection equipment.
The new Speed Glider 2.5 is a 2-station continuous motion leak tester capable of rates of up to 150 bottles per minute. Featuring a container pitch of 178mm, these leak testers are capable of container heights of up to 127mm for square containers and 158mm for round containers.
Supplied at an approximately 30% lower cost than previous similar performance models, Speed Glider 2.5 provides a 25% reduction in footprint compared to the 3- and 4-station models.
Speed Glider 2.5 bottle leak testers offer higher speed and efficiency, and an easier to setup/changeover alternative to ‘bottle stop’ linear leak testers that stop containers ‘on the fly’ using cylinders.
The timing screw ensures positive container handling and control, allowing high efficiencies and quick changeovers at the higher rate demands. The system can be easily mounted to existing continuous conveyor systems, eliminating the need for additional conveyors and bottle transfers.
Cameras for vision inspection can be placed after the leak tester, with the leak tester’s timing screw functioning as an automatic spacing device.
