ALPS (Air Logic Power Systems) of Wisconsin, USA has introduced the latest version of their successful Speed Glider high speed linear leak testers. ALPS is a global leader of in-line container leak inspection equipment.
Specifically designed for larger container sizes, the Speed Glider 3.85 offers higher speed, higher efficiency and an easier to setup/changeover alternative to ‘bottle stop’ linear leak testers that stop containers ‘on the fly’ using cylinders.
The 3-station continuous motion leak tester is capable of rates of up to 185 bottles per minute, has a container pitch of 266mm and is nominally capable of container heights of up to 215mm.
A timing screw provides positive container handling and control to ensure high efficiencies and quick/efficient 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 acting as an automatic spacing device.
