Air Logic Power Systems, represented in Oceania by HBM Plastics & Packaging Technologies , have released a new version of the Speed Glider high speed linear leak tester. Called the Speed Glider 4.5s, this new model is designed for the pharmaceutical bottle market.
The 4 station continuous leak tester is able to test as many as 250 bottles a minute. It also incorporates a smaller root diameter timing screw which can handle container sizes down to a diameter of approx. 1.9cm.
To ensure high efficiencies and quick changeovers at the higher rate demands, the timing screw provides positive container handling and control.
It is easy to mount the system to existing continuous conveyor systems. This eliminates the need for additional conveyors and bottle transfers.
The machine is designed to detect ‘Short Shot’, Seal surface and other types of seal defects that tend to occur with the manufacturer of injection blow moulded containers.
Cameras for vision inspection can be placed after the leak tester, with the leak tester's timing screw acting as an automatic spacing device.
