TECHNICAL and Scientific Equipment has extended its range of package integrity test systems for flexible packs with the release of the compact TSE 6085 benchtop test system.
The package is simply placed in the enclosure, the handle is closed and an automatic test will indicate whether the pack is leaking within a few seconds.
Designed to replace tests such as underwater bubble tests, or manual squeezing, the test is totally non-destructive, clean, dry and objective.
It is ideal for routine QC checks on packs ranging from MAP (Modified Atmosphere) packs for meat, cheese, smallgoods etc to snack foods.
It removes the subjectivity from operator checks, and allows testing to be performed on packs where the product fills most of the volume, so that squeezing is not practical.
The TSE 6085 complements a range of locally developed test systems including larger, mobile integrity testers and high speed systems for on line testing.
