PTI's VeriCon 126+ for Bottle and Container Leak testing

PTI's VeriCon 126+ for Bottle and Container Leak testing

Why use VeriCon 126+ for Bottle and Container Leak testing?

PTI offers a complete line of VeriCon inspection systems for online leak detection of bottles and containers for the blow molding, injection molding, food & beverage industries. VeriCon leak systems can accommodate a wide range of container specifications, line speed, handling, and test sensitivity requirements. VeriCon systems are operator friendly, minimize downtime, and increase productivity.

The VeriCon 126+ is a highly efficient leak detection instrument that requires minimal maintenance and operates 24/7 without loss of sensitivity. Its ability to measure leaks down to 200 microns makes it a practical choice for bottle and container leak testing. The VeriCon 126+ is available with one or two stations as a linear in-line leak tester as well as configurations for blow molding lines. The VeriCon 126+ offers several new-to-market upgrades and enhancements.

Technology Overview

The VeriCon 126+ leak test system utilizes pressure decay technology and features a new PLC with increased test sensitivity. During the test cycle, the container is filled with pressure to a certain level. The amount of pressure decay is monitored and measured which correlates to the presence of leaks within the container. The pass/fail result is then displayed on the operator panel and the defective container is rejected from the line.

Features and Benefits of VeriCon 126+

  • Real time inspection data
  • Self-teach software
  • Non-drift transducers for consistent leak detection
  • Low false rejects
  • Operator friendly
  • Reject statistics & test result trends
  • 24/7 operation
  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced downtime
  • Low maintenance

Ensuring Bottle and Container Integrity through VeriCon Technology

Ensuring bottle and container integrity through VeriCon Technology

What is VeriCon Technology?

VeriCon system encompasses a complete line of leak testers for empty bottles and containers. It is a powerful leak detection system that operates round-the-clock to ensure high leak test sensitivity with the capability to measure down to 200 microns. Under this process, the container is filled with pressure to a certain level. The rate of pressure decay is analyzed and measured which corresponds to pressure within the container. The operating panel displays pass/fail results and the defective container is rejected from the line . With PTI’s VeriCon technology, users can choose from a wide range of leak tester configurations, according to different container specifications. Its applications include plastic, blow molding, food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. VeriCon technology works well for small, medium to large size containers and has inspection rates upto150 bottles/min. range. According to Heinz Wolf, general manager, Packaging Technologies and Inspection “In addition to the basic inspection economics of identifying leaking containers and minimizing false rejects, VeriCon systems offer many additional advantages that increase overall operational efficiency. The Auto-learn feature for example, automates setup of accept/reject criteria. Real time inspection data with reject statistics and test result With reject statistics & test result trends, VeriCon technology ensures on demand analyses of container quality.”

VeriCon technology can be implemented using pressure decay or vacuum decay technology. Plastic containers of almost all sizes use pressure decay technology. In situations where due to specific characteristics of the container, pressure decay technology is not capable of detecting leaks, Vacuum decay technology is applicable. Depending on the line speed/hole size requirement, VeriCon testers are available in one to four station configurations.

VeriCon Configurations

  • Trimmer mount: available in single and dual station configurations, VeriCon trimmer mount systems are designed precisely for indexing systems installations.
  • Linear Leak Testers: available in single or multi-station configurations for standard online linear leak detection with inspection speeds up to 70 bottles/min.
  • Continuous Motion Testers : available in 1 to 4 station configurations with inspection speeds up to 150 bottles/min. Continuous motion inspection’s high speed testing ensures uninterrupted inspection of containers.

Benefits of VeriCon technology:

All VeriCon systems offer the following features and benefits:

  • VeriCon technology uses high-resolution non-drifting transducers thereby ensuring consistent leak detection.
  • Accurate leak testing with repeatable results
  • 24/7 operation
  • Capable of accommodating multiple container specifications and test sensitivity requirement

Ensuring packaging quality is pivotal in all manufacturing. For efficient packaging, it is important for manufacturers to have complete knowledge of packaging material used and test sensitivity desired, so that appropriate package integrity tests can be undertaken.
