Bottles & Containers (Plastics)


Bottles and Containers Leak Testing

Bottle leak testing is what guarantees container quality. Some of the most common bottles are for juices, milk and dairy products, carbonated soft drinks, water, energy drinks, dressings, sauces, oils, household cleaning products and much more. In order to ensure the quality of these products bottle leak testing is performed to check that each bottle will not leak.

VeriCon Inspection Systems – Bottle and Container Leak Testers

VeriCon inspection systems is a complete line of leak testers for empty bottles and containers. To accommodate various container specifications, line speed, handling and test sensitivity requirements, VeriCon systems are obtainable in configurations including linear leak testing, continuous motion leak testing, and trimmer units for indexing installations. All VeriCon systems make use of high-resolution non-drifting transducers (either pressure transducers or vacuum transducers) for consistent leak detection. The PTI bottle leak testing technologies are distinctive in both reliability and performance. PTI offers a finished line of VeriCon inspection systems for online leak detection of bottles and containers for the blow molding, injection molding, food & beverage industries. VeriCon Inspection systems include reject statistics and test result trends, permitting for on demand analysis of container quality.

VeriCon 126+ Online Bottle Leak Testing – Easy Plug & Play Installation

The VeriCon 126+ is a highly robust inline linear leak test system that operates 24/7 without loss of sensitivity and requires minimal maintenance. Available in either one or two station configurations, it is very flexible and can be easily installed on many different conveyor systems. The 126+ is operator friendly and now offers several new-to-market upgrades and enhancements. Real time inspection data includes reject statistics and test result trends, allowing for on demand analysis of container quality, with enhanced data collection and data transfer capability. This data transfer capability allows production data to be viewed live on the plant floor or monitored at the headquarter level.

The VeriCon 126+ offers increased leak test sensitivity with the capability to measure down to 200 microns, depending on container shape, size and line speed.

VeriCon 126+ Benefits:

  • 24/7 operation
  • Reliability
  • Sensitivity
  • Versatility
  • Data Integration & Data Transfer
Vericon Technology:

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 displays on the operator panel and the defective container is rejected from the line.
