ALPS manufactures systems for non-destructive leak testing of containers and packages and is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Air Logic Power Systems (ALPS) was founded in 1974 and manufactured its first leak tester in 1978. The first high speed rotary system for non-destructive leak testing was supplied in 1985 for the rapidly expanding HDPE plastic container market. In the 1990s, ALPS developed its first electronic leak test circuit and began to focus on non-destructive leak testing for the packaging industry.
Growth into plastic container leak testing markets continued in the 2000s, especially for high speed PET container applications. The ALPS NexGen Rotary container leak tester was developed for speeds up to the 1,200 BPM (72,000 BPH) range. For lower speed non-destructive leak testing applications, ALPS developed new lines of high speed linear leak testers with fixed and moving test heads. ALPS currently supplies 10 of the Top 10 bottle blow molders in North America.
