Filtec leak detector


Filtec leak detectorThe new Pressure-Leak Detector system uses a beltless design to detect misplaced caps, stress cracks, pinholes and other defects in PET and HDPE containers, whether they hold carbonated beverages, LN2 dosed water, teas or juices. Instead of using belts that need to be adjusted frequently, each bottle is supported firmly by precisely positioned guide rails while being inspected by an intelligent sensor utilizing a proprietary algorithm. This enables the leak detector to give an immediate and reliable read. When the pressure is outside the acceptable limits, a defect is indicated, and the bottle is rejected from the line.
