TC leak detection machine for glass ampoules and vials
The TC leak detection compact machine is the best, easy and compact solution for a reliable detection of micro-cracks or pinholes affecting the sterility of glass containers.
Each container, tilted in horizontal position, is tested with a high voltage discharge (up to 40 KV) applied to its two ends. Not leaking containers are perfect isolators and allow the passage of a minimal current while the presence of a micro-crack generates an electric discharge with a high current passing through the conductive liquid. Two electrodes repeat the test twice in the containers allowing the detection of micro-holes in the range of micron even in liquids with low conductivity. The original and patented system to tilt in horizontal position the containers allows a very compact machine, easy to clean and maintain, with a simple size change free from adjustments. Repetitive results and easiness of setup, due mainly to a smart reduction of parameters and to integrated test devices of high voltage signals, allow an easy validation of the machine.
