New Technology for Detecting Leaks in MAP Food Packages
The innovative Contura S400 Leak Detector offers manufacturers of food packaging machines and the food industry, in general, a unique solution for detecting leaks in MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) and other flexible packages. Whether it is a gross leak or a fine leak that it is undetectable by the naked eye or by the water bath method, the unique technology of Contura S400 can detect any leak without tracer gas and without damage to the package.
The principle of operation is also simple and accurate. The foil chamber consists of two highly elastic membranes. By creating a vacuum, these membranes tightly enclose the tested package. The device analyzes the pressure increase in a few seconds. Contura S400 Leak Detector can then detect even the smallest leaks rapidly and reliably.
In various market segments - from the automotive industry, refrigeration and air conditioning technology to the manufacture of semiconductor components and solar technology - INFICON leak testing products make a decisive contribution to the highest quality and greater safety in production processes. INFICON has many years of experience in the field of leak detection and has used this experience to meet the requirements of the food and packaging industry. In addition to its proven leak detectors, INFICON now offers an innovative solution especially for these industries: The Contura S400 and Contura S600 Its unique function principle requires no test gas and avoids damage to the tested packaging.
