Leak Detection Equipment for Flexible Packaging
Get In Touch
The range of products manufactured by Astaara has been specially developed for flexible packaging. We are using the only method suitable for this application, “Flow Measurement at a Constant Pressure”, as instruments using pressure drop do not work on products whose volume changes during the test.
In addition to accurate and reliable micro-leak detection (from 5 microns), Astaara products offer unique advantages:
1/ Altitude simulation: we have developed a test to measure the effects of altitude on flexible packaging. With the AlphaLab, test the resistance of your packaging up to 20,000 feet, discover at which altitude it starts leaking. This simulation is exclusive to Astaara.
2/ When leak tests are performed on products where there is little space inside the package between the product and the film (headspace), the hollow needle gets stuck in the product and clogs very frequently, and the results are not reliable. Astaara has developed and patented a unique perforation method that prevents this blockage: the AlphaTower.
3/ The range of products manufactured by Astaara is today the one and only way to AUTOMATICALLY perform sample leak detection on flexible packaging without any human intervention. Food, Pet Care & Cosmetic Manufacturers are now able to automatically manage leak detection and analyse immediate digital tests results with the AlphaPro.
