Bench-Top Perforating Tower

The ASTAARA AlphaTower is a bench-top perforating instrument. It has been designed to avoid the usage of expensive septum & needles. The AlphaTower can be connected to any instrument like leak detector or O2 or CO2 analyser. After connection, place the sample under the tower, adjust it, manually downwards, perforation starts automatically, perform the test and read the results on your instrument. It is only possible to connect a single instrument at a time.

Warranty: 3 years.

1/ Accurate testing.

Currently, all main methods to leak test flexible packaging require that you use a septum & a hollow needle. When there is little space inside between the product and the packing (headspace), the hollow needle could pierce the food, which would partially or totally block the needle. As a consequence, the flow may become reduced, or even stopped, and the results of the gas test or leak test will likely be compromised.

The AlphaTower is not using a hollow needle, but a solid thin conical stainless-steel pointer. It cannot get blocked, as the air or the gas is not passing  through it. Therefore, the measurements will always be 100% accurate regardless of the nature of the food tested.

2/ Cost savings.

With the AlphaTower, consumables like septum and needles are no longer needed, as it is using a solid thin conical stainless-steel pointer.

3/ Versatility.

If you already have a leak tester or a gas analyser of any brand, it can connect to the AlphaTower to test your products.

1/ What if I do not have a leak tester or a gas analyser?

Please refer to the AlphaLab or the GammaLab. The AlphaTower is included.

2/ What if I have trouble connecting the AlphaTower with my instrument?

We can assist you by remote video conferencing if there is no Service Company in your area / Country. This would be during normal office hours. We are located in Singapore (GMT + 8). It is possible to support you outside of normal office hours by prior arrangement.

3/ Is there a risk that the package will be perforated totally, and the perforating pointer be damaged?

No, it is not mechanically possible that the perforating pointer will come in contact with the base, as it will stop 1 mm before.
