VeriCon Leak Testers

PTI Inspection Systems will exhibit VeriCon Leak Testers for online inspection of bottles and containers at the NPE Show, June 22 – 26, 2009 at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL in Booth S30059. Applications include the plastic, blow molding, food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

Heinz Wolf, general manager, commented, "With over 25 years experience, PTI offers reliable, industry proven technology with over 1,500 inspection systems installed to-date. VeriCon leak testers are established worldwide, assuring container integrity in a variety of industries and applications."

VeriCon Configurations Include:

  • Trimmer Mount – single and dual station units designed to integrate with indexing machinery/trimmer mount installations.
  • Linear Leak Testers – single and multi-station testers with inspection speeds up to 70 bottles/min.
  • Continuous Motion Testers – single and multi-station leak testers with inspection speeds up to 150 bottles/min.

All VeriCon systems offer the following features and benefits:

  • High resolution non-drifting transducers (either pressure transducers or vacuum transducers) for consistent leak detection
  • Precision leak testing with repeatable results
  • Easy touch screen operator interface
  • 24/7 operation
  • Easy troubleshooting and low maintenance
  • Ability to accommodate various container specifications, line speed, special handling and test sensitivity requirements

VeriCon testers are well-suited for small, medium to large size containers with inspection rates up to the 150 bottles/min. range," added Wolf. "In addition to the basic inspection economics of identifying leaking containers and minimizing false rejects, VeriCon systems offer many additional advantages that increase overall operational efficiency. The Auto-learn feature for example, which automates setup of accept/reject criteria. Customers also need fast and easy changeover to test different size containers, and real time inspection data with reject statistics and test result trends for on demand analysis of container quality."

PTI Inspection Systems also offers the advantage of prompt delivery and installation. "We make every effort to provide immediate response to customer's urgent requests," stated Wolf. "We've been able to deliver and install certain model VeriCon testers within a day or two of receiving the order. We take great pride in providing customers with the highest level of support and service to insure their 100% satisfaction with our inspection systems."
