Leak Tester (Bubble Leak Tester) Machine for Packaging
The SureVac™ family of leak tester/bubble tester machines is an integral part of any quality control program for sanitary and sterile packaging. SureVac is ideal for detecting gross leaks in a wide range of blister packs, pouches and medical device packaging.

SureVac™ will test a sealed package in a water-filled vacuum chamber to a preset vacuum level for a set amount of time. Air bubbles are an indication of a leak. An immediate seal failure is indicated by a “burst” of the package in the water. A great tool for performing the following ASTM tests; ASTM D-6653, ASTM D-3078, ASTM D-4991.

Eliminate operator subjective judgments and errors by following a standard validation process. SureVac™ provides validated quality assurance for these testing purposes;

Leak Detection: Test packages from your production line to determine if there are imperfections in the seal, resulting in leaks.

Seal Integrity: Determine the seal strength of a package by testing the vacuum level at which a seal fails. Specific areas of failure can indicate weak points of sealing and aid in troubleshooting packaging machinery setup.

Altitude Simulation: Test packages by simulating varying conditions created by altitude changes during shipping. Packages may be affected when exposed to the pressure differential created by high altitude conditions, such as air freight or land transport.
