Detecting Leaks in MAP Food Packages

The Contura S400 Leak Detector offers 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 the Inficon Contura S400 Leak Detector can detect any leak without tracer gas and without damage to the package. Inficon featured the Contura S400 at PACK EXPO Connects.

PACK EXPO Connects – November 9-13. Now more than ever, packaging and processing professionals need solutions for a rapidly changing world, and the power of the PACK EXPO brand delivers the decision makers you need to reach. Attendee registration is open now.

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. 

Go here for a PACK EXPO Connects demo of the Contura S400. PACK EXPO Connects runs through Friday, November 13, and as of Wednesday PMMI reported it had attracted 17,000 attendees visiting the booths and viewing the demos from more than 700 committed exhibitors who are driving the show.
