Now Superseded by the Dansensor LeakPointer 3 and 3+

Off-line, Non-destructive Leak Testing of Individual Packs

  • Very sensitive optical sensor
  • Highly effective for detecting micro- leaks
  • Fast paybacks on investment through the fast identification of leaking packs leading to the optimization of the packaging process
  • Reduce waste, reduce returns, reduce rework and reduce loss of machine time.

The Dansensor® LeakPointer II is a compact off-line leak system, with an optical sensor, that offers the possibility of monitoring individual packs, or small groups of packs. By using the CO2 MAP gas as a trace gas, it’s possible to test packages shortly after being produced. The resultant real time information enables the optimization of the packaging process, to progressively improve overall packaging performance.

This test method is non-destructive and it’s possible to test a pack, or a number of packs at one time. The package is placed inside the Dansensor® LeakPointer II test chamber, and a user-defined vacuum is created, to establish a pressure difference between the inside of the package and the test chamber. This causes CO2 from the package to enter the test chamber through even the smallest leak.
A highly sensitive sensor measures all changes in the CO2 content and will detect even micro leaks. A visual & audible alarm are triggered when a leak is detected.

Test results are stored for subsequent export, or download.

Benefits of the Dansensor® LeakPointer II:
* Test information for the optimization of the packaging process
* Non-destructive testing
* Reduced risk of cross contamination (compared to traditional water bath)
* Testing is operator independent
* Detects package leaks
* Quality control of seal integrity to ensure product shelf life
* Minimizes the risk of expensive product recalls due to leaking packages
* Discover mechanical packaging machine errors instantly
