Test for leaks and package integrity with blue dye or bubble test

The Dansensor Lippke VC1400 finds even the smallest leaks in blister packages, glass vials, flexible, semi-rigid, or rigid packages. Meaures seal strength and package integrity for quality control, R&D package testing and process optimisation on the packaging line.

A bench-top instrument that automates the classic methylene blue dye test (requires a domed lid) and bubble emission test (requires a flat lid), with precise, definable and reproducible results.

Available either with an integrated vacuum ejector (requires pressurised air), or with an external, stackable vacuum pump (PU1400).

Test parameters and results are automatically stored and can be printed, or exported, as a CSV file. Vacuum and penetration time can easily be adjusted on the touchscreen. IQ/OQ validation documents are available.

Standards: ASTM D3078 (Standard Test Method for Determination of Leaks in Flexible Packaging by Bubble Emission)
