Packaging Integrity Tester (RL-PIT-A)

The RYCOLAB package integrity tester (PIT) uses a vacuum method to measure the gas leaking from a wide range of flexible pack types and sizes. Items are placed manually into the unit, and the handle is closed to initiate the test sequence. Results are displayed as a Pass or Fail, along with a quantitative measure of the leakage rate. 

Simple operation
Non-destructive test
No special sample preparation is needed
Only compressed air and electricity required
Suitable for lab and filling line

Description

The package integrity tester (PIT) uses a vacuum method to measure the gas leaking from a wide range of flexible pack types and sizes. Items are placed manually into the unit, and the handle is closed to initiate the test sequence. Results are displayed as a Pass or Fail, along with a quantitative measure of the leakage rate.

The tests are fast – as short as 5 seconds for small packs – objective, easy to use and reliable. They do not stress or inflate the package, are dry and non-destructive. Up to twenty test methods can be programmed and stored with simple access if modifications to test methods are required. For ease of operation and traceability there are menu prompted diagnostic functions and calibration routines. The tester includes test data logging for the past 30 days operation.
