How it works.
The leak checker is based on the detection of Carbon Dioxide leaking from the package. While this means that it can only for use with packages where CO2 is part of the modified atmosphere protocol, CO2 is used in a wide variety of food products and so the leak pointer is widely applicable. The system works by lowering the pressure in the test chamber. This causes a pressure difference between the chamber and the package headspace. This causes the headspace in the package to leak into the test chamber if there are are any defects in the package or the seal. A new optical CO2 sensor is used to detect the leaking CO2. The Leak Pointer can detect even very small pinholes very quickly and the test can be completed in 15 seconds depending on the package size. The test chamber can accomodate individual or packs or boxes up to 22 x 26 x 6 inches (depends on model). The
