Leak detection instruments for modified atmosphere packaging
AMETEK MOCON, Berwyn, Pa., launched two new analytical instruments — the Dansensor LeakPointer 3 and the LeakPointer 3+ — to detect leaks in modified atmosphere packaging (MAP).
The new Dansensor LeakPointer 3 detects very small holes with great precision. It detects leak sizes down to 50 m (microns) and is optimized for use with single packages with cycle times down to 10 seconds.
Its sister instrument, the Dansensor LeakPointer 3+, is applicable for large packages or multipack testing. With a larger chamber, it can test multiple smaller packages or one large package using slightly higher cycle times than the Dansensor LeakPointer 3. Features include auto data logging, an easy operation interface via a touch screen and auto workflow options.
