Neuhaus Neotec has developed a non-destructive detector that recognizes mico-leaks smaller than 10 µm in coffee packaging. Leaky packaging is a critical concern in the roasted process.
The Leak Test I operates by creating a vacuum between two highly elastic membranes and then analyzes the difference in pressure in seconds. Vacuum detection reduces the reject rate, ensures the packaging quality and thus the required quality of coffee in bottles, cans, bags, capsules and coffee pods in pouches. A status LED in the plexiglass cover indicates the test phase with colors that signal the test results. Results are displayed on a 7-inch touchscreen.
Intelligent data analysis enables workers to quickly detect and fix packaging errors in line.
The device is easily integrated in production lines or laboratories, allowing a quick and hygienic random assessment of several types of packaging including thermoformed bottles and MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) inert gas packages.
