Leak detectors use state-of-the-art optical CO2 sensors
May 9, 2012
PBI-Dansensor (www.pbi-dansensor.com) has upgraded its pioneering leak detection systems for Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) with two new systems. The new LeakMatic II and LeakPointer II now utilize a state-of-the-art optical CO2 sensor to detect package leaks. The new optical sensor is faster and more responsive to detecting even trace amounts of CO2.
The NEW optical sensor delivers many benefits to the packer/processer:
- Not sensitive to the elevated CO2 levels often found in a MAP food production environment. Ready to use in one minute.
- Works in tandem with a new, advanced leak-testing algorithm that ensures accuracy of actual leaks in the MAP product.
The LeakPointer II is for use in an Off-Line setting designed for smaller applications of leak detection. Unlike water bath detectors, the Leak Pointer II eliminate the risk of cross contamination and operator subjectivity. Individual test programs are created for each product tested and the full test cycle takes 15-30 seconds depending on the product set up.
“PBI-Dansensor invented CO2-based leak detection around 20 years ago, a method that is a fast and reliable way of finding leaks without the mess of water,” says sales and marketing director Karsten Kejlhof. “We have unrivalled experience in the field and have now advanced the technology even further. Leak detection needs a technology that is fast and extremely accurate. The new system achieves these goals, as well as being versatile and user-friendly”.
