Suitable for testing stable and flexible food packaging, the WITT Leak-Master Easy test system enables the detection of leaks without test gas or electricity. The packaging is placed in the water-filled chamber, and the air space above the water level is evacuated with the Venturi nozzle. As the immersed packaging inflates (due to the resultant vacuum), air or filling gas escapes at leaking points, bubbling up in a visible manner. The tester then determines whether and at what point the packaging is leaking in less than 30 seconds. Simple packaging strength tests can be carried out in the dry chamber. An optional extension set makes the system suitable for testing vacuum-packed products or products with very low gas space.
