Packaging test control system
Company: Flex Essentials Inc., Caledon East, Ontario
Equipment Snapshot: Flex Essentials Inc. now offers a semiautomatic control package for its FlexPak Package Leak Detector. The FPSA consists of a sleek, stainless steel, independent panel with an operator interface, all pneumatics and PLC to control the vacuum set points and test times. The process allows operators to set two independent or successive vacuum level set points for bubble emission tests, vacuum tests, altitude tests and dry chamber tests. Operators can program each test with a countdown timer. The only connection from the control box to the FlexPak Package Leak Detector vacuum test unit is an air line, enabling users to retrofit the FPSA to all FlexPak or similar competitors’ vacuum-style, bubble-test, package leak detectors.
