Ariana seal testers test 100% packs on line on CAP / MAP / ready meal lines - with a pack headspace. Seal leaks as small as 0,2mm can be detected without slowing a thermoformer. Process can be evaluated off-line. Packs are rejected or converged onto single lane.
Inline Seal Tester and Converger System
The Jenton Ariana Inline Seal Tester is both fast and accurate.
The Jenton Ariana In-Line Seal Tester channelizing machine - a non-destructive seal integrity tester and gas volume tester for thermoformed food packs, suitable for Controlled Atmosphere Packaging (C.A.P) and Modified Atmosphere Packaging (M.A.P.), ready meal packs etc. from a thermoformer, tray sealer or flow wrapper. This Seal Tester is able to test packs from up to 15 thermoformer cycles per minute at 180 packs per minute from a tray sealer. Leaking packs are rejected into a standard bin and good packs are converged into a single lane. The Jenton Ariana test system subjects each pack to the longest possible test time in order to identify and reject leaking packs.
