Pack-Vac Leak Detectors for Quality Control

Our Pack-Vac Leak Detectors help you guarantee to your customers that your packaging system is dependable once it leaves your facility. Issues such as packaging material compatibility, sealing machine set-up, and seal reliability in high altitude trucking and airfreight (view Altitude Conversion Chart) are just some of the production variables that need to be taken into account. The manufacturing considerations are countless.

A systematic package testing system that incorporates our Pack-Vac Leak Detectors will allow you to quickly and reliably set-up packaging lines. The result: less downtime for machinery adjustments. Additionally, continual process monitoring with our Pack-Vac Leak Detectors will detect sealing problems before they snowball, thus improving production yield. Above all, our Pack-Vac Leak Detectors will catch defects before they get to your customers. Add an Electronic Controller for altitude simulation to be sure your packages are tested to the ideal conditions.

Straightforward Operation
Our Pack-Vac Leak Detectors allow the user to perform a vacuum test in less than 30 seconds. For most packages, the unit is partly filled with water for the test (burst strength tests can be done dry). Drop in your sealed package, close the lid, and engage the vacuum device. Now watch for bubbles. As easy as 1-2-3.

Choosing the Right Pack-Vac Leak Detector
Now that you know you need one of our Pack-Vac Leak Detectors, here's how to find the right one for your application.

Connection Requirements
Our Pack-Vac Leak Detectors generate vacuum in one of two ways depending on available utilities. The Venturi Vacuum Generator operates using compressed air. We recommend this set-up if standard dry plant air (60-80 P.S.I., 2-6 C.F.M.) is available. Ideal for abusive production environments. If compressed air is not available, we recommend the Electric Vacuum Pump. Our electric model comes equipped with a quiet and durable vacuum pump, 115 VAC standard (unless otherwise specified).

Our Pack-Vac Leak Detectors are available in eight production models. Haug also can craft custom sizes, so there is always one to meet your needs. Not sure what size you need? Send us your package and we will conduct tests to determine the correct Pack-Vac Leak Detector for your application. Haug Quality Equipment is now producing the largest acrylic vacuum chamber style leak detectors on the market, with interior dimensions of 32" x 26" x 20". With our new machining center, we can produce tanks even larger than that.
