INFICON to debut new packaging leak detector at PACK EXPO

INFICON (www.inficon.com) is expanding its portfolio of non-destructive leak detection equipment to include the Contura S600, which features an oversized test chamber. Designed to reliably and cost-effectively test products sold for bulk retail and foodservice applications as well as large format Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and flexible packages, the system helps manufacturers extend shelf life, prevent costly recalls and returns and reduce waste. The Contura S600 will debut at PACK EXPO at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Sept. 23-25, Booth #7777.

Just like the recently launched Contura S400, the S600 model relies on a proprietary differential pressure method to detect both gross and fine leaks and offers a faster, easier and quantifiable alternative to methodologies like water baths and gas-based testing. With the new test chamber, food manufacturers can increase efficiencies by testing multiple products at the same time. The Contura S600 is ideal for a variety of food applications including pet food, meat and poultry, baked goods, snack foods, confectionery/candy, cheese, grains and cereals, prepared food and produce.

“Identifying package leaks, however big or small, is a necessity for food manufacturers looking to catch faulty packages before they make it to store shelves,” said Bill Burnard, Package Integrity Sales & Business Development Manager, North America, INFICON. “As bulk and oversized packages continue to proliferate the market, the Contura S600 gives manufacturers additional flexibility to test their large size products and protect food quality, enhance safety and maximize consumer satisfaction. The addition of the S600 to the Contura family also ensures that INFICON is well-equipped to meet the varying needs of today’s food manufacturers.”

INFICON’s experts will be available during the show to discuss attendees’ specific application needs and how to choose the right leak detection method. To schedule a meeting with INFICON during PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2019, contact [email protected].
