The LeakProtego is a fully automated leak testing system that helps food processors ensure that individual modified atmosphere packages (MAP) are not leaving facilities with undetected micro leaks.
This online system is engineered to test for potential leaks at levels lower than previously possible. Currently, most food processors test for leaks further down the line.
A patent-pending sensing system with CO2 as a trace gas is used to detect leaks down to 50 microns. The technology relies on modular units, each of which can test up to 12 packages per minute. Multiple modules can be combined to keep up with MAP equipment output.
These modules provide processors with critical information such as individual leak size and rate.
