Witt-Gasetechnik has enhanced its Leak-Master Easy Plus leak tester with hardware and software upgrades.

Said to offer all the advantages of water-bath testing with the added “rich possibilities” of digital control, the Leak-Master Easy Plus is now billed as being more convenient to use.

According to Witt-Gasetechnik, a new high-resolution touch display and new user interface offer clearer and more intuitive user-friendly menu navigation, improving the inspection process and the documentation of the measurement results for the quality team member.

The Leak-Master Easy Plus is suitable for leak testing virtually any packaging and numerous components, Witt-Gasetechnik said. The only requirement is the presence of air or gas inside the item to be tested, it added. The instrument is available in several chamber sizes.    

Data for products, users and test programmes can be set up quickly and easily, according to the German firm. After logging on to the device and selecting the product to be tested, the user places the package in the test chamber filled with water, closes the lid and starts the test programme.

The pre-set vacuum is generated automatically and maintained for the defined period. The user carries out a visual inspection as usual and, after the test, must enter whether the packaging was leak-tight or not. The result is a standardised test sequence that can be reproduced at any time.
