ALPS is proud to introduce the new Speed-Glider container leak tester at NPE 2012.
The Speed-Glider is a multiple-station continuous-motion linear container leak tester intended for inspection speeds up to 250 to 300 CPM (15,000 to 18,000 CPH). Hole size sensitivity is comparable to a 4-station rotary leak tester, at approximately 3/4 of the cost. Speed capacity is comparable to an 8-station rotary leak tester, at less than 2/3 of the cost.
The ALPS Speed-Glider 4.5 on display is a four-station machine designed for containers ranging from approximately 8 to 64 ounces (250ml to 2L).
Positive container handling and control is accomplished through the use of a precision timing screw for each container type. The advantages of timing screw handling include:
