NuvoTrace Technologies Inc: Blister pack tester

Trace900 Blister and Package tester from NuvoTrace safely and quickly tests packages for leak tightness down to 7 micron channels.
Print Reprint
     
The self-contained tester replaces the methylene blue dunking method. It uses Helium as a tracer gas; exposes samples to a slight vacuum; then allows any leak path(s) to pull Helium into the package. The second chamber draws any leaking Helium out of the sample and into a non-Mass Spec Helium detector.
