ALPS (Air Logic Power Systems, LLC) is a world leader in the manufacturing of automated container leak testing equipment. ALPS has delivered more than 2,000 leak detectors for all container types and production rates, with the current population of machines testing approximately 50 billion containers each year.
ALPS NexGen Rotary container inspection systems offer break-through speed capacity, 'quick-change no-tool' change parts for optimised changeovers, and state-of-the-art controls offering improved leak testing accuracy and connectivity.
Currently available models range from four to 30 test stations for rates from 100 CPM to 1,200 CPM. Auxiliary tests are available, including turntable vacuum assist, functional seal surface inspections, topload, height and integrated vision inspections.
NexGen Rotaries have been utilised to leak test plastic and metal bottles, canisters and cans as well as dispensing closures. A hygienic stainless steel version of the machine is also available for on-line verification of seal integrity on foil-sealed powder products.
The Speed-Glider is a new multistation continuous motion linear leak tester designed for inspection speeds up to the 250 CPM (15,000 CPH) range. Positive container handling and control is accomplished through the use of a precision timing screw for each container type.
Advantages include the ability to mount over an existing conveyor, no sensors necessary to position and stage bottles for the leak test and preventing untested containers from passing through due to sensor errors or fallen bottles.
SS Linear is a single-station inspection system using an integrated, indexing conveyor. Use of a servo-driven vacuum conveyor enables precise bottle handling and, together with high speed leak test circuitry, allows testing rates and accuracies that are higher than competitive models. The SS Linear features a full colour touch screen with extensive use of visuals and a simple icon based menu structure.
The RS Linear leak tester is a unique continuous-motion linear leak tester which requires no change parts tooling. It is designed to test directly over an existing continuous conveyor, automatically tracking, following and testing the bottles as they travel down the production line. The RS is ideal for hard-to-handle containers that cannot be reliably stopped or transferred between conveyors. The RS Linear features a full colour touch screen with extensive use of visuals and a simple icon based menu structure.
The SX Linear is a single-station bottle stop leak tester, which Gates and Stops containers over an existing conveyor for the leak test. This unit allows testing over a customer conveyor for bottles that can be reliably stopped with cylinders. The SX Linear features a full colour touch screen with extensive use of visuals and a simple icon based menu structure.
ALPS has experience integrating leak inspection to multiple styles of machinery. A NexGen Rotary leak tester turret is available to monoblock within high-speed rotary machines such as trimmers, spout-insertion machines or blow molders.
ALPS has an experienced and motivated team to support your 24-hour-a-day production. With a customer-driven culture, ALPS is positioned to become an extension of your engineering and production teams.
