Profile Solutions, based in Kenthurst, Australia, announced that its “slowest leak detector” just got 40 percent faster.
The company makes the 6LD, which it claims is the world's fastest single-head leak detector, which can test up to 10,900 small bottles per hour and find holds as small as 0.18 millimeters.
However, the company said this high speed is often unnecessary for most blow molders, so Profile Solutions has offered its entry-level 2LD model. Now the firm has increased the maximum speed of the 2LD, so it can run up to 3,700 small containers per hour on one head. Many other machines need two or three heads to get that rate and be able to detect a hole of this size, according to the company.
At the K 2010 show in Germany, Profile Solutions ran a 240-millimeter bottle being tested at 2,500 per hour on the 2LD. That same bottle can now run at 3,560 bottles an hour, again detecting holds as small as 0.18 millimeters.
The Australian company's U.S. operation, Profile Solutions USA, is in Aurora, Ill.
