LeakProtego is designed to help food processors ensure that individual modified atmosphere packages (MAP) are not going out the door with undetected micro leaks. This is of particular significance for processors who are pushing the shelf life envelope. Unit uses a patent-pending sensing system with CO2 as a trace gas to detect leaks down to 50 microns. The technology relies on modular units, each of which can test up to 12 packages per minute. Multiple modules can be combined so that individual package testing can keep up with MAP equipment output. The modules provide processors with critical information such as individual leak size and rate so that production line modifications can be made quickly.
