The integrity of the sealing of the products is of concern to all food manufacturers, especially in the case of products packaged in a protective atmosphere where this integrity is a key factor in not endangering the expiration of the product.

In most food production facilities packages leakage occurs mainly due to contamination of the seal by food or due to mechanical problems related to pressure, heat and duration of the sealing process. Both problems can be easily solved with a Flexpak Inc leak detector.

Leakage Indicators:

The oxygen and carbon dioxide indicators can be used to monitor the quality of the food. They can be used as leakage indicators or to verify the efficiency of, for example, an oxygen scavenger. Many of these indicators acquire a color change as a result of a chemical or enzymatic reaction (the most used dye for leakage indicators is methylene blue, whose color change is based on an oxidation-reduction reaction). In Japan, oxygen indicators are widely used with many fresh or prepared foods packed with an oxygen absorber in a transparent plastic or glass container. Carbon dioxide indicators are now starting to be commercial.

Freshness Indicators

An ideal indicator to control the quality of packaged foods would be one that indicated the deterioration or lack of freshness of the product, in addition to excessive temperatures or container leakage. Numerous patents exist in which mechanisms of indication of freshness are described based on the detection of volatile metabolites produced by the aging of foods such as carbon dioxide, diacetates, amines (of fish), ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.

Flexpack Leak Detector Machine:

Leak Detector / Device to test the integrity of waterproofing for the packaging industry Flexpack leak detector is a tester control quality of the integrity of the waterproofing, ideal for testing the integrity of the seal detection leaks for many types of packaging including: three-sided bags, self-supporting / rigid / standing bags, side gusseted bags, bottom sealing bags, rigid trays with lid material, packing filled with modified atmosphere (MAP ) / protective atmosphere (EAP) and many other applications for food packaging or medical packaging.

The flex-pack leak detector offers manufacturers of food packaging machines, and the food industry in general, a unique solution to detect leaks in protective atmosphere food packages. Whether it is a large leak or a small one, undetectable to the naked eye or by the water bath method, the unique flex-pack technology can detect any leakage without tracer gas and without damaging the container.

Consistent quality control and Process Monitoring:

Flexpack leak detector is simple, reliable, repeatable, and provide consistent quality control and process monitoring…

  • Test the minimum point of success
  • Test the point of failure
  • Perform an altitude simulation

With this tester, you can adjust the settings of the machine to test the integrity of the impermeabilization, such as the rest interval, the temperature and the pressure to correct possible problems of the integrity of the seal that are found during the test.

The flex-pack leak detector is a sealing quality control device consisting of a transparent vacuum reservoir, a vacuum system, a control valve and the gauge that indicates the level of vacuum. The vacuum tank is mounted on a stainless steel support. During the test the package is submerged in the tank, the lid is closed, and the vacuum valve is activated. At that time if there is a leak, the quality control inspector can easily see the air in the form of bubbles escaping from the package. By increasing the vacuum level, the breaking point can be tested until a seal failure occurs. A complete test can be done quickly and easily!

How to choose the right USB charger cable?
Rate this post

This is a fast-moving world. You can find innovations now and then.  It is very difficult to find the right kind of accessories for devices nowadays.  One such big problem is charger cable. A charger cable worsens the situation if it does not suit your device properly. So, a right kind of USB charger cable has to be purchased.   A USB (Universal Serial Bus) is one of the common connectivity which enables and simplifies the communication between different devices with a host controller. For instance- nowadays our mobile charges come along with interacting USB charging cable through which you can charge your mobile phone, share data with other devices such as other mobile phone, laptops or desktop personal computer.  Initially, the USB cable was meant for only charging of the mobile phones, but the development in technology has enabled to transfer even data between the devices.

Types of “USB cables”: Based on the design, functionality,and speed, we can classify the USB cables into three categories:

  • USB cable: This was the initial USB cable that was innovated. In these types of the USB cable, the interaction is from the host to the peripheral.  Normally the cable configuration is designed in such a way that it is from type A to type B.
  • USB 2 Cable: This is a development of the earlier USB cable.  The speed of functions it does increases from the initial one.  Even here the communication goes from host to the peripheral devices with the same cable configuration type A to Type B.
  • USB 3 Cable: This is the latest version of the USB cables. The speed of functioning increases from megabytes to gigabytes with the same specification,e., communication passes from host to peripheral devices with cable configuration Type A to Type B.,But the latest version has a special facility.  The cable can be used from both the ends or the plug can be reversed.  This facility has made the usage simpler.

Different types of USB cables

The size and shape are the main factors that differentiate the USB cables.  Initially, USB cables used to be manufactured with a round tip.  But now a flatly shaped pin is being manufactured.  Even the devices also have a point specifically designed to allow the USB charger to be used to charge the device.  It depends on the device how many pins are there.  So accordingly, even the charger cable is being designed.  But if you want to buy a new charger cable, you will have checked the charger point and ensure whether it has a round pin or flat pin.  Nowadays, you get USB charger cable under various brands such as Apple charger cable which will suit any of your mobile smart phones.

So, when you are planning to buy a charger cable always check for the same brand USB charger cable which is similar to your phone else buy a USB charger cable which is best suitable for your mobile.
